    Thank you so much. I really needed that. Unfortunately, I've almost always been on the waited-too-long end of things. Always holding out hope for a miracle. That guilt is the WORST because you know they suffered longer than they needed to. This feels terrible but in a different way. Too soon? Did I rob him of more time? But the answer is no. His last few hours, he would not move from the bathroom. He was in so much pain that he could not stand up. I brought his food to him. He had to badly use the bathroom, but still didn't because the pain was so bad. I don't know how it happened that fast. Even at 2 a.m., he was walking around, scratching on his post, and jumped on the couch to sit next to me and was making biscuits on the blanket. That killed me because I thought how can I do this when he's still able to do these things? Around 4 a.m., it just went south. I think now he had one last hurrah. I didn't think of it at the time. I thought those were signs not to do it, but I really think it was him saying goodbye to his life.

    I really hope you have more time with your baby. I know it's never enough time! I would have loved if Ollie made it to 16 or even 14 or 15, but i still would have wanted 40 more years. It sounds like you're listening to your cat and truly doing what's best for her. It's hard especially when there is a theoretical treatment, but you know your cat would not cope well with either the process or the aftermath. I want to hug you and your girl.

    Thank you!


    I am convinced that you did it at just the right time! It'd just so damn hard to wade through the grief process.

    It is I know there is no other option, but it's so unfair we have to make the choice and without them getting a voice.

    I am definitely not adjusting well to no cat love. I've NEVER been without the love and companionship of a cat. Usually multiple cats at my side at the same time. This is killing me.
