I've decided to put my girl to sleep tomorrow. She's still eating and washing, but she's quiet, and there's something in her beautiful eyes that saddens me. It's been a rollercoaster this weekend, and my heart is tied to her. When she perks up my heart lifts and some of the sadness goes away. When she's quiet, my heart sinks, and I cry again. As I type this, she's sitting in front of the fire, gazing into the flames. She's always been larger than life, boisterous, playful, so very clever, and totally focused on me. That girl is gone, and I have to accept that. She'll leave this world in my arms, she's given me so much in our life together, I owe it to her to give her this, and comfort her as she's comforted me.

Yes, only you can decide, and it's the last loving thing you can do for her. It's dreadful, coming so fast after the shock of the diagnosis; you've had no time to come to terms with it - but in a way it's worse for you than it is for her; she doesn't know the circumstances; all she will know is oh that dratted vet again, falling asleep in your arms and waking free of that diseased body. It's the owners who grieve, even though the cats go free and into another dimension.
I firmly believe you and she will be reunited one day, cold comfort as that is, I know, and you will miss her badly, but you'll have done the right thing for her.
Hugs to you and fusses to Onion, lots of love, Lil x

I am so sorry - the last and kindest gift, but it comes at a heavy cost. My thoughts are with you today.
