I hope little Mo passes soon.....Not that I want Mo to be gone but I want you to be able to actually grieve his loss rather than be subjected to the pain of wondering each day if THIS is the day and worrying if he is going to die while you are away from him..... I don't know that they sense our presence when they are this ill and close to the end of their lives but I know it made ME feel better to be with my guys holding them for as many hours as I could while they were near the end.....  I hope you , too, are able to be physically connected to your little Mo when he leaves his little body......   I am comforted for Mo that he has you caring this much that his last moments have a much quality as you can provide

Thank you all for your kind words and support. It means so much to me
during this painful time.

I am so sorry Sheri. You did everything possible. And you?re right. It is beyond unfair that these innocent beings should suffer and die like this.

Mo's appetite hasn't improved and this morning I found him in my
daughter's room laying in a puddle of his own urine. I gave him his
buprenorphine but I am done forcing meds on this angel beyond comfort care.



We were going to see the vet today for bloodwork, but I don't really see the point now. Perhaps if we had tried these meds when he first started slipping it would have helped him. At least I am armed with this knowledge
for Violet.



My heart is breaking. This is all so unfair.

Sheri
There is no better ending for our little friends than to die in the arms of those who loved them....... and no better ending for us as well. Mo deserves to not have his end be a repetition of his beginnings...I realize that I am not the most objective fellow in the world at the moment but ,having had my little yogi die with me holding him ... passing quietly and peacefully was a comfort for me. No quess workhether it was the right time. No yanking him from his home, to be put in a carrier and exposed to a stressful car ride.. placed on a metal table to meet his end in a strange place. Whenever possible this IS the way to go

My heart is breaking for you too. It is so unfair. I curse this stupid virus. I hate the fact that there is not something more that can be done
with treatment and cure.

You are in my thoughts and prayers.  Stay strong.

I have been allowed to hold both of my cats & 1 for my sister as they were
"put down". Using a towel around their lower half to catch anything
excreted when they leave their body helps.
Be your & your baby's best advocate when the time comes.
My heart hurts for yours,

I have done this too, but I'm really hoping Mo can pass at home. His whole life was meds and surgeries and needles and clinics and shelters, I don't
want his last moments to be the same.

He left my bed in the night and had an accident on the floor. I have laid potty pads on his spot and put him there after. He's resting comfortably
for now.

I have to work this morning. It is killing me to leave him alone. I will at least be out by lunchtime to spend the rest of the day with him. It's so difficult to smile and focus on my patients when all I want is to be home
for him.

I have another round of Buprenorphine waiting at the vet. My only goal is
to make him comfortable until he goes.

I appreciate all of you. These emails have been so comforting and kind,
they mean so much to me right now, thank you.
