They make house calls? At least the last thing teh car will remember is being in the place she knew and with people and animals she loved.

That's a mantra I could wish for people, too. You will have accomplished it.

Alia was the cat I got after I was divorced. She was with me through many emotional upheavals, good and bad. I held her when the vet gave her the injections. The last sound she made was a purr when I stroked her head. It was the best I could do for my girl.

Take the baton, friend, its your turn.

Take a picture tonight and post it.

Yeah, animal hospice comes to your home and does the deed. Wont be under the mango tree, she loves sleeping on the guest bed, and that is where we will say goodbye.

It costs, but for all she has given me, the least I can do is spend the coin and spare her the trauma of the trip to the vet, and her last scents being of anticeptic and stainless steel. She will be in her home, surrounded by familiar scents and sounds....

I am so conflicted. She is eating like a horse, but not gaining an ounce. Today though, she was sneezing, and it was bloody. She ate well, but then just looked at me and meowed, like she is saying "It's time". She just came out and ate again (I am baking chicken, so I am sure she smells it) and then went back to bed.

What if she's not ready to go, and I shorten her life? What if she is, and I am prolonging it and causing her pain?

I am hoping the vet who comes can tell me one way or the other, but I feel that i am doing the right thing.

Cats are just so damn unreadable.

No pictures, Daughter still has my camera, but maybe I will use my phone, I dunno <mimi shrug>

I just wish I knew for certain what what right.

Tonka & Race, sorry to hear about your critters. I guess I missed Tonka's story the first time around.

Both of my dogs are starting to show their ages, especially the little one. She *hates* going for walks and is so slow anymore, but still gets excited for treats and loves to snuggle, so... as long as she's more happy and comfortable than not, I won't do anything.

Why does she hate going for walks? When she was younger, did she love them? Or she was ambivalent?

I completely agree with your attitude: so long as they're more happy than unhappy, I'll keep mine alive and with me.

Well, I had steeled myself to putting her down. Gave her an entire can of cat food (and she ate it all), then went back to her napping spot. I checked on her a couple of times, all was normal.

Then she cam out in the living room and when I went to pet her, she ran into the bedroom and under the bed! I was like WTF? She will not come out, so I called and cancelled for today. Told them I know I will need them soon, but apparently she does not want to go today.

Relieved and sad. But when she is active, she is totally normal active, its not like she is walking around in pain (that I can tell), but I know I am running out of time quickly.
