Mom came into my room early thismorning. Today was the day we were going to put down one of our cats. We've had midnight around for as long as I can remember. My sister and I used to dress her up in bonnets and push her around in a stroller.. XD Lately though, she'd been sick and lost her zest for life. She was senile and deaf- had back arthritis and forgot what she was doing half the time. A few days ago, she was puking up bile and blood all around her sleeping area... so we knew that she had to go. She went for the big sleep. We were there with her-- she felt the pain of the needle going into her and cried out. There wasn't anything more that the vet could've done for her though. It's hard to think that a friend who'd been around forever would one day just go away. Maybe it'll sound stupid... but I'm very sad today. I had to put my 20 year old cat to sleep. Now it's just Sheeba and me... and I fear the day that I'll have to do the same for her. I don't want to have to see them go. everyone and everything has an expiry date though.
