We had to put Lincoln to sleep this morning. He hasn’t been well for about a week so we took him to the emergency clinic. They gave us a bunch of meds and told us to monitor him. He still wasn’t better this morning so we brought him back in. A blood test confirmed that he was riddled with cancer cells. We could have started him on a bunch of meds that could have given him a few more weeks but he wasn’t going to live beyond that. The meds may not have worked anyway which would have just prolonged his suffering. Darling Husband and I made the call to let him go. It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do and I’m so beyond devestated right now.
I’m really going to miss my boy. He was the best cat ever. 🙁

I am so sorry you had to do this. It’s heartbreaking. You definitely made the right decision. I have had 2 cats with cancer and the suffering and pain is just too much to watch them go through.

=o((((( It takes a very strong person to not prolong potential suffering, even though I know you’d rather have more time with him. You did a very selfless thing and he’s probably right there beside you. *hugs*

OMG I’m so sorry! I can’t believe in the course of the week he went from “something seems off” to completely gone 🙁 It is crazy how much a cat or dog can really become part of the family… so sorry for your loss

@UpstateCait: I’m so sorry 🙁 My parents had to put our family dog down last week and my mom didn’t tell me until after. It was really hard and I wish I had been able to see her before it happened but my mom assured me it couldn’t wait. Losing a pet can be like losing a family member. Hugs to you.
