    Well guy's I am finally having to make the hard choice again. Goldy, our special 24 year old had reached the point we all hate to see.

    She has lost a lot of weight and muscle tone, several teeth and is now unable to groom herself and her coat is very matted and dirty. She was always fastidious about being clean, even on rainy days where it was muddy outside. She would have a spotless coat and made sure the other cats were clean as well. Her arthritis has gotten to the point where any contact except on her head hurts her. The last few nights she has climbed up in our bed and slept close to me but cries when we pet her. She eats like a horse but it isn't doing her any good as she is still dropping weight.

    She has been a joy and I can't allow her to suffer. We will have to see the vet in the morning.

    I'm having a hard time typing this as my eyes seem to have too much fluid right now. I'm going to fix her favorite breakfast [sweet rice] in the morning and take her in.

    walkin man,
    I have read quite a few of your posts and I feel for you.
    Later tonight, I will say a few words for you and yours.

    I'm sorry you have to take that walk with her tomorrow. I seem to have a bit too much fluid in my eyes now too. I hope you will take some last photos of her for yourself.
