Hello, obsidianfire. I am terribly sorry to hear that you had to put your cat down because of pancreatitis. I hope I'm not upsetting you by talking about this, but I am curious to know what exactly did your vet do for treatment? Was your cat put on a special diet? How long was he sick? My cat, Izzy, was diagnosed with pancreatitis about a year ago but on a diet specific for pancreatitis, he is doing very well, and recent blood work is all back in the normal range. Do you have another cat or are you planning on getting another one? The thought of losing one's dear pet is devastating, but I can't think of not having one--or two--to share my life. My Izzy is one of two who have been together since birth, but should the time come when I won't have him any more, I will have to get another cat to keep Pinky (and I) company. Again, I am so sorry that you had to put him down and my thoughts are with you as you grieve. My very best to you. Barbara, Izzy, and Pinky

Fellow cat lovers, those of you who've shared your sympathy & your advice.....this morning I had to put my sweet baby down. It was done peacefully and gently and he will be laid to rest beneath my hydrangea bush. I miss him and I wish there had been more I could have done. My vet is the sweetest kindest person and I know that if there had been ANYTHING more to do, she would have done it. May he be whole and healthy and waiting for me in heaven someday.
