Fuzzychops.

The vet is coming today at about 3ish.

I don't want to see Tiger struggling. She's now not even interested in her morning egg and she can barely walk. I had a look online at what can happen in the very last stages of renal failure and while some cats slip away peacefully, many don't. They start having seizures and die of a heart attack, confused and hurt. I think I'd rather ensure a peaceful death than risk her going through that.

Exboi! is here and unilaterally decided to cancel what he was doing today in order to stick around, which was very thoughtful and means I'm being quietly occupied with a DVD (which it wouldn't occur to me to watch if I was alone) and offers of ice cream.

10B came over last night to say goodbye to her, and it was through talking to him that I realised today would be the right day and that my decisions are reasonable. As reasonable as they ever can be.

Oh honey, I'm so sorry. Enjoy your last hours with her.

Fuzzychops, run free over that rainbow bridge.

My niece just rang me to tell me that her best friend, her 14 y.o. dallie Loki earned his wings today and I've been sobbing away. Loved him so much - Loki has been her best friend for half of her life :(
Its turned in to a very sad day.

Goodbyes are never easy, but it sounds as though you've made a thoughtful and loving decision, with lots of support. Thinking of you and your Dear One, in these moments.

Love to you and Tiger. Yes, there is a time when you know that this is the right decision, however much it breaks the heart.
