I didn't need this right now. tom.
I saw a sentiment- I think on here- something to the effect of the heartbreak of putting down a loved pet is the price we must pay for the happiness, joy and fulfillment they bring us while they are alive.
That is wonderful and sad.
You're killing me. Smokey in here suddenly.
Dammit, why'd I click that.
Very, very touching indeed!
That is one of the saddest thing that I have ever read. Rizzo summed it up about right.
I battling the exact same thing with my beloved Keekat of almost 17 years.
Almost put her down yesterday. Elected for fluids and bringing her home for a day or two.
Last night was the absolute worse. She slept for twelve ours straight and whined when handled in a total funk. I almost took her last night. Cried like a baby. Figured to wait until this morning. Stayed up 'til 4am hoping she would pee. Knowing if I fell asleep I'd awaken only to pack her up for the final vet visit.
Woke up at 6;30 with my other cat Fatty raising kane as usual. Found Annie bright and alert and doing her usual escape tactics. WTF? Thank you Fatty!
She had peed while I slept. No longer puking she kept her food down.
Overall a good day today. Spent time in her favorite window and molested me in the bed purring and love mode.
Went out to eat with friends and came back with her greeting me at the door, breaking up another Fatty vs Annie hide and seek game.
Eating and drinking and walking around.
Going forward, Monday will be a big day. Another vet visit and urine and blood tests. They said we could keep her hydrated every couple days (akin to dialysis). Just depends on the quality of life question.
Keep Annie Belle in your prayers. Fingers crossed... this is my baby but I wont let her suffer.
I knew this was about dogs without even clicking on it. But I tried to get through it without crying. Failed.
Prayers for your kitty.
I lost my little monster last year, still tough.
I cried so much last night over my cat, there are no tears left. I believe they are in heaven waiting on us.
Cats and dogs as loyal, loving companions are God's greatest gift to us.
He got this one right.
DAMMIT, why the hell did I click on that link? I had a very similar experience with my cat and it ripped out my heart, and I cried all the way home. Whatever moron says that pets are just animals has never known the absolute joy of a loving pet. As I write this, my two cats are hogging my bed (as they usually do). I gotta go give them some love now.
I..........can't watch that. I started to but I can't finish when I know the ending.
My best boy is going on 19 in a month or two and I can't show him enough love as much as I try. It's always too little.
I doubt I will get another, since it will probably mean my dog will have to do without me. I couldn't do that to as good a friend as my animals have been. I'm going to learn to be alone.
I don't fear my death at all. His, scares the hell out of me.
