Saying Goodbye Is So Hard

This is the other "love of my life" - if I'm sitting she's in my lap. She's not quite 2 years old. We've been giving her medications for over a year, but she's been getting worse - her condition is not curable. So, we have to put her to sleep tomorrow, and I felt I needed to say goodbye this way too......

Oh Ken, so sorry to hear that!!! Being new to the pet world I've come to realize how quickly you can become attached to them (as they do to you).

Two years is just too short a period of time! :frown:

I am sorry to hear of your imminent loss, Ken. We have been through the same and know how you feel.
Take some time to grieve and open your home to another. There are many out there that would be very fortunate to find a home with someone like you.

Sorry for you and your friend.

We are currently going through something similar with one of ours. He has instestinal lymphoma, and we actually drive 60 miles each way once per week for his treatment. Apprarently the best we can hope for is a year or two.

We don't expect anyone to understand why we would go to so much trouble.

But I suspect you would.

I'm so sorry for what you are facing. When the time comes, hold your kitty, whisper in her ear and make sure she can smell you. She'll pass on with love and peace. This is a very difficult time and I'm so sorry for your pain.

Ken, deepest sympathies. Last summer we had to put down our cat and dog within a month of each other - and both had been members of the family for more than seven years. I dont know who cried more, me or the kids. It's so hard.....

I am really sorry to hear this. I know it is a very difficult decision.

We have a 8 year old Lab. We have treated her as our first child and member of our family. I have given thought to the eventuality off late and do not know if I have the strength to make such a decision. However, in the interest of our loved ones sometimes it is right decision to take.

Our thoughts are with you and your family.

Ken,

Sorry to hear about your friend. A couple of years ago we had to put our 18 yr. old Cat "Puffy" to sleep. A few months after our Golden Retriever "Annie" had a tumor in her belly that burst and we had to put her down too. It was tough with Puffy, but he had 18 yrs., Annie was only 7 and it was a total shock. I couldn't go to work for two days after we put Annie to sleep.

I'll say a little prayer for you.

Sorry Ken. She is so adorable!

One thing I have learned with pets, the brightest and best seem to leave us before their time, leaving an indelible impression for a lifetime.

Kind Regards,

Brett
