A Very Bad Day

Yesterday I had to put my beloved Katy down. I was not ready. I thought I knew the signs, but Katy didn't experience those signs. She was still eating, she was still agile, and she could still be happy, but she was in pain. The tumor was shutting off her bladder.

Today we are snowed in, wandering around the house that feels so empty. Lucy doesn't realize it yet and keeps looking for her as I keep making a conscious effort not to.

I'm so sorry! Find comfort in knowing you did everything you could for her, and I bet she was happy to the end ... especially with that last great bunny chase!

Thanks Molly. She would have died a very painful death within a few days even though she had been acting ok until Thursday night.
Thanks for reminding me how happy she was chasing that bunny - that helps.

Thanks Cath. I know you understand.

I am so sorry. http://www.indigo.org/rainbowbridge_ver2.html helped me when I lost my Suzy. Maybe you will find it helpful, too, even if just a little.

Peace be with you.

Thanks Helen. That sounds like a good idea for all of us here and I hadn't thought of it. We were all so devoted to her.

Oh, BB. I'm so sorry to hear this. I've been out of town and out of touch, or I would have said something earlier. Even though it was the right thing to do, I know it must have been so difficult. I'm thinking of you and yours. Many heartfelt hugs....

Thanks Hesira, it was very hard to do.

It looks like you had a great trip!
