I feel sick just thinking about it, my brother was in Halo that night.
A bit selfish to think that maybe, but its made it REALLY hit home like a sledge hammer.


Not at all. I was at Rescue Rooms that night, and I kept thinking that if some of my friends had left at the wrong time, they might have got caught up in it.

It's awful though isnt it? It really hit home with me too.

What happened?


He got beaten up outside a nightclub in Nottingham, and died of head injuries. He was only 19.

Thanks guys. She was fine and came into my room to remind me to do her dinner at 4pm, but I was on the computer doing something so she wandered out and into the livingroom and curled up. At 4:15pm I went to do her dinner and normally she appears in the kitchen without me calling her but she didnt. So I went into the livingroom and found her curled up, she didnt seem interested and then she tried to walk, but ended up dragging herself as her back legs wouldnt work. I called mum + nan and they immediately took her to the vet. The vet said that she had a blood clot that had run down to the bottom of the spinal cord and the clot broke into two and travelled into her two back legs which caused them to become paralysed. Its really heartbreaking because all this happened so rapidly that it wasnt possible to prevent it. Nan said that she passed away quite quickly - Just as they took out the needle from her leg her head laid down on the table and she seemed to go at that moment.

I think the speed of it is what has hit me because she was fine and then 20mins later she was critically ill and by 5:25pm or so she was being put to sleep. I keep expecting her to walk into my room and start miowing, reminding me to do her nightly cat biscuit. She always did that daily, meet me in the morning when I got up because she wanted cat biscuit, then comes to find me at 4pm to get me to do her dinner and then finds me at 10pm for some more cat biscuit. I'm gonna miss all that. Waking up tomorrow wont be the same. At the moment I just have spells of feeling not to bad and then wanting to cry. Normal I guess. :cry: Our dog seems to really miss her too. When mum and nan brought her home we had her wrapped in a nice, warm and thick towl and Peppy (our dog) went over and kissed her. Hes been wandering in and out of all the rooms this evening so he obviously is having a hard time dealing with it just like we are.

Thanks very much for the sympathy guys. Its 4pm and now shes normally in here miowing reminding me its dinner time. Seems so out of place not hearing her reminding me what time it is. So now i've only got to do my dogs dinner. Even he seems quite down today.

It just doesnt seem real. I keep expecting her to walk in.

Sorry to hear of your bad news Captain-Flynn.

When my dog got put to sleep I think my dad cried for almost a week. My dad NEVER cries.
A hug is a great gift, one size fits all.

Thankyou, dipsydoodlenoodle. I can understand why your dad was so upset.
And today we took our dog to the vet as he was unwell this morning and hes been diagnosed with prostrate cancer. He was given two injections and we have to monitor him over the next 2 days and see how he goes. :(

Oh dear, Captain :( What bad timing :(

What is his prognosis? I know that sort of cancer is not usually too serious in male humans.

Its somewhat confusing. He gave Peppy (our dog) two injections and we have to monitor him over the next two days.. If he still isnt right we have to take him back to the vet.

he asked if peppy had lost any weight and we said he hadnt. He examined Peppy and said that there was a lump down there but stated that it could of been there for a while already and therefore we may have him for a few more years, but alternatively we may not. Its just a 'dont know' situation regarding as to whether we will have Peppy for much longer. As our dog is going on 14 the vet said they wont castrate him which would of been normal precedure if he had been younger. He also said our cat passing away may also of kick started Peppy in to being ill too, which seems plausible as he has been pretty sad since.

So we're not too sure really, he could swing either way, but overall he has a 'cancer' and thats always dangerous and worrying.
