Well, I told you to stay tuned

My friend and I talked, and we decided together that our dear diabetic kitty’s suffering must come to an end.  Unfortunately, both the cost and commitment of treating her disease are too high for us to pay.

Poor cat cannot walk normally, and when she sits down, her back legs slide out.  She tries to bring them back in, and she ends up thumping them on the floor like a rabbit.  That can’t feel good.

She is hungry all day.  She’s been eating regular senior cat food, which is full of carbohydrates that her body can’t even use for energy.  Her large water dish has to be filled a couple of times a day, and her litter box…

Oh, her litter box!

I want to gag, just thinking about it.

So, Friday is the day.  I will take her in, and I will cry.  But I am glad her discomfort will be over.

that is very sad, but I agree that is the right decision.

I’m sorry you have to go through this.

Not the best day ever… But I know we did the right thing. I never expect it to be so hard to say goodbye to a pet, but it always is. Thanks, all, for the support! It really does help.

On goes life.
