my danny cat
Thursday, August 11, 2011
We had to say goodbye to our sweet Danny cat on Tuesday. She was very sick and very miserable, and she wasn't going to get better. Our vet did his best, but said that even with everything he tried, she was going to be just as sick and unable to breathe within 12-24 hours. I know that euthanasia was the best choice, so at least she was as comfortable as she could have been when she died, but that was a decision I never wanted to make. The only thing that is bringing me any degree of peace is that I got to hold her the whole time, so at least she wasn't scared and alone.
I don't know if it's better that she was only sick for a few days, or if it's just incredibly cruel that we were completely blindsided by this. She just turned 6, and Jordan and I had been talking about how lucky we were that we could expect to have her for at least another 6 years. Needless to say, I'm absolutely devastated. Danny has been my greatest, sweetest friend for the past four years, and I can't imagine my life without her.
All I've thought about for every second of the past two days has been how much I miss her. I would give anything to have my sweet cat back.
I'm taking a break from blogging for a little while, so I have a few friends who will be guest posting for me.
