The Moon has fallen for the final time

As I posted before Tsuki was dying I thought I would have a bit more time today at least a few more hours of normalcy but at 5 am or so she started having seizures. I ran into my room and waited for them to stop knowing what was happening and knowing there was little chance of her handling the drive so I had to wait for my vet to open. When the seizure stopped I picked her up and held her the rest of the time till I took her to the vet where I continued to hold her. In my heart I never wanted to let go. To be honest to say I'm depressed would be a major understatement. I felt guilty having to wait that long too I wished I could do more.

I lost one of the first pets I ever truly owned today. I feel like I did the right thing and somehow guilty at the same time like I should have been able to do something more.

Her passing is made even sadder by the fact that her and Sera seemed to be bonded to each other. I keep looking around my apartment and thinking I saw a little black fur ball but deep inside I know it's all in my head. From the moment I got home I thought I saw her but it was all in my mind.

Rest in Peace little Tsuki

Thanks only happy I was able to stay with her till the end at least. My sister kept telling me "it's too painful to stay till they pass" and all I could tell her was "I'd rather suffer horrible pain for five minutes than regret it for ten year" since I never stopped regretting leaving my dog before she passed.

I'm so very sorry, for what you had to go through. I think you did an incredible thing by adopting her, caring and loving her as you did, and gave her the final gift of letting her go peacefully, the most difficult part of pet ownership is the final farewell. I hope you take comfort that Tsuki had a great life while she was with you and Sera, and had a very happy, content kitty life. She is in peace now.

Sending you a big warm hug for the bravery and courage you had, and wish you peaceful moments during this dreadful time. My heartfelt condolences to you and your household. Pets to Sera, too.

Oh I am so sorry for your loss of Tsuki. In her short time though she was a lucky kitten to have you and Sera to love and be loved by. I am sure Sera will miss he sister too and I hope that her need to be with you will help you to get comfort as well.

I am so very sorry for your loss, you did the right thing by staying with her, I stayed with my Oliver (first time for me) also, I would not have him be by himself at this time, I wanted my voice to be the voice that he heard, it was very difficult, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
