Just need a handhold. Vet due in 2.5hours to put my old cat to sleep. The fire is lit. The other two cats and I are holding vigil but I still feel alone. There were no possible earlier appointments even if I took her in and she doesn't need that stress.

The very best way to go, safe and warm with those she loves. I'm sorry it's so hard for you. flowers

Thank you. She went on her own terms, an hour before the vet was due to arrive. I am kind of glad. The house feels emptier already.

Oh how hard for you - I hope you can find comfort from your other cats. I'm glad she was able to just slip away. flowers

The house always feels weird afterwards. There's a cat-shaped hole in the universe.

I'm sending you a hug as I know you'll need one. I had my boy put to sleep two weeks ago and I know it's such a hard decision. Today won't be easy but later on you'll know you did the right thing. rip little one.l

I'm glad she slipped away peacefully. Be kind to yourself. It's hard to lose them.

"There's a cat-shaped hole in the universe."

This sums up the way I feel right now.
Had to say goodbye to my girl on Tuesday. I found her laid on the neighbour's garden unable to move her back legs 😢
Rushed her to the vets and there was nothing they could do, spinal injury and likely internal injuries too, so I had to let her go. She was only 6.
Hugs to you OP, it's very hard. Take comfort in the fact that you were there at the end.
I have another cat and a dog, but it still feels like something is missing.

Oh I'm sorry OP, it's so sad when they go.
