Thank you so much. I lost my boy Charlie 4 days ago and he was really suffering at the time. We had such a loving life and we were so close. My other boy Mister is very confused and I'm trying to give him space and keep everything positive and keep him distracted.

The vet said he had heart failure and there was a very slim chance he would withstand any treatment and adviced to put him too sleep. I was a mess and just wanted to do what was best for him. I keep replaying the day and part of me wishes I chose treatment. But I'm so glad I was there with him and that he didn't pass alone and in more pain than he was already in. I was so torn and I think I always will be but it helped so much to read that. It helped me understand no matter what I would feel this way. No matter what he would have suffered. He looked so peaceful when he passed I just didn't want too leave the room. Thank you so much for posting this it's a massive help in accepting that this grief was inevitable.
