My Heart is Breaking

my sweet little Dusty is not going to make it. Last night he wasn't eatting much and was softly meowing. Today he ate even less so I called the vet. His system is failing so DH and I have decided to put him down Saturday morning. He is sleeping by my feet at the moment and looks so small and frail.

I will miss my "little one" but I know that when he closes his eyes for the last he will know how much we love him and he will join his brother EKO at Rainbow Bridge.

Oh, SamKaren, that is so sad to hear, but know you are doing the right thing. I so regret not doing so with one of my cats.....saddens me yet that I didn't let her go when she was so ill.

I am so sorry. I know how much you love Dusty, but sometimes it's more loving to say goodbye. And Dusty will be delighted to once again be with Eko.

thanks everyone.
He just drank a big bowl of water and did use his literbox. I had to help him to it as his legs aren't strong anymore. I put him on my lap and he fell asleep for a half hour. Right now he is sleeping on my chair...his little head is tucked under his paw. I hope he is dreaming of EKO.

((Samkaren)) Hard as it will be tomorrow, just remember you are doing what's best for your cat. We can't possibly know how much pain they are in and they depend on us to make the right choice.

Samkaren, we had to do that a couple of weeks ago with our special girl of 18 years. We tried to keep her home and let it happen naturally and that was a mistake~~she seemed fine some days, others not it was sad, we should have done it earlier we will always regret not doing it in a timely manner.

Peace to Dusty


 o
RE: My Heart is Breaking

Karen, you and your husband and Dusty are in my heart and prayers. We will all be with you tomorrow as you let Dusty go to the Rainbow Bridge.


 o
RE: My Heart is Breaking

Thank you for the kind words. This morning dh said ...maybe we can wait until Monday and we can spend a few more days with him. I told him that he was thinking with his heart and it wasn't fair to dusty. He saw my point and realized he just wanted a little more time.

Will post sometime Saturday
