Dh just got back from having our (his) cat put to sleep. She was the oldest (around 16 years old) of the pair we have. She had developed cancer in her neck about 9 months ago. She wasn't in pain, but as it grew and spread, over time, she had more difficulty eating, and lost weight. We knew her time was getting near. Last night, she had trouble swallowing, and kept choking. She was having trouble breathing, and lost bowel control.
He doesn't take his pet losses lightly. It's the first time the grands have ever seen him cry. They made sympathy cards for him, while he was at the vet's office. They went out to keep him company while he buried the cat. Having them with him, has helped.
I am very sorry for the loss of the kitty. It is never easy.
