This is just a quick update on my poor old sick kitty, Salem.
We are doing insulin with little difference for 24 hours now. I have to coax and syringe food and liquids into him. He will lick at canned cat food or even tuna but most of it stays in the bowl. He can barely walk. He lays in his litter box for hours if I let him. I spent some time just watching him today....I think he is sad and miserable. He doesn't seem to be in pain but I think he is telling me it's time to go.
So I have been pondering that all afternoon and had just reached a decision to call the Vet in the morning and set up an appointment. About 20 minutes later the phone rang. It was our Vet checking to see how he was. We had a discussion about his lack of improvement and the decision has been made. We are having him put down on Friday at 11:30.
I feel at peace with this decision....it is time, and I don't want to put him through anymore. I know in my heart that it is best for him.
It is best for me too. I have been agonizing about this for days and haven't been able to focus on much of anything.
And so it goes.....
Til next time,
