Jasmine is gone.
Sunday, December 06, 2009
I am very sad today as I had to put Jasmine, my cat of over 15 years down yesterday. She had her lung removed 5 years ago and survived cancer. She did so well that I'm grateful for the 5 years after that that I had with her. Recently she spent 2 weeks in the hospital then after a month another few days and then home and not eating or drinking again. I took her to her vet and he wanted to ultrasound her again and he did and her pancreas showed signs of cancer this time but without going in he couldn't be sure. I had decided that if she needed surgery that I would notput her through that. She is only 5 lb. and the surgery would not only be risky but at almost 17 how much time would it buy her anyway. I had to think logically while I was there and my vet who all along has continued to offer support and treatment even when I thought there was none now showed me that there was not much hope. So, sadly I let her go.
