Hello everyone. I want to thank all of you for your wonderful advice and understanding also.I was on the board almost everynight. Well I ran into a sticky situation. The cat was having a harder time swallowing and I just couldn't feed her ( didn't want to terrify her) I finally removed food so she couldn't see it. She would go look at it and then just stand there and try to swallow ( like she was checking to see if she thought she could swallow it) She also would jump off the bed and go look at her litter box and just stand and turn around and jump back on the bed. My heart was breaking for her so I took her to the vet today. I went to my usual vet and they had said they didn't want me to be with her during euthanasia and that it would take a hour before they could get to me. I just left and went to another vet. I have been there 7 times in a month and had to wait around a hour even when she was dehydrated. The other vet I took her to was very understanding and took her right on in and let me be with her and she just feel asleep (peacefully she left us) . I have cried alot but I know I really didn't have a choice. I wouldn't watch her starve. I think that would have killed her before the cancer and that would have been a slow death. 2 minutes and she was gone. It was probably the hardest decision I ever made because she wanted to live, eat, use the litter box etc.. but just couldn't as you can see from what she was attempting to do and how she had any energy I will never know but she was a strongwilled cat. She was special and will be missed and remembered. I thank you again for all the good advice and great links. I will keep the info Since I have 5 other cats and 3 dogs however she was our favorite. May she be in a blissful place being loved more than ever, since she loved that more than anything!!
