Update On Baby

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Last Sunday I posted wondering if I was wrong for not letting my cat Baby go by having her Euthenized. She was suffering from cancer in her belly but showed no real signs of being in pain. Everyone here was so kind and supportive and for that I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I just wanted to let you all know that this morning I came downstairs to find my precious girl on her pillow, snuggled into the middle of here favorite blanket, stretched out and having gone peacefully in her sleep. I can't tell you the feeling of sadness, mixed with relief that is going through me right now. Up until last night she was walking around and eating heartily. But the past couple of days there has been a look to her that just said "I'm tired" I can't tell you how hard I prayed that she would just lay down and fall asleep for good in the comfort of her own home and I would not have to subject her to that last scary trip to the vet. My prayers were answered. I plan to shower my 7 year old cat Max with lots of love and attention and to make sure he gets through this ok. I am going out of town in a few weeks and when I return I will start to look for a new little buddy for him. I think it might help him to have someone to take care of.

Baby was a wonderful cat with more personality than I can tell you. My sister got her as a kitten and at the ripe old age of 13, my 4 year old nephew developed asthma so I took her. My nephew is now 10 and baby was just shy of her 19th birthday so she lived a long happy and spoiled life and she deserved it. I will always cherish my memories of her. Thanks again for all your support and for listening to me ramble. It is appreciated more than you know.

Nearly 19, that is a good long life, you must have been doing all the right things for her to reach that age. Bless you for giving her a good life in her later years, I am glad that she went peacefully in a place where she was happy and comfortable. I know you will miss her but she is not suffering now, and you will have a lot of good memories to comfort you

Rest in peace Baby.

May we all be so lucky as to go peacefully in sleep at a ripe old age. I'm sure she's frolicking over the rainbow bridge, feeling like a kitten again.

I'm sure that you and Max will miss her greatly. Hugs to you both

So sad to hear about your loss of Baby. She sounded a lovely cat and has passed over to Rainbow Bridge at home with the people she loved and the people who loved her, peacefully in her sleep.

I know how you feel. I am in exactly the same position with my Lucy just now.

My heartfelt sympathies to you and yours.

Rest in peace little one.

Oh, Im so sorry to hear that your Baby passed. You`ve made me cry so I can`t imagine how sad you must be feeling right now.
Im so glad she passed away in her sleep at home and like you said, was spared that final trip to the vets.

Sorry for your loss, I know exactly what you are dealing with. We lost Spooky at age 15 1/5 from a heart attack. So he did die in his sleep too. Its a lot harder when you have to take them into the vet. My first cat Mitten had to be PTS cause of cancer - he was only 13.

I'm so sorry for the loss of Baby.
I too lost a cat ( Maggie ) just days shy of her 19th Birthday and I know how hard it is when you've had them in your life for so many years and then you lose them...not that it isn't hard to lose them at any age.

She went peacefully in her sleep , in her home, with the people she loved and the people that loved her.

RIP, sweet Baby.

I'm incredibly sorry you lost precious Baby You're right, what a relief to know that Baby left this word peacefully in her sleep lying comfortably in one of her very favorite spots on her special pillow with her favorite blanket. Baby is so happy now in Heaven! Baby you're so loved and missed.

I am very sorry to hear that, please know that now Baby is over at the Bridge and she is healthy again.

I am glad that you didn't hafta make the decision to have her put to sleep. I am grateful that she went where she felt most safe.

I am sending hugs and prayers from Mississippi for you.

Maybe Baby also knew how difficult it was for to have to try to make that awful decision, so she made the decision easy for you..safe at home, asleep...RIP sweet Baby..you are missed.

I'm so sorry that Baby is gone, but i'm happy that she left the other night just the way you wished for her to go. She is playing happily over rainbow bridge right now.. and when she was stretching last night, she was probably taking the leap to go to her new forever home. =)

May Baby rest in peace and play at the Bridge. She had a long and happy life and was much loved. I hope you and your family get over her loss by remembering the good times.

I'm so sorry for your loss, but happy that her passing was peaceful! How wonderful that your sister, and then you, took in this wonderful cat, and made her senior years happy.

Poor you - RIP Baby - I am glad that the end was peaceful and you didn't have to make the awful decision you had been fearing.

I am sure she is playing happily over the RB - hopefully with her years of experience, she is talking some sense into my daft Paddy!!!

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Baby passed on peacefully in a place where she was most comfortable. You didn't have to make the decision to take her to the vet which is so hard to do. Baby is not suffering anymore from her illness and is watching over you in the spirit world.
