Lorrie, I was saddened to read that Beezer has crossed the Rainbow Bridge. I understand how hard that decision is but it is also the greatest gift we can give to a terminally ill furry friend. With each kitty I have had a QOL guide to judge when it was time for that cat to cross over - them not me. I am never ready.
I'll light a candle for Beezer tonight.
