An agonizing photo of a pet owner’s adieu to her pet cat saddened social media users.

Reddit user abernha3 uploaded the picture a few days ago showing Andrew, their feline, holding his hand during the cat’s last car ride to the vet, where it was euthanized.


“He held our hands on his last trip to the vet. Little Andrew was much stronger than his mom and me,” abernha3 captioned the photo.

“Little Andrew was my junior. He was 15 and a half and loved everyone, but just got old and sick over the last year. He purred every day of his life and when he lost that, I knew it was time. Always sad to lose a friend. Sorry for everybody else’s losses as well,” he commented on the site.


A brigade of social media users and pet lovers sympathized and condoled with the owner. Most of them even narrated their painful parting with their deceased felines.

“May he purr forever in your heart,” one Reddit user said. Another user shared her experience putting her pet cat down, “I said goodbye to my cat about 8 months ago and I still miss her sometimes. I’m so sorry for your loss. Remember that you did the best you could to ease his passing from this life. He was on his way out either way, but this way, he got to spend his last moments peacefully with you.”
