Miss Vega O’Mega: 1999 – 2008

It is a sad evening here in Dublin. We arrived home this evening, and immediately knew something wasn’t right as Vega is usually there to pounce on us with love and affection when we walk in the door. Christine found her splayed on the floor in our bedroom, eyes open, body rigid, and a small puddle of pee. We have no idea how she died, as she seemed very healthy. Perhaps she got poisoned when roaming the neighborhood. Or maybe she simply had a heart attack — she would get really amazingly worked up when seeing another cat in our yard through the window. We got in a bunch of crying and then drove her to a local vet for cremation.

I’ll miss you vega. Thanks for 8 wonderful years of snuggles.

    I feel awful for you, buddy. You know how devastated i was when Xor died. I knew what was going to happen, and why, and i was able to hold him as he passed. This must be so hard, not knowing exactly what happened.

    I’m still stunned, since there were no signs of any problems with her this morning.

    In time, we will reminisce about the many many laughs she brought into our lives.

    Obviously my heart breaks for you. I am so sorry. She’s a member of the family. Hugs and sympathy.

    Jeepers, that’s a loss for both you and Christine. Both of us are saddened by the news. We had such a great and often interesting time with Vega. She’s was a fine, quirky, lovable, sweet friend for you two.

    We were so sorry to hear about Vega. It must have been just dreadful finding her the way that you did. We are so sad for you both. Vega was so full of fun and excitement and we know you will miss her presence in your everyday lives. Our pets are vital members of our families and we love them dearly. With much love and understanding, we’ll be thinking of you both.

    Hello Aaron,

    Sorry about your cat. I can definitely relate as I lost two dogs between Oct and Nov 07. All 4 of my dogs gone now and still really down about it, but still have AllieCat who I bottle fed as a 10 day old abandoned kitten, now going on 6 years come May.

    Anywaze….can’t find your “Contact Us” link so..send me an email as I’d like to discuss a Cron-O-Meter matter with you.
