I euthanized my own cat today. She was 13 years old and had a bad heart. She threw a clot - a saddle thrombus and was in intense pain. At first we tried some live saving measures but when she pulled her IV catheter out I felt like it was her saying "please let me go." Rest in peace, sweet kitten.

I can only echo what others have said: thank you for what you are doing, and I'm sorry for your loss.

Thank you for caring! Having to put these animnals down must be a very difficult experince. It touches my heart, and I know it touches yours. Thankfully they don't live in pain. I have had to put 2 pets down, both very old and when they showed pain that we were unable to relieve, it was the best choice. I still feel the ache of the loss, but they don't anymore.

I keep coming back and reading this post. On June 9 I had to let my 15 yr old calico go. She had been with me through so much. My kids growing up and moving away, people I love dying, my marriage almost falling apart.

I'd lie on the couch at night and she'd come from where ever she was, jump up and lay on my arm. I miss her.

She was 15 but I still called her "kitten". I come back to read your words and make them mine "Rest in peace, sweet kitten".
