I had Bullseye put to sleep on Monday. It's taken me a few days to come to terms with it.

He was diagnosed with squamous cell carninoma the first part of November. I asked him to make it through the holidays for me, and being the trooper he was, he gave me that.

My best guestimate is that he was 13 years old. He orginally belonged to a neighbor who moved and left him behind. He's been ours for the last 11 years or so. The neighbor kids came back looking for him a few years after they'd moved, but DH hid him and said he was long gone. Animal control had picked up their dogs. The rest of their cats, all FELV+, with the exception of Bullseye, fell to me to deal with. I've never regretted not giving him back.

Bullseye was a true gentleman. He got along well with everyone, people or animal. He loved to have his belly rubbed.

It was a hard call to make because he was still eating, as long as the food was liquified, and he still was eager for a lap to sit on. I had him on the very highest daily dose of Metacam the vet would allow and even that wasn't always enough. I think it's likely his kidneys were affected, which was to be expected, because I was starting to see more urine in the box. The constant drool had become mostly blood. I decided to let him go maybe a few days early. I didn't want to see him suffer. We all miss him.

I'm sorry you had to make a decision like that! It's so hard to watch them suffer & you really cannot let them go on like that. Bullseye is now healthy & pain free happily over the rainbow bridge!

I'm so sorry for your loss. What a handsome boy your Bullseye was! I think you did the right thing, not giving him back to a home that was uncertain at best and keeping him with you where you made his last years happy and loved.

Rest in peace little guy, where there is no more pain and lost of beautiful kitties across the bridge for you to play with.

Thank you everyone for the kind thoughts. It's been a tough day for me and I've felt better reading your messages. It's been a week today and no matter how hard I try, everytime I look at the clock I can tell you what I was doing at this exact time last Monday. I try not to do that, I know it's over and he's at peace, but my brain just won't shut down. I'm not sure what causes a person to do that, but I know I'm not alone. I see so many people acknowledging that a week, a year, some measure of time has passed since they lost their pet. Most days I can't tell you what I had for lunch the day before, yet I can relive my last moments with them almost to the minute.

Anyway, thank you all.

It's hard enough to lose our little friends, and even more difficult to make the decision.

Rest in peace, Bullseye You know you were loved.

Condolences on your sad loss of Bullseye. You made the right decision to let him go early, so that he would not suffer with pain, even though it was a decision that would cause your poor heart such pain. I am sure that memories that you share with Bullseye were only because you rescued him; without your loving care, who knows the sad future that would have been his fate. I hope that your memories of your dear friend bring you comfort. Godspeed over Rainbow Bridge, Bullseye- you were a real beauty and a very dear gentleman
