I debated whether or not I should blog my feelings. But then I decided it might help to be able to express my sorrow. I am extremely sad as yesterday we had to have our 18 year old cat put to sleep. She had chronic kidney disease and there is no cure. She had stopped eating and was very weak. She would only drink water or the juice from a can of tuna. I opened many cans....so we will be having tuna for supper/ lunch for several days. She was losing control of her hind quarters and was having trouble walking. She still tried to get to her litter box.
I know my kitty could not survive. Her name was Seven - my son named her after a Seinfeld episode. The vet came to our home. I had hoped that she would go peacefully. Unfortunately, she resisted and my heart was breaking. Our vet was so kind and loving as he tried to help her.....I don't want to go into details, but it just was very distressing.....my husband cried like a baby.
Today I packed up all her toys, bowls, scrathing boxes, food, bed, travel carrier, etc and will donate it to an animal shelter. Of course I cried some more.
I know my sorrow will lessen in time. But right now, my heart is breaking.
