I know that feeling all too well.  You want to keep them with you but you do 
not want to make them suffer.  That is what happens when you rescue, you know 
nothing about their past lives and illness and it makes it so hard to help 
them.  Watching Jackson Galaxy has taught me so much about my pride.  Amazing 
that many of the cat's problems can be laid at their owner's doorstep.  I 
especially remember the couple's cat that would not use the box.  They only 
cleaned the box every other week.  I have 7 boxes and I clean them twice daily. 
   One thing you know for sure, he is not suffering and is in a happier place 
now.  Thank you for caring..

It was a really sad decision. I had had a tough time with him at first because 
he peed on everything. Thanks to some things I learned from watching Jackson 
Galaxy we got him out of that habit & he was becoming a total sweetheart. He 
just loved to walk up to you an put his head against you. 
Some hit you harder than others. This was pretty difficult. The lady who found 
him is having him cremated for me.

Thanks guys for just being there.
