Hard to say goodbye
Thursday, August 30, 2012
I took off work today to spend time with my cat. We have had him since he was a kitten 18 years, we also have his 2 brothers. 3 weeks ago the lump on his jaw that had been there for about a month, was diagnosed as squamos cell carcinoma. After his biopsies, he had a really hard time eating and drinking. I am a nurse but was a veterinarian technician, so i have been feeding him can food and water via syringe. He is in pain and i have been giving him pain med every 8 hours. Now though he is no longer his cat self and i have to make the appointment to go to the vet. I know i have to do what is best for him but it is so hard to say goodbye forever. so today we will spend our time together and remember the last 18 years of fun and love.
