Oh Pamzi!! I'm so sorry to hear that you had to put your cat down.. That is so heartbreaking! We had to put our dog down - two years ago - on our 25th anniversary - of all days. He was 15, and having his second bout with pancreatitis. He was just so sick we could not let him suffer any longer. I know it's a heartbreaker to have to put your furbaby to sleep. So sorry. How will Brandon react? Will he be upset - or is he indifferent to her?
18 years is a good long life for a kitty - but I know that does not help things at all. So sorry Pamzi!!!
