    Mrs Cone reacted to Van Wolfie in Pets   
    We have 2 ragdoll cats.
    One is now just a year old and behaves like a kitten still, with its mad running and jumping everywhere and general playfulness - which has been (not surprisingly) massively un-appreciated by the old one, who is around 15 years old, deaf and recently also become partially sighted. You can imagine how much she loves being jumped on from all angles and had taken to hiding in the spare room wardrobe pretty much all of the time, to get some peace.
    Until a couple of weeks ago, when they went to a cattery for 3 days while we went camping.
    They now appear to be pretty much inseparable. Sleeping together and grooming each other. Sharing food etc.
    I have no idea what went on while we were away - it wasn't even their first time at the cattery - but they appear to have come back as besties.

    Unfortunately I can see how that could happen.
    Must feel like bloody hell 'why us'...but for you all the pressure must be unbearable at times and everyone has their limits.
    As always I can't even begin to imagine how tough this must be to talk about. Best wishes. Glad he is doing ok, you are all gonna keep needing each other.

    Sorry to hear this John... but I can’t say it came as a complete surprise!  From the snippets I’ve read (I “came in late” and haven’t read every word of this thread) your whole family has had a hell of a lot to contend with, so one of you getting to such a desperate stage, and making such a grim decision is “almost understandable”.
    What Josh did is not something I have ever considered doing myself, but I do have experience of going through what you have, as a father. 
    My youngest boy also attempted such an ending 3 years ago, albeit at an older age (early 30s) and for different reasons (which I most certainly won’t go into detail on these pages, suffice to say it all related to being involved in Afghanistan, and the horrors of being “Up close and personal” with modern day warfare!”
    Fortunately, my son’s attempt also “failed”, and I’m naturally chuffed to say he’s now well on the road to recovery (after excellent work by the respective experts, and a good dose of family unity) having now taken a different direction in life, and currently lapping up the bachelor lifestyle on the Cornish coast building boats!  It’s fair to say that it appears he’s currently happier than Larry!
    As a father, I daren’t ever say it’s a happy ending, as there’s always a casting glance to check he’s ok, and there’s always the element of worry, (as there always is with our own kids) but after 7 years since “the trigger”, and only 3 since it all came to light (with his attempt to take his own life), things are certainly looking up. 
    I appreciate your (family’s) problems are still very much present, and not past, so there may well still be a long and winding road to trudge along, and you’re gonna have to keep a keen eye on all your brood, (but you don’t need me to tell you that!)
    But there is hope. Things can and do get better, even if at times, things appear utterly hopeless. I also fully appreciate that, at times, it feels like we, as fathers, feel like complete failures!  That’s not the case, of course, but even we can have doubts at such trying times!
    First and foremost, I wish young Joel the best of health, and a final “All clear” on his illness. The sooner the better. Secondly, I wish Josh the strength and courage to help his brother through it all, whilst staying strong in himself. 
    Finally, and probably most qualified of all, I wish you and Lynne, as ever-worrying parents, the patience, strength, and determination to hold things together, keeping the family strong and together as one. 
    I truly believe that that alone is the key to facing and overcoming these demons. Family bonds are stronger than they can sometimes appear!
    All the best, buddy... stay strong, and don’t let go of that hope!

    So, all give your pets an extra fuss, and if they look confused, tell them it’s from Mostyn. 
    I was peacefully doing my ironing about an hour or so ago, by the window, that overlooks a busy Grampian Way in Sinfin. I heard a thud, instinctively looked out of the window to witness a dog running into moving traffic. 
    Suffice to say I’ve shed tears a few times since seeing it. The car behind stopped, and the absolute gentleman driving it tried what he could and showed genuine love for the dog he probably didn’t know. 
    After he carried it off the road and gently placed it on the lawn beside the road, the owner appeared with the lead in her hand, witnessing her reaction will live with me for a very long time, as will seeing the driver, totally blameless, who hit the dog, but stopped around the corner as his kids were in the car. 
    After about ten minutes, the lady owner said goodbye to her dog before collapsing trying to lift the dog wrapped in a blanket, before being pulled away by someone, and the real true gentleman, who i dont know, but admire greatly, gently wrapped the dog a bit more snugly in the blanket and carried it to a car. 
    Owner and driver totally inconsolable. A lovely dog gone just like that. 🥺😞
