This is Lako. Last night he suddenly took ill. I lifted him but he died within a minutes .He would have been 19 in February and and came to me when he was 7 weeks old A long time ago. He was a real friend and followed me everywhere,more like a small dog. He will be buried in a corner of the garden where he loved to lie in the sun I will miss him sorely... Yesterday was a very sad, bad day. Many will say he was only a Cat. He was but he was an adorable gentle one....

Oh Alvar I am so sorry. He was not just a cat - he was YOUR cat and I am sure he was happy to be that for almost 19 years. It is right that we are sad when our pets leave us because it shows we care. This is a very fitting tribute to him. Louise

I agree with Louise. Laco is so very much like my dear Soss who died over 2 years ago and I still love and miss him very much. Animals are more than pets, they are family. My thoughts are with you at this sad time. In the next few days I'm uploading an image of my friend's dog Jay who was killed on Tuesday. Not a good start to the new year for us is it? Take care Viki

How very sad, Alvar, losing a pet is like losing a child, and you will miss him like crazy. But he is in feline heaven now, looking down on you, and he is at peace. Gone, but never forgotten. Carol

So sorry to hear about Lako. I know exactly how you feel having loved and lost pets before. You were so lucky to have had him with you for so long and I'm sure you have many happy memories of him.

It's a hard price we pet lovers pay when one of them dies. A lovely image of your feline friend and such a soulful look too. You can at least be thankful for him that he left this world so swiftly and not after weeks or months of suffering. A little corner of a family garden sounds a perfect place to be!

Alvar, I am SO sorry - Lako wasn't just a cat, he was part of your family. And 19 years is a long friendship. I know how badly you feel, having been through it like those above, but what a blessing for Lako to have had a wonderful home for so long with lots of love and caring.

It is terribly sad to lose an animal. Have lost 4 cats and a dog. They make up a big part of your family. However I am sure that he had a happy, loving home for all of his life. I hope this lovely portrait will serve as a reminder of the happy times you spent with him. Take care. Moira

Alvar I am so sorry to hear that sad news... Looks just like my old cat fluffy who also lived to a similar age, my fluff was I'll fir a little while and ended up being put to sleep so he suffered no more... Years on and I still miss him. Have 3 beautiful cats now, but he still lives on...

This is a gorgeous photo, he was a beauty, and it's nice to have a lovely shot like this and black cats are not the easiest of subjects....

My thoughts are with you x x x
