You did what you thought was the right thing for Cheshire and that is what 
counts.  With multiple problems is is hard to get them stable enough for 
effective treatments.  I've had cats get super stressed out going to the vet 
and others that don't mind at all.  If you hadn't tried to help her you would 
always question yourself wondering if there was something else you could have 
done.  At least now you know you did everything possible to help her.

In the end we love them, care for them and let them go.  She knew you were 
trying to help her and you were there for her.  That is what really counts.
