I took my cat to the vet today (not the one that was previously sick) because he's losing weight very quickly. At first I thought it was because he hated the new food I bought, but this week it became clear that it was something else. He's soo skinny. Almost emaciated.
So anyway, he has a large tumor in his abdomen and he can't eat anything. Surgery is not very successful, and I can't afford chemo, and he said it would just come back. He told me he has a couple of weeks left if I can get him to eat kitten milk and really soupy cat food mixed with water.
I brought Star home and gave him the food, and he ate a bunch of it, but a few hours later he just threw it all up.
I'm beyond upset. I think I'm going to bring him in tomorrow to be put to sleep. He's basically starving to death in front of me. I was hoping to keep him through the weekend so I could spend time outside with him, but I think that's just too cruel.
I've never done this before, and I have no idea what to expect, or what to do. Part of me just wants to bring him there and run away, but I feel like I should be there with him. After me passing out while watching my dog getting his nails cut, I don't think I'll make it through this.
I don't think I'll ever get anymore pets after this. Its just too hard.
