I am writing this to let everyone know that my Nacho is now at the Rainbow Bridge.
We took him into our vet once again, she told us that he was about 2 days from being in a coma and gone.. she suspected that he had a very rare disease for cats, Cushing's disease. because he was so old, and frail, it would take quite some time to bring him out of the drop he was in...dehydrated, and sugar levels up, so he would have to be hospitalized once again, just to try to save him before we even deal with the disease. It could take a long time, plus there was no guarantee that he would still make it. the disease would be life long and very complicated for him. since he was suffering so much, I had promised him no more Drs, no more IVs, no more needles, hospitals. I wanted him to rest and find peace. He was so weak that he barely moved as we held him. The dr administered the shot in his leg as my husband held him. He was gone in seconds. No more pain, no more suffering.
He lived 16 wonderful years with me and I am a better person because of his love. He was so special to me, I can't stop the intense pain. but I know, it was best for him and we did the right thing so his suffering could stop. I loved him so so very much.
RIP my Nacho.
thank you everyone for listening.

Bless you - and him. It is never easy but you did what you did with love and compassion. All animals should be so lucky in their owners.

I'm very sorry for your loss of Nacho. And have read your final post before he went, I do think you made the right decision.

However, while I don't know about cats, I do know that dogs can go peacefully at home. My mother had a dog that everybody told her she should have put down, but he was still happy and apparently no trouble. She came downstairs one morning and he was curled in a ball, the way he'd always slept. He'd passed peacefully in his sleep. On line is not necessarily the last word on what to do.
