My Buffy's Final Days


Buffy's blood test results were not good 10 days ago. She has been in poor health for the past year and a half but now it's to the point where she's on so many meds and there's no hope of improvement. Mom said that it would be for the best if we have her put to sleep and even the vet agreed. I was hoping that she would be around until at least her 13th birthday in February. The vet said that we have been very good owners but I can't help thinking that I could have done better. I already wrote about the hating myself for not trying the non - steroid allergy med and don't want to get into that again. I feel as if we poisoned her because of this. We will be taking her to the vets on Thursday afternoon and I have been very emotional about this. We will be giving her lots of love and attention and enjoying every last moment with her this week. I love her so much - she is like a member of our family. I have so many good memories of her and will always cherish these. I pray that I get to see her again in the afterlife.

I'm so sorry to hear about Buffy, LaraAnn. It is never easy to have to say goodbye to a pet especially as they're so much a family member as any human. However, rest assured that if she is suffering and not improving then you're definitely doing the right thing. Our vet always told her when we had to put an old and sick cat to sleep that our timing was good and that we always seem to know when the time is right. You and Buffy will be in my thoughts.

Pam - thank you so much for your kind words which helped me to feel a little better during such a sad time. You are right - she may look and even act healthy but according to the vets her insides are not doing good so it's for the best that we let her go now.
