Goodbye my three legged mate :( you will be missed
Hi every one,
I am very sad today as I had my dear old Tom cat put down.
I know I had just finished saying how he was ok & everything in the last post. I think I must have jinxed him or something. I should know better by now!
When Doug came home early this morning he found Tom couldn't move & was having trouble breathing. I found out when I got up to feed Lilly at 5am. So I decided to stay with my little mate after I had finished up with Lilly & then at 7.30 I got him to our vet. Kim is an awesome vet & he was really understanding when I brought Tom in to him. I could have taken Tom to an afterhours clinic about half an hour away, but I knew that it was Tom's time to go & didn't feel like taking him somewhere where no one knew him or his history. Kim was really nice & made me feel a whole lot better about what I had to do, even though I pretty well knew it had to be done. I got to stay with Tom right to the end & Kim didn't rush me out the door even though he had patients waiting.
So now we are a one pet family - poor Smudge, I guess she's going to feel a little lonely for a bit. Em wants to get a puppy now, specifically a Labrador (she's been hanging around me too long!) I have to keep explaining that we need a fenced yard first. So I guess we'll have an interesting week or two ahead of us.
Take care everyone & give your pets an extra pat from me xoxoxoxoxoxo
