Had to put my cat down today... :(

Monday, August 15, 2011



I had to put my cat, Coleman, down this morning. She was 11 years old. She was very sick and suffering and I know I did the right thing. I even thought I was good with it, until I got to the vet's office and had to hand her over. emoticon

I found her December 28, 1999. I was out on patrol, driving around at 2 a.m. I saw this collapsed tent on the side of the road. I stopped to check it out. There were several items in the tent. When I dumped the stuff out, out dropped this tiny little kitten that fit in my palms. I named her Coleman, cuz I found her in a tent.

I took her home, fed her some tuna, and she became part of the family. She was a funny, strange little cat. She would play fetch with her toy mouse and sit on command. I'm gonna miss her... emoticon

    My heart breaks for you! I have cats and dogs. They are all my fur babies! I have had deal with the loss and I had to take my very first fur baby Shelby in to get put down. Even though it is best for the animal our hearts still ache. You gave Coleman a wonderful life and have fun and happy memories you will always cherish.
    HUGS to you!

    I've had to make that choice a few times too, and I know how hard it is, even when you know it's the right thing to do. Your sweet Coleman knew every day of her life that she was loved and cherished. That's really all she needed, and that she takes with her. Bright blessings and warm hugs to you in this difficult time.

    I am so sorry about Coleman. It's so hard to do the right thing when it means losing our fur kids. But of course you did what was best for her. Big hugs.

    Wow! It's been a long time since I've blogged. That might explain partly why I've gained for the last two months. emoticon

    I'm so sorry for your loss. The death of a pet is very hard. You made me think back to when we had to put our cat to sleep a few years ago. I could not stop crying as we stood there in the vet's office. Again, I'm so sorry you've had to go through this. But you're right, you made the right decision. It's not good to make an animal suffer just because we'll miss them when they're gone.
