For over 18 years, he's been my boyfriend's constant companion. For the last six years he's been my little boy. Four legged furry boy to be sure, but that doesn't negate his importance to us.

His kidneys are failing. He won't eat. It is time to let him go. If he doesn't pass on his own in the next few days in the comfort of his home, then he will pass in the comfort of my arms with the assistance of a competent, kind and merciful veterinarian.

We've done everything we can to make him comfortable.

I don't like the death part of life and death decisions very much right now.

I'm so sorry I can certainly relate to what you're going through.

He's been with you a very long time though, and I'm sure he's lived a very loved life.

We must do what we must when it's the right thing to do (in the interest of the animal).
Rest assured, he does know that you love him; he understands what's going on, but he knows it is love that drives you.

Just as long as you are there, by his side, he will be fine. I hope you are too. I'm so sorry you guys have to go through this.

I'm so sorry, I've had to go through this. It won't help your loss, but my cat looked in my eyes as if she were saying "thank you" and peacefully left. It's so hard, they're family.

It is done.

With a shot of B-12 and subcutaneous fluids, he spent his last 48 hours at ease. He had all the ham and anything else he wanted. He got to go outside with his people several times. He even went out in the backyard one last time. Anything he wanted, he got. For 48 hours, he lived like a king.

Wednesday afternoon we took him down for his last goodbye with those he loved with him until the end.

He was an extraordinary animal.

Sorry to hear, Lucky. I dislike hearing this sort of news from others right now. Too close to home unfortunately.

I recently learned that there may be some difficult decisions regarding my own 4-legged critter in the near future--although I'm still *trying* to be optimistic that his issues are the lesser of two or three evils. He apparently became a "geriatric" without me even realizing it. (Someone must not have delivered the news to him because he still runs around like a banshee!)

I hope you guys are coping well. Best of wishes.

I am so very sorry, Lucky.

He was not a king for those 48 hours, he was always and will always be cat king of the world.
