    queenb I am so sad to read about BooBoo. It is a difficult decision to make but one that we make with only love in our hearts.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you.


    Eastcoastmom The toy has some meaning to Cheyenne. Maybe a memory or smell or could it hurt her ears when it squeaks?

    Thanks, everyone. I knew I had made the right choice when the first shot (sedative) started to work, BooBoo eyes suddenly looked brighter, and as her body relaxed she started purring and seemed more attentive for a minute; I got to rub the tummy one more time too.. I have to think that there was enough painkiller effect to make her actually feel good for a minute. Poor old kitty...but I am glad she had a better few minutes at the last. And I gave her all the greek yogurt and cheddar she would eat before leaving, since she had been off treats for a while.

    About the squeaky toy...I believe that because it's making a noise, she must think it's alive, at least the strange behavior makes me think so. It might have the just right pitch tosound like a baby animal or whatever.
    I have found the Truth and it doesn't make sense.

    Queenb....my heart aches for you - it brings back similar memories to me. It's a heart-wrenching experience, but as you noticed, you can now know that it was your love for her that enabled you to release her from her suffering. Been there, done that. Remember the love you two shared, the happy times, the love and the laughter. She was very blessed to have you as her caretaker and friend in this life!

    Queenb I'm so sorry for your loss.

    QueenB - sending love and prayers for healing. I understand of what a heart breaking time this is for you.
    The lovely furry ones touch our lives, bring us such joy, the pain of loosing them is a forever pain.
    Even though we Know we did what was correct for them, that pain is a monster. Have time to heal.
    Then remember all the loving memories. Hugs

    So sorry for your loss, queenb. It's never easy letting go, even when you know you're doing the right thing
