     Saturday April 11, 2020 I made the difficult decision that it was “time” for my Sassy to be released from the 12 medications and iv subq fluids every day. They were not working and just making her miserable. 

     She had elevated kidney and pancreas levels and had stopped eating. When we got up

that morning she was in pain, shaking, stumbling and staring out into space. I gave her pain

meds until the shaking stopped. I held her for an hour and talked to her before the doctor came to the house. She was never one that wanted to be cuddled, but that morning she just relaxed in my arms like she knew….. 

     I am at peace with my decision, but what I am struggling with is the fact that she is gone. She was by my side for all of her 13 years and since the Coronavirus it was 24/7. Everything screams Sassy is not here.

I'm so sorry for your loss, I had the same kind of week. Even with three other cats in the house. I was actually getting pissed at them cause they didn't seem to notice. 

When my Tiger started shaking and breathing fast I didn't know what was going on. I had given him Sub Q and pain meds - but he threw up too.

I had to go to emergency vet and I always wanted it done at home when it had to happen but it didn't happen that way and I wouldn't let him spend any more hours feeling like that. Home vets weren't picking up the phone Easter weekend.

I'm glad yours was able to be calm and at home.

But still's a big hole in the heart, I know

Candice-So sorry for your loss as well. Yes, I was fortunate to be able to have someone come to the house. My Vet said I couldn't be with her because of the Coronavirus. It was very important for me to be with her.
