Having Geet's PTS Wednesday

It's time. I've been force feeding him since March and he hates it. The only foods he'll eat is tuna juice, some cut up liver and if desperate some canned food. Won't eat canned food unless it's middle of the night or i'm not home. He's 19 1/2 years old and has lost energy. End stage kidney disease.

My poor baby. He's also my last link to Razzle who died in July 2012 from the same disease.

I'm having the vet come to my apartment.

Kathy

Razzle and Geets-they left paw prints on my heart. Love you, love you always.

Kathy,

I am so sorry about Geets. We lost our boy Tiger almost 2 years ago to the same disease. It is heartbreaking

You are doing the right thing, and I know how hard it is to make that choice. I'm sending you hugs and prayers.

Oh Kathy my heart goes out to you. I lost my Sabrina the same way just a few months ago and I know it is devastating. I'm glad the vet is coming to your home. I did that and it was so peaceful. Take care of yourself...

I'm sorry Kathy. Geets has lived a good long life and will die knowing he's loved. If only we should all be so blessed. RIP Mr. Geets

This is a poem you had posted a long time ago and I thought it was sad but beautiful...

Quote:
If It Should Be

If it should be that i grow weak
and pain should keep me from my sleep
Then you must do what must be done
For this last battle can't be won.

You'll be sad I understand
Don't let this grief stay your hand
For this day, more than the rest rest
Your love for me must stand the test

We've had so many happy years
What is to come can hold no fears
You'd not want me to suffer so
The time has come, please let me go

Take me where my needs they'll tend
And please stay with me to the end
Hold me firm and speak with me
Until my eyes no longer see

I know in time that you will see
The kindness that you did for me.
Although my tail its last has waved
From pain and suffering I've been saved

Please do not grieve, it must be you
Who has this painful thing to do
We've been so close, we two, these years
Don't let your heart hold back the tears.

Oh, I'm so sorry. But what a long, good life you gave him. I'm glad you're able to have the vet come to your home. Hugs.
