Now onto my sad news. We had to put my 15 year old cat to sleep tonight. He has joined the Rainbow Bridge. He has been losing weight for a couple of months now and I knew just by his symptoms what the problem was. He has Kidney disease. We had another of our cats put to sleep 2 years ago with this. She was 18. With her we were able to do IVs in her skin a couple of times a week and we got 2 more wonderful years out of her. But Sundance is a very ornery cat and I knew there was no way that he would let us do any kinds of treatment for him. Dylan had cried out tonight that Sundance was falling over when he was walking and when he got on out bed he was wobbling like a drunk. Then he sat and pooped right on the bed. I looked at Dylan and at DH ( Scott) and I said it is time. he can not go on like this. So we called the vet and it was a little bit past office hours so we had to pay emergency fee as well. He is in a better place. I held him while Scott and the boys watched as the Vet put the injection in him. We are very sad to have seen him go but he led a good life. He was born on our bed March 24, 1993.

Shelleen, congrats on the award, you really deserve it.
My condolences for your cat. Our dog joined the spirit world last month, so I can relate to how you feel. He too was old and not the best health. At least where they are now they feel no pain. I'm sure my spirit German shepherd is chasing your spirit cat up a spirit tree. :)

Sorry to hear about your cat, especially so since you knew him from the moment of birth!! I know it was hard, but you did the right thing for him.

Take it easy this weekend,
