I read the DOTD today and was saddened to read of Scarlett and her Human Girls pain. I don't think that you can be consoled during this time, but it sure helps knowing that you have hugs and purrs coming your way. Please stop by and purrr for them.
About 7 years ago the Mr and Mrs has another little feline named Samantha. Samantha had been with the Mr and Mrs for 10 years. During the last year of sisfur's life she was getting 1 tablet a day for her thyroid and 1 insulin shot for her diabetes. Sisfur was only 13 when she crossed over to the Rainbow Bridge and I have overheard the Mr and Mrs talking about her.
It was such a painstaking decision that the Mrs had to make.....for the last 2 weeks of sisfurs life she had her favourite chair in the family room....she didn't get up to eat or drink so the Mrs would bring the food and water to sisfur and spoon feed her.....The Mrs slept downstairs on the pullout bed to be near.....you know the most amazing thing during this time....Sisfur still managed to jump down from the chair and use her litterbox....not once did she have an accident.....The Mrs made an appointment with the Dr.....then Sisfur would perk up and it looked like she was getting bettr so the Mrs cancelled the appointment. About 3 days after that cancelled appointment, the Mrs kept watching sisfur and realized the pain she was in and just couldn't keep her from crossing that bridge. The appointment was made for a Saturday morning, both the Mr and Mrs took little sisfur for her last car ride....it was such a sad sad day! The Mrs had had about 2 weeks to process the impending loss and say her goodbyes so she was rather stoic during the Dr's visit.....The poor Mr he was hit with a ton of bricks.........he just couldn't stop weeping when he had to say the final goodbye......
The Mr and Mrs brought little sisfur home and she was buried beside the Butterfly Bush in the back yard....
The Mrs has a scrapbook so I will sneak one of the photo's and post it to my page.....
