The final loving decision we can make for our pets
We miss them yes, but they miss all the drawn out pain of a final illness
And leave us With countless memories
And better people for knowing and loving them
And beingloved by them
I've been there so many times so know how you must be feeling. Perhaps the only saving grace is to know that such a brave decision was the best one for your pet.
Run free at the bridge little one.
We had one of our ponies put down last year, that was very painful, 20+ years of friendship and fun all gone in an instant.
Why do we get so attached to Pets?
So sorry for your loss, we had the same decision to make 4 years ago with our cat who at almost 18 years old had kidney failure, and though it was a heartbreaking decision it was kinder than to see her suffer. you have given your cat a good life and made the right decision even though it is heartbreaking for you, remember the good times.
One of our cats has had to be put to sleep this week after a sudden onset of blindness, caused by a tumour on her kidneys.
One of five, mother plus four kittens, that we had originally, the last surviving member is now 15 years old.
Always causes a tearful morning for us both, but she was well looked after and we felt that it was kinder to let her go than stumble around in blindness and discomfort.
