I may be a mess most of today. I have an appointment to take Gandalf, our eldest cat, in to be put to sleep this morning. He's almost 16 and having late-stage chronic renal failure, and is about a week past the point of no return, as far as we can tell. We had him in the hospital last week and have had him on subcutaneous fluids and a phosphorous binder this week, and it's just not doing any good.

So yeah, not shaping up to be a good morning.

Oh hon, my sympathies.
*HUG* This is never easy.

May your grief go as easy as it can, and healing come soon.
*HUG*

I am sorry. Hang in there, hug your loved ones.

Oh dear. Poor Gandalf, and poor you.

M

I'm sorry to hear about Gandalf, but it sounds like you're doing the right thing.

Aw, I'm sorry. :( *hugs*

Oh, I'm sorry, sweetie! *Snug*

I'm so sorry. :(

*hug*

and it's just not doing any good.

Then you are going to do the best good you can. A loved life and a caring end are worthwhile. Love does not stop our lives from ending. It just makes them worth living in the first place. I'm glad you had each other so long, and that he'll have you there at the end.

Been there, know the pain, feel for you.

*hugs*

*hugs* You have my sympathies!

I'm so sorry.

That's a difficult decision to make, even when it's plainly the right one. *hugs*

*hugs* Farewell, sweet kitty...

And it's ok to be a mess when you lose a critter you've known that long.

I don't expect to be on much until at least after lunch today, but if I could 'port out and give you a big ol' bear hug, I would...

*hugs*

I'll be thinking of you today.

Awwww. :( *hug*

I am so, so sorry, honey. You have my deepest sympathies.

Had to go through that before. My condolences, for what they're worth. Let me show you them.

*hugs* Once again, I'm so sorry.

I'm very sorry, the loss of a pet is a horrible thing. :(

hugs, i'm so sorry. i had to do the same with my first familiar, Canela.

I am very sorry, and wish I knew what to say.

I am truly sorry..You have everyone's support, reach out and let us help. *Hugs*

Sorry to hear it. :(

Oh, sweetie, I'm sorry. At least 16 years is a nice, long life for a cat. In kitty years, that's a good run. And I'm sure you made your boy very happy.

*quiet tears*

The grief is still fresh for me, from earlier this year. I'm so sorry you have to make this choice and do this thing, but like you know already, it's the best for *him.*

*wishes she had GoGoGadget arms so she could hug you all the way from here*
