Life has a funny way of closing chapters. Sometimes they close exactly when you need them to with a nice little resolution, like a short story. Here’s the beginning, middle and end. Other times, it drops you off a cliff when you least expect it. The month of April was the latter for us. Our sweet, sweet cat went into kidney failure. I spent two days carting him between an animal hospital and our vet’s, picking him up before and after work. We watched as he slipped away and there was just nothing we could do but finally put him out of his misery.
For all the fellow pet owners out there, I’m sure you understand the aftermath of putting down a beloved pet… Did you do the right thing? Did you give up too early? Was there something you missed that could of lead to you taking them to the vet earlier and ultimately saving them?
