Hi, I am also in Indiana but in NW part(Lowell about 1/2 hour from Merrillville & 1 hour from Chicago). This is a timely post as we had to put our cat to sleep 3 weeks ago. He was 17 years old but did not act like it. On Monday night, Oct 11, we think that he had a stroke & could not sit up,walk or anything so we took him to the vet on Tuesday. We knew what we had to do to do the best for him but it was not easy. We took him home & buried him in our back yard in my daylily bed in a box that he loved with his tissue paper in it & some of his special things.

I had gotten a 8 inch plastic cat at a garage sale this past summer & we painted it to look like him. We will put it in the bed next spring. I also plan to look for a large flat rock that I will paint his name & dates on & that will also go out there.

We miss him every day. He was very much loved. We will get another kitty when we are up to it as we miss having a cat in the house. It's so quiet.


We all need to help save our planet before it's too late
