Oh:/ Rest In Peace Miss Mouse

We put down the family dog 4 years ago and it was tough. I think its always tough losing one you love. You have 19 wonderful years of memories though! Think of those:)

@MrsPhilly:  I’m so sorry for your loss. I work in a veterinary practice as a Vet Tech and we deal with people having to say goodbye to their little friends everyday. Its awful. Even if I just met the person I cry with them and give them a hug every time.

Please feel comfortable in your decision. You did the kindest thing you could do for her and she knew how much she was loved.

When you and your family are ready, perhaps consider checking out your local SPCA and taking a new little friend home. Nothing is more healing from saying goodbye to a life than saving another.

Best wishes.

So sorry for your loss.

We had to put our dog down on Christmas Eve.  It hurts.

 I’m so sorry for your loss. Try to remember the beautiful life you gave her, and how much love you both gave to the other.

@MrsPhilly:  I’m so sorry to hear about your special kitty friend. I know it’s an awful decision to have to make. We had to put my childhood dog to sleep about a year ago. It took him a while to go unconscious as well and he was in a lot of pain from the initial injection. It broke my heart into even more pieces. Now that I’ve had some time to really process things, I want you to know that you did the right thing for your cat. As hard as it is, it was the kindest and most loving thing you could do with her. I’ll be thinking of you- I know how hard this is.

@MrsPhilly:  I am so sorry for your loss. I’m not a cat person, but she looks like she was a beautiful little kitty and it sounds as if she had a personality to match her looks.

We had two dogs growing up. Our second dog was scheduled to be put to sleep. He was 10, had horrible hip displaysia, and was having a lot of trouble health-wise. The night before the appointment, my parents woke up to find him on their bedroom floor having a really tough time breathing. They cradled him, held him, and comforted him until he passed away in their arms.

Our first dog was put to sleep after he severely injured his back – there was surgery to correct it, but he would not have been able to run and play like he used to. In the end, as much as I hated them for the decision, my parents made the right call. . . just like your family made the right call for your cat.
