Oh, Nala's Mom ~ My heart goes out to you. I remember the flood of emotion when we brought our little Buddy home almost 6 years ago. I hope and pray that you will soon find comfort in knowing that Nala will never leave home again. She's with you always, even if it is in a different form. We are just facing the final days, maybe hours, with our 16 & 1/2 year-old Bengal Cat, T.J. (my avatar). It has been an excruciating few weeks, for all of us. He was such a strong, healthy cat all of his life until a few weeks ago when he began having seizures and was diagnosed with CRF (early stage kidney failure) which was not related to the seizures. With each seizure he has gotten progressively more wobbly and unsteady. We now have him on anti-seizure and pain meds to last until my niece can come to our house to assist him on his final journey. I realized tonight that the sooner she can come, the better. Although his spirit is strong, this terrible cancer has won the battle. It's just too strong to fight. This will be the first time I have had to make the decision to help one of my animals cross over. It's an agonizing thing, and my heart goes out to anyone who has been in this position. I've been posting here for almost six years, and I have always told people that they gave their furries the greatest possible gift by assisting them when they needed help. I thought I knew what I was talking about. Until now. Now I know first hand the agony you faced, and my heart truly breaks for you. May your happy memories come flooding back to you, and may you catch a glimpse of your beautiful Nala at the Bridge, young, healthy, and vital once more. xoxoxo
