Update On Pickles  

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Well we have decided that it is Pickles time to leave us tomorrow, after not eating and barely drinking, and hiding, we now know its his time. So tomorrow, we will be letting our precious baby go. He has battled alot (as you can read from previous threads, with squamous cell carcinoma and a vaccine related sarcoma), he just hasn't been doing well. I had made him a promise a long time ago that I wouldn't let him suffer. He is down to fur and bone, but to me still has an upbeat spirit, I think he held on longer so we could be better with our decision. I cried alot last week, and prayed for god to take him, but that hasn't happened, so I will now help him tomorrow by taking him to the vet. It may sound strange, but right now I am at some kind of peace with it. I know it's going to be strange not having my buddy around, and I know I am fooling myself to think I won't be crying like a baby, but I promised him I would be strong. I know in my heart that I am doing the right thing for him. I was blessed to have him for 13 or so years, and he will always hold a special place in my heart, and I told him that. I want to Thank everyone here for all the support you have given me through his tough battles. He is a truly amazing buddy. I know there will never be another cat like him. I pray for strength tomorrow, and I know in my heart he will be at peace. I don't doubt any longer that I am doing the right thing, which I had been doing. I know it's time to let go, I will never forget all the joy he has brought me and my family. Just wanted to let you all know, and again, Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I will try to post again soon, when I can. Bless you all. Linda
