I had to put my cat asleep so not having a good day at all didn't have cat insurance and it was costing me 500 a day so i had to do what was best for him and he was really sick so he would of had to stay longer anyway for treatment etc going to find me another cat as of today. I took pics of him thank god when he was home with me as well so i can look his pics when i want to:(
I had to put my Spats down a year ago and it still haunts me. It was the worst decision I ever had to make. I know that you loved you cat very much and that you agonized over your decision. I'll tell you what my friend told me, As much as you loved him YOU are the only person who could make that decision. Knowing how much you loved him you didn't make that choice one moment too soon or too late.I feel for you. Let yourself grieve and don't feel guilty about it, especially if people tell you to get over it because it was just a cat. Be kind to yourself. Sherry
it's a sad day for me too....yesterday I had to have my Sylvester put to sleep so I know exactly how you feel. My baby was 14 yrs old. He was loosing weight. He was almost 15 lbs and I noticed he wasn't eating anything. Then he started sneezing and I thought ok, this is a upper respitory infection which we know all cats get from time to time. Took him to the vet and gave him some medicine but he wasn't getting better, still wasn't eating anything. He did drink a lot of water. So he was getting worse and took him back. They did blood work, he had kidney failure and all his blood levels were high including sugar. So it was the end. He was suffering. I spent one last day with him and took him yesterday. It was awful. I stayed with him til the end and have cried myself to death. Today, my daughter called me this morning. She found a breeder and put a deposit on 2 ragdoll kittens for me. It's her present to me...she just sent pictures and they are just precious. I'll get them in April. I can't wait. How can there be people out there who do not like cats or animals for that fact when they are the best thing God gave to us....I love 'em to death. So cheer up and you'll be like me and find that perfect cat. He or she won't replace the one you lost like mine but they will be a new cat chapter in our lives....good luck to you...
It is a very hard decision to make, if the quality of life is no longer.......just remember, putting them to sleep is the "Last act of LOVE" we can do for them. I lost a wonderful Maine Coone one year ago, and I still cry for him.
