My beloved Logan

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
When I 1st went & got my bundle of joy I was told by the owners he was the runt of the little, only 2 wks later when his eyes changed did I realize they had given him away too soon. About a month after I was severly injured at work & spent a year at home recovery, Due to this my baby & I became very close. For 12 yrs he was my baby, no matter how old he was he never acted it. About 3 months ago I noticed that within a week he had lost alot of weight, fearful I too him to an emergency vet. I did not expect the terrible diagnosis I got, liver cancer, no warning, no true signs, he had had a check up only a very months ago. Although we tried everything, even chemo, my poor baby wasn't strong enough to go on. Only 2 weeks after finding out he had cancer we had to do the hardest thing I've ever done. We were there when the put him to sleep, while I am grateful he was no longer in pain, I miss him terribly. He will always have a very special place in my heart.

Always the most heart-wrenching decision to make, is the decision to sign that slip of paper and have your cat put to sleep. The vet does not offer that slip of paper lightly, for there are consequences if he does. Please know that you did the right thing, chemo is very hard on a cat's system and it sounds to me like Logan had compromised health issues from the start.

He is out of pain, and now yours begins. Let it take you down the journey of grief, because out the other side is the path of healing and someday you will be reunited with Logan, and he will head bump you and purr in your ear to thank you for your selfless act you performed for him.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Logan sounds as though he was a wonderful and true companion, and you had to make a very hard decision. I have had to make that same decision several times and it breaks my heart every time. But please rest assured that your vet would not have recommended it if it wasn't the right thing to do.

I'm so sorry about your loss. It hurts like heck. You gave Logan a wonderful life and it was his time. You did the right thing by letting him go. It's been 10 days since I lost my beloved kitty, George. It still hurts but I'm more at peace now. I just wish I had more time to prepare for the unexpected loss. He was only 7. Logan is still with you in spirit and you will join him one day. Take care.

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. Logan sounds like such a great cat and a wonderful companion. But it sounds like you gave him 12 wonderful years, and he gave you those wonderful years too that you will never forget. He will always be a part of you, but now he is healthy once again knowing that you did everything you could.

I'm sorry to hear of your loss. I believe that from what you said the Vet helped you make the right choice albeit one of the most difficult. I too have lost my beloved Shadow on May 1, 2003 and he was to me like Logan was to you. Logan will find happiness at Rainbow Bridge and hopefully he will be playing with my Shadow.
