Just had my cat put to sleep.
« on: November 24, 2018, 09:21:31 PM »
She'd not been well for a few weeks. Had lots of tests done. Thought it was her heart. Turned out she had a tumour blocking her food pipe. Just took my kids to say goodbye to her at the vet.

Sorry if I've been a bit touchy the week.

Sorry to heart that, Rhi: we've been there too, and it is a sore one and also upsetting for the kids.

Sympathies from me, I find this quite ghastly, I mean pets dying.

Just seen this, Rhi. I hope I understand. I know I was an emotional wreck when we took our 15 year old dog to the vets for the last time, some years ago.

Thank you, We’re just getting ready to bury her. Got a little wild holly bush to plant.

She was 15 too. We were her second chance. Had her since she was 7. Taught us so much. She wasn't affectionate and she didn't like handling. But she was so loved and my kids learned that if you have an animal then you accept them as they are and not how you want them to be.

Oh Rhi so sorry, particularly sorry didn't see before. It's awful isn't it? Lots of hugs.  Been there, it's so sad.

It's ok, Robbie. Sad for my kids more than anything. On Saturday afternoon it looked like she was coming home so my son and I went online and bought her a little heated pad to sleep on because the vet said she had been dozing comfortably on one in the hospital. It arrived today. I mean, knowing her she'd have ignored it anyway.

Sorry for your loss. It's funny just how important pets can become to us. I never thought of myself as a pet person, that is until I met my ex and her cat.

When animals we love die, it is a sad time for all.  The children especially feel these things. Praying all heal soon.
