Sid is gone

We took her to the animal shelter this morning because we couldn’t get in to see our vet until Thursday. She had basically stopped eating and drinking, and the color of her urine indicated that her kidneys were shutting down. She was falling when she tried to get onto or off of things, and was doing a scary panting thing whenever we picked her up.

Everyone at the shelter was very nice and gave us as much time as we needed before, during, and afterwards. They had to give her a tranquilizer because she fought them for the injection, but after that she could barely hold her head up. We pet her and comforted her until she was gone, and then held each other and just sobbed.

Sid, wherever you are, we love you very much and are so grateful that you shared our lives, even if it was just for a little while.

  1. I’m so sorry, guys. I’m glad I got to meet her – and at least she isn’t in pain anymore. She had a good life, thanks to you two. I’m so sorry.

  2. Our vet told us once that animals, especially cats, live for the moment. You had many wonderful moments with Sid and you let her go when the moments became hard for her. That is incredibly unselfish and a beautiful thing to do for a friend.

    I wish you two well.
