|Sorry if have put this on wrong board,didn't want to put this on the WITTSG board because am refusing to believe this is happening.
and,sorry for long post...always end up doing this.
Yesterday morning [friday],Smudge:
was given the final gift of life and was PTS,she was seventeen [nineteen in profile as her vet said on friday her real age],her human and some staff went with her [we live in a residential home].
The day before she had been diagnosed as having advanced kidney failiure and anaemia.
Am not her real human,and have only known her for just over a year since moving in,but had grown a strong friendship with her.
Am autistic and struggle to understand death,it doesn't feel like she is dead-only not seeing her outside the home,wasn't allowed to go,to go through the process of seeing and feeling her after she had been PTS which is the only way am able to understand a death though it really explodes with shockwaves having to watch it.
So this happening is one thing,but when support staff drove am to stay at mums/dads for the weekend as usual,they said they had some bad news to tell-that Sams' got quite advanced cancer and it cannot be operated on>sams profile:
Why this now? she was diagnosed the day before Smudge and they even share the same vet lady.
In her younger years,Sam has fought cancer a few times and won,she's also had non cancerous growths unremoveable-one on her head and one on her chin,she had severe diabetes which was uncontrollable for a while as well as neuropathy in her back legs from the diabetes-yet none of those got her PTS,she's about the same age as Smudge,and have been owned by her since she was a kitten.
Is cancer genetic?
her sister-Blackie [no profile,she died before joined catster] died at thirteen from being PTS due to cancer though there's a photo of her with Sam in Sams profile.
They're saying it's a matter of weeks or less when she will have to go,wish her tumour could be operated on,wish age wasn't a risk to stop her from having the removal,it's not fair on her having gone through so much with diabetes then to get this.
How does this fate happen to two beautiful unrelated cats around the same day?
does anyone recommend taking Sam for some Reiki sessions [think have spelt that right?] am know of a good place nearby that does kitty reiki and wanted to get Blackie it but she died before knew this other place existed.
Am know the lady that does it,she is very good with animals and used to work for the RSPCA,but have no idea whether it would be of any relief to Sam or not.
Though am not the mum of Sam,sister isn't that bothered with her anymore as she has younger furr-children,so am willing to pay for all the sessions if it would do her any good.
Emma [well it isn't GFB,he can't type].
