Dear Sue, I have been thru this so many times, and knowing WHEN to put a kitty down is s terrible decision. No matter when you do it you will feel you either did it too soon, and your cat may have been able to live longer, or you'll think you waited too long, and your cat suffered.... I believe your Buzzy used the last of his strength to fight going into the cat carrier, because we all know how much cats hate being put in carriers! I don't think it meant he was going to get better. We all hope our cats will die at home in their sleep, but this so seldom happens, and I know how awful it is to have to make the decision to take them to the vet to be put to sleep. Don't let this haunt you. He knew he was loved, and I'm sure you made the right decision.
