time to buck up......



Have you seen the knitters periodic table of fibers? Cute eh? Reminds me too much of my science days. Science was my poorest subject. How then did I get through nursing school? Angels helped me, of this I am sure!

I am hoping some angels will get me through tomorrow.

Time to buck up here and put on the big girl panties. Our oldest cat Fiona, has in inoperable stomach tumor. Tomorrow Al and I will put her down. She is almost 18. She has been a quirky and wonderful family cat. She is at the point where the tumor is completely obstructing her intestines. No wonder she hasn't wanted to eat lately. Fiona bona. Our little Fi. I know you all will sympathize because you are a great group.....and I know Huck will be there to meet her.

I WOULD LOVE YOU TO LEAVE A COMMENT>

Oh Kathy, you'll be in my prayers tomorrow.

It's hard, but you know it's the right thing to do.

Sympathy and hugs.

Nell said...

I'm so sorry. But think of how you took great care of her for so long.

Oh Kathy, I am so so sorry. Nothing is harder, I know. Enjoy and treasure her tonight. I know she appreciates that you are doing what she needs. I love you and will be thinking of you.

Oh goodness. Prayers and peace. It's so hard to be a responsible pet owner sometimes!! I hope you'll understand when I say I pray she slips away in her sleep tonight...

Your chart would have made chemistry much more fun! So sorry about your kitty, Kathy; that's a tough decision for sure. Thinking of you and sending big hugs.

Katherine said...

I'm so sorry Kathy!! I will be praying for you and Al. We are moms--kid moms and pet moms, and we are called on to do many hard tasks. Letting our babies go is the hardest thing we are asked to do! God bless the beasts and God bless little Fiona!!

Oh wow, I'm so sorry to hear about Fiona. I'm sorry to hear about your impending loss of a longtime family member, but I think you made the best decision for her. ((((HUGS)))

I am so sorry, Kathy.

We've done this enough times now that I know there is really nothing else to say. You will be on my mind today, tomorrow and many days after that.

Bless your kitty heart, Fiona.

One of the hardest/worst/best decisions a pet-owner has to make. All of you will be on my heart today, and I'll give my pets an extra squeeze on Fiona's behalf.

Thanks to all of you who commented. I felt strangely peaceful amid all the tears this morning. I know your thoughts and prayers were with us.

Sorry that you will have to say good-bye to your kitty...knowing it is the right thing doesn't make it any less sad/painful to be without her...Prayers for you all.

I'm so sorry. It's so hard to help our fur-kids over the Rainbow Bridge.

HUGS!
