I got in a senior cat last week (he is 15 years old) that some of you might remember me posting about. He has a severe spinal cord injury that has made his back legs severly weak and he can't really walk very well. Well, I am getting ready to leave for his vet apt. here in a bit. He won't eat anymore and started throwing up and going to the bathroom on himself late last night. I had to force feed him so he wouldn't get too dehydrated and had to give him three baths because he kept pooping and peeing on himself. I'm so sad. I mean I knew when I took him in that he would probably die in my house but I expected to have more time to prepare myself for this. I know I wanted to do a hospice foster every now and again so they knew they were l ed before they passed on but uhhh, I haven't had nearly enough time to let him go yet. I have no idea what the vet will say but I'm really worried. I desperately need words of wisdom and support to help me get through this guys!!
