PLEASE help; wasting away-what are we missing? - Page 2

so sorry to hear about the kitty, RIP sweet Ripple ! Hugs to you!

I am so sorry for your loss. I have been there. When my 15 year old cat, Petunia, slowly stopped eating. We searched and searched for what was wrong and there were no clues. I force-fed her and watched her wither away. And like you, I had to make that horrible decision to end her suffering. It was so frustrating not being able to figure it out and help her.

May you find comfort in the memories of your sweetie.

I am very sorry that nothing more could be done for Ripple and I know you will miss her terribly. Take comfort in the fact that you loved each other and that you did all the right things to protect her and to prevent her suffering any more.

I am so sorry for your loss - I saw your thread earlier but had no advice. I've been thru something similar with a rabbit - travelled hither and yon to find help o no avail. Take care of yourself and think of all the wonderful times you have shared with her!!! (((Tiffany)))

I'm so sorry - you did everything you could for Ripple. In the end, you offered her the ultimate kindness and took the suffering away from her. As others have said, although times must be so hard right now, focus on the wonderful times and love that you shared with her.

My thoughts are with you at this difficult time.

I am so sorry for your loss. I am thinking of you. You were so good to her and made her life wonderful.

She wasn't even able to blink effectively; the vet had to put moistening drops in her eyes. She has lost another six tenths of a pound since the 29th and was only 4.4 pounds today.
With no other options available to her, no improvement in her condition and no way to ease her suffering we did the only thing we thought we could and had her put to sleep. We buried her in my parents' rose garden this evening.
Thanks everyone for your thoughts and vibes. I know we did everything we could for her and although I'm OK with it I REALLY miss her a LOT.
Boy, this is hard.

I'm so very sorry for your loss. I have been following your thread, but haven't really commented because I was in a similar situation and had to put Molly to sleep within a week of her first test. She also took a sudden drastic turn for the worst. I didn't want you to lose hope. I completely understand what you are going through along with the uncertainty of not really knowing what went wrong. If you ever need to talk, please feel free to PM me.

RIP Ripple.

Condolences on the loss of Ripple. What a heartbreaking time you have had! She is at peace, now.

I am really sorry to hear that your kitty didn't get better. A few years ago I lost peanut, she was 8, then last winter we lost two little kittens. All three of them are buried next to each other by a big tree next to our house. I cried worse for the kittys than I did at some peoples funerals I have gone to. {{{{{{{{{{{}}}}}}}}}}}}}} these are hugs for you, I know how much it hurts to go through this stuff. Tom
