I had to say goodbye to one of my fur babies today!
« on: December 02, 2019, 10:51:45 pm »
 :crybaby2: I had to put my female cat Splat to sleep today. She stopped eating & losing weight within a few months had me bringing her to the vet. Her lab test results showed she was in kidney failure. Even after treatment her cretin #'s was still too high for any hope of her surviving any kind of treatment. I decided it would be best to put her to sleep instead of being selfish & keeping her with me watching her die slowly & probably painfully. She never showed if she was hurt or in pain. Cat's are like that, the don't show pain or hurt when they are. I went to the vet hospital & took my other cat shadow  so he could say goodbye to Splat. The wait was long because there were 3 emergencies going on at the time. I was shocked when the Vet doc. injected her with a sleep injection. In seconds she was asleep, then the Vet injected her with the serum in which would stop her heart in seconds. She died in my arms. Shadow peed on the grieving couch. I guess that was his way of saying goodbye. Splat,Splat, super brat Oh my goodness you're a Cat! Goodbye Splat! I love you always baby girl kitty! :crybaby2:

My heart goes out to you. Our fur babies can wiggle their way into our hearts forever.

Sorry for you loss!  Have had to have send 2 dogs to heaven in the past and dread the thought of going thru it again but I have two more dogs.  After they are gone I said no more even though I love them.

I am so very sorry for your loss.  These are not just pets but part of our family.  Unfortunately kidney disease/failure is common in cats.  You are a good pet owner you did your best to help her, but in the end you didn't let her suffer.  Again. I'm so sorry.

This is such a difficult thing to do with a beloved pet.  I definitely feel for you.  An acquaintance just recently came home and their German Shepherd which was only 8 years old looked like it had just laid down and died.  They were heartbroken too as I am sure you are.  I'm sorry your friend is gone!

Special prayers for comfort.  It is so hard to have to put down a fur baby.  They become such a part of the family.
Have a wonderful day!

So sorry for your loss. I know how it feels to have an animal that you get very attached to and then you lose them for some reason or another, it hurts so bad. Always know that they are with The Lord Our Father.

Awww, I am so sorry.   :( I'm literally in tears right now.  I understand just how painful it is to lose a beloved pet.  Sometimes I cry over the pets I've lost years ago.  It doesn't matter how long they've been gone, they are always a part of me. 

You are to be commended for making a kind decision in that Splat did not suffer.  As hard as it is to put our babied to sleep, it's harder when they suffer.  Please give Shadow a big hug from me.   :cat:

Putting your animal family members to sleep is one of the most horrible things to go through.  I had to put my little dog to sleep that is in my profile picture several months ago she was my best friend.  And our two elderly cats are on borrowed time I know and I dread it happening.  Well peace and comfort friend.

We know all too well how it hurts when we lose a pet.

I am not sure we can own another dog cos of the heartbreak we had 15 months ago.

But i have found out when you are still involved in helping pets and owners you still get this gratifying feeling that helps with your loss from the past.And if you wind up owning again you will probably know thats what you wanted....and if you dont you are still involved and ready for action to help pets and owners from the love you have for Gods creatures.

I'm sorry for the loss of your fur baby, Splat.  It must have been so hard for you to hold her, but I think it was better for her to have you with her the whole time.  I've heard some people just say good-bye then leave their pet with the vet.

I love my two cats Daisy and Cookie like they're my real daughters and cherish every moment with them! My Daisy is 13 and is losing weight due to loss of protein in her urine and probably only has a few years left if I'm real lucky. I dread the day I have to suffer like you are now but I firmly believe in Heaven and that we will all be reunited with our loved ones both two legged and four legged and never parted again there after. Splat is not really gone she's just in a better place! :heart:

I'm so sorry for your loss.  My daughter's cat got outside and a dog had her cornered under a car.  The dog did something to him because he was hurt and never got better.  He died about a week after this happened.
