Having to say goodbye sucks

Today I took Grimjack aka Greyman to the vet. He has had his tounge hanging out for a week and drooling excessively. Today there was blood hanging out so to the vet he went. Poor boy has bone cancer. Today I had to decide what to do after he was given a pain shot. He came home with me for one last night of loving and tomorrow its going to be hell for me. We've had Grimmy for 14 years -Daryl rescued him from a dumpster to live the life of luxury here with us. I'm worried about what will happen to Shenanigans they have been together all this time. Hopefully Neme will help fill the gap.

Oh, this is so hard and so sad. I am facing a similar choice. my cat if definitely sick, and her lumps are growing. I am scared to take her to the vet. Keep postponing it each week.

So sorry, Kimmie darling. Wish I was closer to take you out to lunch and spin with you. Take satisfaction with the fact that you gave him all those happy years.

Oh Kim - I'm so sorry. Having met them - and knowing they are such darlings - I know how much you are going to miss him. Take solace in the fact that you gave him a wonderful life. I wish I could be there to help you through this.
Big hugs!
