My DH has taken our ginger cat, Sandy to the vets to be put to sleep We are having a terrible time with our beloved cats recently...we lost George our oldest cat last month.
Sandy went missing months ago and despite searching for him and registering him with all the local animal shelters, we couldn't find him.
Out of the blue we got a call from the local RSCPA, saying they had found our cat, that he was sick and could we pick him up from them and pay a relative large bill (would of been 3 times the cost at a private vets, so thank goodness for that) for the treatment he had received.
Sadly we learnt that he had a cancerous tumour which couldn't be treated, he needed tablets for the rest of his life to stop his lungs filling up with fluid.
He was been home with us a few weeks but sadly his breathing got worse and yesterday he stopped eating and we knew it was time to take him to put him out of his pain.
