A little while ago I found a lump on her neck, then a few days later another one had appeared on her forehead. Took her in, turned out to be cancer.
Tried some medicine to keep her comfortable but she expressed her dislike strenuously. She hasn’t eaten in days, only drinking a little water and she’s definitely gotten lethargic. She was only 6lbs at full size (she’s just a tiny little thing), has lost weight and I don’t want her to suffer any longer.
So today after work I’ll take her in to be put to sleep. And then I have to rush over to school to pick up my stepson right away, I’m sure he’ll notice that I’m upset. His mom has talked to him about it last week and I had a discussion with him this weekend - he knows the cat is sick, she’s had a good life and we don’t want her to be in pain. This is my responsibility as a pet owner, it sucks but it’s the last dose of comfort I can give her.
