    Default Thanks to everyone who had some kind words for my kitty!

    I just wanted everyone to know that I really appreciate your concerns for me and my kitty. My baby is in Kitty Heaven now and I really hope that I made the right decision. I'm still pretty upset about it and the guilt is absolutely overwhelming. I just hope he knew that I loved him. I just feel like he didn't understand what was going on. He was purring and cuddling with me when I went to see him. It just seemed like he didn't know anything other than he was in a scary place with lots of other animals.

    Just so you know, the vet said there wasn't much they could do for him. Yeah, he seemed "okay" for right now but she said it was just going to go downhill from there. She said if they removed the tumor, it would most likely grow back within 3-6 months. She said she's never had a case where that didn't happen and she also said there was a high chance that it would spread to other parts of his body. So why put him through all that just so we could squeeze a few more months out of him? It just didn't seem fair. And the problem with not removing the tumor, she said, was that it would never heal over. She said the tumor had stretched the skin so much that it was just going to keep splitting open and oozing everywhere. We'd have to keep him locked up in the laundry room for the rest of his life and that didn't seem very fair either. I just really, really hope that this was the right decision... although at the moment it doesn't seem like it is.

    I am so sorry bRs. I think you made the right decision. It wouldn't be fair to keep him locked in the laundry room with an open wound for the last days/weeks of his life.

    My thoughts are with you.

    I keep trying to tell myself that, but I still feel really guilty and awful about it. It just seemed like he didn't understand. And when the vet took him from me after I had spent some time with him, my heart just sank. Last I saw him was when they sat him on the table in the other room and he was just looking around at them... then they shut the door.

    I am so sorry to hear that bRs. I definitely think you made the right decision. He would have suffered either way and even though it was hard for your, you thought more about him.

    It's always sad for us when we have to let a furry friend go, but we don't want them to suffer needlessly. It was the right thing to do for your kitty- living in one room with wounds that could never heal would be no life for him/her. Kitty is at peace now.

    You did the right thing. Your kitty is not suffering anymore and it takes a lot of courage to do that.

    I am so sorry BrS that you're going through this. I know how hard it is.
    I do think you made the right decision, and I think you are very brave for making
    that decision. I'm sure your kitty had a wonderful life with you.

    I woke up this morning and there wasn't any meowing. He'd usually be meowing downstairs once he heard someone up and walking around.

    I just feel like I betrayed him somehow. It's not like he was lying there clinging to life. He was purring and rubbing his head on my face. And I could tell he wanted me to take him home.

    And his hair is still on everything. That was what always annoyed Mr BRS when it came to the cat. He would shed all over everything, in fact, I've never seen a short haired cat shed as much as he did. And believe me, we tried everything... shampoos, different foods, supplements, etc. I even bought him one of those Furminator brushes.

    Aw, bRs, I'm so sorry. I know it is hard to accept now, but you did do the right thing.

    I remember having to put down my first cat. He had a disease and was just getting sicker and sicker. It was so hard to put him and I felt just terrible having to do so. But it really was the right thing to do.

    Take your time to grieve. Loosing a pet is so hard. *Hugs*

    I'm so sorry you lost your baby. I know how hard it is to lose a pet. They are definitely family. Just know that he knew you loved him and now he isn't in pain.
    I would change vets though. Them not letting you back with him when they euthenized him is a big no no to me. We were with an awesome vet here who pulled the same thing. I picked up my kitty and went to another vet, who we have now been with for a long time. Our babies are family. They need to see us last thing as they fall asleep, not a tech, no matter how sweet the tech is.
