hug So sorry, it's so hard when their time is called. Kitty would have felt your love and and they will still live with you in your heart. I also found it hard when our old boy needed to go. It's such a hard decision.

I looked into Balty's eyes to see if he could tell me. If he looked happy and he was up to the day. That day I knew it was his time and he had to go to the vet. He was 21 and looked a wreak. That day he couldn't stand, he let out a terrible howl to let me know there was something wrong. I know it's so hard to know. If you feel it's too soon you'll probably feel guilty for a long long time (what ifs) If it's too late you may feel you made them suffer. I don't think you can ever pin point a right time. I suppose you will know. If you are 2nd guessing yourself, wait. Purrs to you

Tough one, I had to have Balty shaved when I couldn't get the mats out. It would be too painful for him if I combed him. frown

I'm glad it all went well as I was going to suggest if it was possible to do it while you were awake. We had a vet that wanted to sedate me too, so the human took me to another vet clinic that was happy to shave me while I was just sitting there in a consult. It was done while the human was holding me. I have to admit I preferred that too. As the years went on, the more they took off me. I was almost bald on my last shave laugh out loud

I always wondered where all the pens went. YES!!!! it happens here too the pens disappear off the desk. shock Though I do find a fair few on the floor, maybe they don't quite find their way to the tradie.

Who knows I also had that problem and had to leave Balty at a cattery which wasn't his favourite place. I also wondered if he'll make it and I also didn't want his last days to be miserable. 2 years ago when I had to go away for work I said to the cattery I understand if he doesn't make it and we arranged what they should do with the body if that happened cry But he was there when we went to pick them all up. Again a year later we had the same deal with the cattery we were shocked he was STILL around a year later. AND again he was there when we got back but it was only a few days but still he was there. You never know. If you put them down, it's something you can't go back on and it's something you don't want to have any regrets. I know it's hard. But sometimes it's easier to look into their eyes and ask yourself do they look ready. If not, wait. Just put a plan in place if something happens what your daughter should do. Be prepared as you don't want to go away feeling guilty either thinking If you intend on burying them in the garden it may be good to dig the hole and cover it before you leave. So you don't feel like you are leaving it all to your daughter. You may be pleasantly surprise and your kitty may live for another year. If you intend to have them cremated give your daughter the number to ring for collection. Once again it may not be needed. Have a good holiday, I know it won't be easy either way.

Out of curiosity thinking If you get stuck and you only have dry food. If the cats want wet and you need food with moisture can you soak their daily food in warm water and then put it through a blender?
I know they are filled with junk but I've seen many cats live into their very late teens on cheap cat food.
To be honest Balty was fed for many years on cheap cat food/biscuits before the human realised there was better food out there. He lived to 21 and he never suffered from urinary problems. Funny enoughlaugh out loud Raza ,Sam, and D all DO have urinary problems and are on restricted diets and they have been feed the best food we can find here for them all their lives. Sam and D are Raza's kittens so I assume it runs in families. Sam and D only eat dry food but Raza eats wet (their preferred option). But it doesn’t seem to make a difference to them on how susceptible they are to urinary problems. What I've noticed it seems stress is a major cause with these guys.
