Default I am so sad...

Last Thursday we took our oldest cat, Bob, to the vet to treat what I thought was conjunctivitis. They held her for surgery to do a biopsy. We found out today she has cancer, it is advanced. The tumour is right behind her eye, which is what was causing the redness.
I'm very sad. I've had Bob since I was in college...she is almost 17. I know she's had a good life, but it is heartbreaking to know we will have to euthanize her this week.
Thanks for listening.

Aging and sick pets are really hard. You just want to protect them. I am thinking of you and your kitty.

Thank you so much.
My DH came home from work early today. We will spend the evening with her then bring her in tomorrow. It's a very difficult thing to do, but i do not want her in pain.
Thanks for everyone's warm wishes.

I'm so glad your DH could come home early so you all could spend some special time with Bob.

We will be thinking of you. . . .

Default So Sad

We had a cat for 18yrs. and had to have him put asleep this past yr. It was very hard but knew it was the right thing to do as he wasn't eating and was down to four pounds. We miss him as he was part of our family for such a long time.

Michelle,
I am so sorry! We lost our kitty of 18 years two weeks ago on Monday night. I knew it was coming, but it was still hard to hold her and tell her goodbye. She tried to talk to me just before she passed. I feel your pain. The only thing that makes it ok, is knowing that she feels better.

Oh, Lesa, that is so sad. It's a double edged sword, isn't it? we love them, but when we lose them it's just so painful!

I'm so sorry! I've been there too. Just take comfort in the fact that your baby knows that she is loved and that you are doing the right thing for her.

So sorry to hear your news. Our pets become so much a part of our family that it truly is hard to realize that the best thing for them is to end their suffering. I am sure that 17 years of being in your family was a wonderful life for your cat and you should take comfort in knowing that you made his life a happy one. Thinking of you, don't be sad, the passage of time will help!

My heart goes out to you. After 15 years, I too had to have my black furbaby Phil put to sleep just 5 days ago.

It is really hard to do & I am still having a hard time dealing with it, but I do have a little peace knowing that he is in a Happy place.

My thoughts are with you.

It is so hard to let them go. We lost our beloved Senji last October at the age of 17 and it was so hard. Just love Bob and let her feel the love. She will be waiting for you in a peaceful and happy place. Maybe she will hang out a bit with my Senji and with Phil and all of the other SCS furbabies on the other side. It sounds like she has had a wonderful life with you. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Hugs, Kim
