AnniesTreasures Posted December 23, 2014 Report Share Posted December 23, 2014 Still doing my homework to deal with my cat's death - Sir Greysby - after a 30-day battle he had with pancreatitis. Has anyone lost a pet to illness, wherein they watched their pet looking more-and-more sickly, and have those images burned into the mind? Can one experience a certain amount of shock from this? I've struggled with those images, especially the last 6-days of his life. I never went through this before, and as much as I attempt to out-run the thoughts, the last days of his life come back to me. Also, I am still trying to get past feeling guilty about his being euthanized. The morning that he and I got up, he tried to socialize and nuzzled me with his head. Later that day, I took him to the Vet, because he wasn't eating again and was looking more boney and fragile. The Vet told me he was terminal and likely had only days to live and that he was in a lot of pain. She said the most humane thing I could do for him was to put him to sleep. He trusted me and I feel that I somehow betrayed him. Annie Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
