mokie Posted October 31, 2005 Report Share Posted October 31, 2005 hi everyone. i'm new here. i'm looking for...well comfort i guess. the pain of having to put to sleep my kitty companion after 22 years is just unbearable. she was my life. smokey came into my life 22 years ago from an animal shelter. she was 8 weeks old. when she turned 16 she had a mass removed from her liver. since then my life has been evolved with taking care of her every need. she was later diagnosed with kidney disease, hyperthyroid. last tues i took her to the vet since she was wondering around with a head tilt. my vet thought it could of been a couple of things. a stroke being #1. or an inner ear infection or brain tumor, although very unlikely. we decided to treat it as an inner ear infection. the next day her left rear leg started to swell and kept getting worse. by friday it was real bad. we decided it was time. my 'mokie' left me friday morning (oct 28th, 2005) i stayed with her to the end although it was so hard. she was very uncomfortable in her last days i know she must of been suffering. i'm glad she is at peace now but now my pain is only begining. it is so unbearable sometimes i just want to end my life to stop the pain. one minute i think i'm fine then i start to cry uncontrolable. i do have other pets. 3 cats, 2 dogs and some snakes. i know they need my love an support also but my mokie needed extra TLC. i admit they got alittle ignored at times so i could tend to smokey. she was high maintance. i fed her k/d for her kidney disease for a while then she wouldn't eat it anymore. so we fed her what ever she wanted. she got to where she would only lick up baby food. we were expecting smokey to go sometime since she was so old but not like this. we thought she would go into kidney failure. we would treat that for a while then that would be it. i did hope she would make it to christmas.
