I don't know how I'm going to say goodbye. It's so so hard
would be really appreciated.
Marvin and I had a cat named Doc. He was our !st cat as a couple.We had Doc for about a year or 2, when one afternoon I came in from work, i found
Doc hanging off the window seal in the living room in convulsions.I grabbed him and drove to the vet. he checked him out, he said what was wrong ,but I can't remember now, he sent us home with meds.Well I thought he was
going to be fine, so I put him on the bed in the guest room, bless his heart, i don't think he ever got up again! Finally by the end of the week, I was in there with him and his 3rd eyelid kept coming down over his eyes. Marvin came home and saw me totally beside myself. He said, "Monique, that cat
is living for you" And with that said, I really thought about how selfish I
had been and how he was right! The more I thought the more the morning
couldn't get there fast enough. I didn't go with Marvin to the vet, I thought I couldn't handle it. I went to work...when I pulled up a few hrs. later, Marvin had put him in a boot box wrapped tight w/duct tape. he said nothing would
be able to get in it. He had buried it him already and was almost through
with wooden cross w/ DOC ingraved on it. Marvin looked up at me and said,"
I have buried my own father, but this was the hardiest thing I've ever done" I cried for days but I knew in my heart that Doc was so much beter off!
I am so sorry, you have to go through this...My sister went in with her dogs, at different times, she said they laid their head down on her lap, and she pet them and talked to them until, she said she would always go in and comfort them.You are in my prayers!
