I want to thank you all for your concern and support for Tilly in my last post.
We have always done whatever we can to treat our ailing pets, and our hearts told us to do the same for Tilly. But after several conversations with the vets, we decided the major dental surgery and lengthy recovery was not in Tilly’s best interest. She has been unhappy and in pain for several months, and she was noticeably worse this past week.
We decided the kindest thing we could do for her was to end her suffering in a quick and gentle way. She was euthanized this morning after spending some time outside, enjoying a yummy tube of chicken treat, and getting lots of love from me and her Dad.
This is the hardest decision we have ever had to make. But we did what we knew was best for Tilly.
Give all your pets an extra snuggle. And take care.

We are so terribly sorry for your loss. But you did what you thought best for Tilly and nobody could ask any more of you.
Fly free, sweet Angel Tilly, safe and protected in the loving Paw of the Great Cat in the Sky.
I forget you have a blog, forgive me. I was upset to hear os tilly’s passing on Twitter. She looks the most beautiful cat. I know you would absolutely only do the best for Tilly and respect that. I hope her trip across the Bridge is a safe one, and I will ask Dash Kitten to greet her.
Lots of love and I admit, a few tears,
I am absolutely heartbroken.
Sending you love, Angel Tilly. ❤
I’m so, so sorry. What a beautiful girl she was.
Hugs from all of us, we’re so very sorry.
You are now undertaking the long journey through grief. While others may share that grief we all walk it alone. There are no right or wrong paths, no proper way to carry oneself, no set amount of time to complete it. Some steps will come easier than others. There will be rogue waves of grief that you won’t see coming, and knock you back days. But you will come through it. If you get lost let us know. We have been through it before and we might be able to help you find the way out.
Mum and I are so sorry to learn that Tilly has crossed her Bridge.
It is always sad to say goodbye to a beloved companion that was loved so much. Mum and I send hugs and comforting purrs.
I didn’t know Tilly but I know that decision, and how painful and difficult it is. God bless you for knowing what was best for her, and Godspeed, Tilly.
Very very sorry to hear about Tilly
