We just had to put our kitty to sleep :'(

Our poor kitty has had a lot of stomach problems. He's been unable to control his bowels, and now his bladder. He also has had blood in his stool the last few days.

The vet has ran tests and we've tried different medications on him, changed his diet, the whole bit. The vet said we can either try a surgery on him that she doesn't even think would work and would be hard on him or put him down.

She highly recommended putting him down because he is in pain and she doesn't think he'll get better. DH and I are beyond heartbroken right now. We stayed with him while they did it, and I lowered him into his grave. This was the hardest thing I've ever had to do.

  • Aw I am so sorry.  It is so hard to loose a pet.  I hope you can find some comfort in knowing that you did the right thing and he isn't suffering anymore.  Still it is so hard.  So sorry you had to say goodbye.

  • I'm so sorry for the loss of your kitty. I've been there before and it sucks. Feel free to vent here if you need to.
  • So sorry to hear this. We just had to put one of our cats to sleep just before Labor Day. It's never an easy thing to do. Many thoughts for you.

  • I'm sorry you're having to go through this.  I dread the day that my (now our) kitty is no longer with us.  She's been mine longer but I think DH will be truly devastated.  It is never easy though.
  • I'm so, so sorry to read this.  *hugs*
