    This applys to cats too.

    Someday you'll be together again.

    The sting of loss only highlights how much they mean to us. Soon it will settle into sweet memories.

    All the best.

    15 to 17 is near the end of a housecat's normal life span.

    Time to find a gravesite and get ready for the unavoidable and inevitable.

    Then you will need to get a new kitty.

    I don't think the seizures hurt or cause the cat pain.

    So I would not euthanize.

    I would let the kitty just live out his life.

    My cat recently got bitten by another cat and lost a dime sized spot of fur off his cheek. I took him to the cat hospital where they gave him an antibiotic shot. Then I got a cone for him (modified a Chihuahua cone by trimming it down with scissors) and put Neosporin on the wound.

    It healed nicely in 2 weeks and now it is scarred -- furless.

    So he got over it.

    My threshold of pain for $$ is $500. That is usually the cost of an overnight stay with treatment in a pet hospital.

    Rabbits live around 10 years in captivity. These are perfect pets for little kids. They cannot bite or scratch.

    I caught my own rabbit when I was 7 years old, but my dad let it go one day when she was fully grown at 3 months old. He did not believe in keeping wild pets. My feeling on that was that it was my rabbit not his, so he should have kept his hands off it.

    After a pet rabbit, a child is about 14 or so years old and therefore responsible enough to have a cat pet.

    Cats can live up to 20 years.

    So 1 rabbit plus 4 cats is the normal lifespan of a human.

    Humans were not meant to live alone.
