I think it's important to share a kitty's story when he or she passes -- at other times too, of course, but particularly then. It gives the bereaved some closure, it celebrates the kitty's life and tells people just how unique that one little furball really was.
The listmom on another list -- some of you know Gesine -- thinks it's very important to tell a kitty its own story occasionally, and in times of crisis like illness or the kitty coming to the end of its time.

Thank you all for your kind words and to those who still struggle with sick kitties, I know how hard it is and how hopeful you all are. This board continues to help with an incredible wealth of very practical down to earth info... It was because of all of you that I knew instantly what the vet was saying when she said lymphoma. I knew the options and possibilities and could ask the right questions and could make an informed decision when I needed to. Romeo's story is not unique==I really posted it for all those who are just getting into the FELV world-for them to know that no matter what, its all worth it. I found myself smiling tonight as I thought about all those goofy things he did-I don't think he was ever allowed to be a kitten and he made up for it as he got older-he loved playing just like little kittens do. No matter the worry or the cost, giving him that opportunity was worth it whether he stayed 5 years or 5 months or 5 days.
