    Let him say goodbye to his cat. He's old enough to understand and he should be allowed to grieve and say goodbye. It will be hard, but you have done the right thing up until now keeping him aware of what is going on and letting him process it.

    Hugs to everyone.

    yes. the ability to escort them on their final journey and say a conscious farewell helps with acceptance.

    i am so sorry lisii. seraphim's urn and pawprint are lovely ideas to honor a pet.

    yall make me cry.

    jumbo hugs luv, and to the kitty and the boys. you gave him a life of joy and love.

    Sorry to hear this Agree that would be best. [QUOTE=Lisii;6815091]
    Do I just take the cat in and tell E that he passed away in his sleep? E's dad is in the country to visit next week, do I put him down then and just make it like he went quietly... I'm thinking this may be the best...

    Thank you all so much for your thought and words of wisdom, your responses touched my heart<3,

    Jack is back with us and is being super smoochy and adorable, I will suggest the paw print to E - I think it's a beautiful idea, he may even come up with some ideas for the "funeral" as E is very arty.

    Thank you all again, hugs back..
