You are so right.  I have been with all my babies at the end and I know it made 
me feel much better knowing that if they needed me, I was there.  And yes, they 
do know you are there and love them.  Usually they take hold of me with their 
paws and hold on.  I think it makes them feel more secure in those last moments.

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
