I'll remember you...

Sister found out today they have to put their beloved cat to sleep tomorrow. He had an abscessed tooth and just hasn't been the same since his surgery. Turns out, he has cancer. He hasn't eaten since last week and is down to nine pounds. They took him to the vet and, despite being fed intravenously, he hasn't improved.

The vet called today with the sad news. She allowed them to bring him home for one last night, so right now they are showering him with lots of love and kisses and saying good-bye. I can't even imagine what they are going through.

I'll be back with the funny tomorrow. Right now, I'm just too heartbroken for them to be darling.

Tell your sister that I feel her pain and get her a copy of that Rainbow Bridge poem.

Our dog died 2.5 weeks ago, and I'm just now even trying to begin to live normal life again.

I'll be thinking of her family.

I started to well-up reading this...I have a tea cup chihuahua (no bigger than a beer bottle) and the thought of losing him always breaks my heart.

I hope your sister doing well and pass on Imleda's condolences. xxx

I had to put my cat down this past summer, because he started having kidney failure and we couldn't afford the treatment for him. I cried myself to sleep literally for weeks and weeks.. and im about to cry just writing this now. Its such a sad thing to have to do, so I hope your sister gets through it ok.
