I have no idea what I would do without all of your love and support. You are always there for me.

First, I think the maybe was in my mind and my husbands this weekend. we spent a lot of time with Jessie and he kept looking out the windown wanting to go out. we used to take him out in the summer and let him roll in the grass when we were with him. so, we let him out 4 times on Sun. Everytime he asked we let him got out for a couple of minutes. He perked right up, he really loved it. but got tired very quick and we would bring him in. then i held him a lot and loved on him. I think he had a good day.

I talked to him and cried and got a lot of things out. just held him as tight as i could.

When we got to the vets yesterday, i took him out of his carrier and held him the whole time they were getting ready, even when i signed the papers. I just kept kissing him and saying i love you, over and over.

It wasn't long after he went into surgery that the vet called, and said he he had throat cancer. a real bad cancer. just before the voice box. I asked if he was awake, and he said he was just coming to, but still had the IV in. I wanted to be there to hold him so much. but i told the vet to put him down right then before he woke up.I didn't want him to wake up in pain and then have to go through  the whole thing again.

He showed me the ex-rays when i went in. this is a very fast growing cancer, so he didn't have it long. and it was so bad in 3 places that it almost closed his whole throat off.  and a bunch of new ones starting to grow. I think he said 2 types of cancer, but can't remember. Also, thats why he didn't talk to me like he used to. it was like a person whispering.


The house is so empty without him here. Even with the other critters.
He will always be in my heart. He is my heart cat.

Thanks to your advice I will try very hard to think of the time we had together with love and laughter.

your being here for me has meant more than you will ever know. what a great bunch of friends. I love you all.
Jessie is now out of pain and at the Bridge chasing butterflys and playing in the sun.

That was a beautiful tribute to your wonderful boy, Trudy.

He will visit you in your dreams and make you happy again.

You sound at peace with your decision for Jessie. It must have been bittersweet to have confirmation that there was something seriously wrong - and I hope it made your decision for him just a bit "easier" (although it's never easy). You will have lots of sad days, but before long I'm sure you will find yourself smiling at a memory of Jessie when he was well. You did the right thing for him and, yes, I believe that he is now healed, whole and healthy once again doing whatever it was that he most loved to do.

Prayers to you and your DH

It's always the hardest thing to do, but you really did right by him -- not letting him wake up first. That was all for him. He knows that.

Trudy - sending you hugs & love & comfort as you grieve your heart boy.  I salute your love & courage in allowing him to slip away without making him wake up in pain - he is watching and knows your love and thoughts were with him as he passed to the bridge.

Take care of your sorrowing parents, Jessie boy and whisper in their hearts to ease their pain.

Oh Trudy -- I don't know what to say except it sounds like you made the oh so hard decision and you did it for him.  I know the days ahead will be difficult especially since he was your "heart" cat but you know you did the right thing.  Hopefully he is now running around the Rainbow Bridge young and happy and healthy again.  And know that many are thinking about you.   Kiss

I've been trying to write on this all day. I did light a candle for Jessie . I love and miss him so much right now.
I keep looking for him during the day. i went to buy him a present yesterday. All the things you do, etc.
I am praying he has a wonderful first Christmas at the Bridge.
Bless you all- You're babies are in my thoughts too.
