Two days ago, I put my Duchess, a 19 year old domestic long hair female, to Rest In Peace.
She was suffering from kidney disease, losing weight (down to 6.5 lbs dorm 10.2), and finally I witnessed her crumpling to the ground and not being able to get back up.
i put her on the bed, watched her carefully. She looked to be having focal seizures, with her front limbs stiffening up, her mouth pinched, her whiskers forward, and pupils fixed and dilated.
I knew what I had to do to end her struggling and suffering. I made an appointment with her in home vet for the next evening, feeling like I could help her through the next day.
i spent that night and the next day on the bed with her, cuddling and loving her, and vice versa.
She was put to sleep on Thursday,June 25, 2020. I feel like I’ll never get over it.
Any feedback is welcome.
