|I am so very sorry. I wish there was a magical word or phrase that would take away your pain. I, too, was filled with immense quilt after I made the decision to have Jackson euthanized. Even after the vet told me he had done all he could and Jackson wasn’t responding to any treatment, I still felt I didn’t do enough for him, gave up too soon on him.
Oh, sweetie, my heart aches for you. All I can say is in time, you will know in your heart of hearts you did what was best for Squeakers, the decision you made was out of love for him, and you will be at peace with yourself.
The love you shared with him lives on. He will always be with you and watching over you. I believe with all my heart we will, one day, be united again with those that we have loved and that have loved us. In the meantime, Squeakers is in good care with all the Rainbow Bridge Kitties and we are here to support you in any way we can.
I received a card from a friend after Jackson died, and while it might be a little corny, the card read:
“If Love could have saved you, you would have lived forever”
For some reason, this helped me feel better about the decision I made for Jackson, I hope it helps you too. Please come here and talk if you need to, many of us here have suffered the loss of a furbaby, understand what you are going through, and are here to help you through this most difficult time.
