I have been having a TREMENDOUSLY difficult time dealing with not knowing what is going to happen to Angel. The vet thinks she has dementia (she is 19). She will not eat on her own (we have to spoon feed her), she has lost 2 pounds in two months, she drinks a TON of water, and is losing her balance. I am a TOTAL wreck and she isn't even gone yet.
My fiance' told me that I am taking this very hard and she is not even gone....I can relate to you...I really can. I just don't know what will happen if there comes the day here in the near future that we have to put her down. She is eating barely enough to keep a bird alive and isn't as alert as she used to be. Just not a great quality of life anymore
Please hang in there...I am trying to do that, as well. It is also important NOT to neglect other pets....they need your love just as much as they ever did. I started to do this with Ashley (other cat). I would kick her off the bed...off my lap..not talk to her, etc. I am trying to realize that I cannot do that. It isn't her fault...it isn't anyone's fault for Angel. It is the way life deals of the crappy cards. My fiance' told me that God gave her to me....I just don't want to give her back. I do believe we will see them again...the way they were..happy and everything. In the meantime, we just have to heal and believe.
