Thank you Sharyl. This morning I had to take my old sweetie to the vet to be put to sleep. He was 17 years old and had been dealing with kidney failure for over a year. As all of us know, making the decision to put a pet to sleep is one of the most difficult decisions we ever have to make, but my wonderful vet helped me decide when he said keeping an old terminally ill cat alive is more for the owner than for the cat, who has no quality of life left.
Beezer was a stray when I rescued him in 1993 and he had a long happy life, as an indoor/outdoor cat who had the best of both worlds. Losing a special pet is always terribly hard, but I sincerely believe we will meet again at the rainbow bridge.
