I have to say that my Cole has lost his fight. The last 2 weeks he has been 
recieving epogen shots two times a week and we found out today that the shots 
have not improved his anemia. He in fact got worse and his hemoglobin went down 
to 9% from 11% 2 weeks ago. He has also lost an addition 1lb in 3 days because 
he would not eat. It was the hardest thing ever to have to make the call in 
putting him to sleep or not, but he has been so lethargic and down the last 
couple days, I had no choice. He was not in good enough shape to even attempt 
any other treatment at this point. I wish I would have caught this earlier and 
maybe treatment would have been better. He had been living with Feline Leukemia 
since birth and he lived to be almost 7, so at least I was blessed with that 
time with him. Right now the hardest thing is to come home and not have him 
waiting at the door for me. I am praying that I made the right decision and 
didnt jump the gun on putting him to sleep, but I just could not take it if I 
knew that I was prolonging his suffering. I am having him cremated and we are 
having a special urn made for him with his picture. All I can say is that 
having Cole for a short 6 1/2 years was worth the heartache I have now, he was 
my rock and was there for me when I needed him and now it is my turn to be 
there for him. Thank you all for your support and words of advice, it helped me 
make it through the 2 toughest weeks of my life. I love you Cole.> Kim>
