Hi Katie. I'm so sorry to hear about your loss of little Jo. I lost my 6-year-old cat a week ago. I also made the difficult decision to have her euthanized, and I completely understand how hard this time is. I also keep wondering whether I should have waited longer, but I do believe they somehow let you know that they have had enough. Losing them at any age is awful, but when they are so young it is very hard to accept, and all their funny little rituals keep springing into your mind.
It is hard also when you feel others don't understand. So many people think along the lines of "it's only a pet". She wasn't just a pet, she was a cherished member of your family, and it is totally acceptable that you need time to grieve. I have found this forum a godsend, as it gives you a place to pour out your feelings where everyone understands and will not judge you. Sending lots of love and prayers to you, Mary-Jane x
