Roo

Yesterday I took Roo back to the vet, and I did what I needed to do.

My heart hurts.

I'll spare you the details, and say only that in the end there were no more questions. It was Time.

I guess the heart knows after all.

Ah, Cindy- I was so hoping your heart was wrong, but in the end it wasn't so. I'm really sorry to hear about Roo and I'm even more sorry it had to be you who took her in there in the end- I know how hard that is. Big hugs from Down Under.

Hi Carol:

Thank you. It *is* a hard thing.

NBB:

Thank you!

Claire:

Hey, you! Thanks, it's been a rough couple of weeks. How's that baby girl doing? I'm going to email you.

Being there was my choice. She was my cat, and in the last few days the only reason she'd get up was to come to me. I knew I'd always regret it if it wasn't me with her at the end.

I'm so sorry to hear that, Cindy *hugs* It's never easy, even when you know it's the right thing to do because it's Time *sigh*

Susan, Jenny and Helen:

Thank you so much. It's quite an adjustment, not having her in the house. If I see a dark sweater on a bed, I think it's her. And I kind of feel like she's still around. Maybe she'll stay with me, my own ghost-kitty.

:o( I'm SO sorry, Cindy. I had to make a similar decision about my kitty two years ago and it was incredibly difficult. ((hugs))

I experienced a similar decision with Angus, my beautiful schnauzer. I thought the pain would squish my heart.

I'm so sorry for you and for Roo.
