This is very much 'off topic' and has nothing to do with diabetes.
I am very much a cat lover (non-cat lovers look away now, this is not for you!
) and belong to a cat lovers forum just like this one and post frequently on various topics.
Last week my daughter's 18 year old cat went missing and I thought she'd probably gone away to die (as they often do) - but I asked if anyone could suggest some words of comfort I could give to daughter and family and got some lovely answers in return.
The poor cat was sick, bless her, and on quite severe painkillers but (to my eyes) obviously dying so I'm not surprised this was happening.
I know I've had very generous help and advice from you on here, and I'm asking you what I should do about a member of the cat group who posted back a really cruel and abusive reply saying, basically, that owners of sick cats should be hung drawn and quartered for not getting their sick animals put down to save their suffering.
I can't understand why, after all the lovely encouraging replies, this one sticks in my mind! I truly find myself suddenly bringing it into my head when I'm dropping off to sleep. I'm now beginning to understand why teenagers get to thoughts of suicide from getting nasty messages on facebook.
Any hints on how I can toughen up, and stop letting this vicious person get under my skin like this?
I'm a strong 79 year old woman for goodness sake, not some emotional child!
