so sad I am so a fread of this day, and I also know that it will come soon Thinking of this I can't stop crying, even I know she is still here... today ... Have no idea, how I be able to continiue everyday life without her
Oh lord, how lovely but so sad too. We haven't lost a cat thankfully but we had to make the decision to help one of our beloved guinea pigs, Waffle, over the bridge 2 years ago and the decision still haunts me, I feel so guilty, that poem did help.
Unconditional love has a price and that price is that we make the decision that they can not make for themselves, to end their suffering and comfort them as they pass from this life to the next.
I rank Samantha's passing in my arms right up with the loss of my parents, that I had to make the painful decision to end her suffering and her life still brings tears to my eyes.
But it was the only decision that love allowed.
I've read this poem several times over the last few days. It makes me cry every time. Four days ago I had to make the painful decision to have Ziggy put to sleep and even though I question that decision at times, I know in my heart it was the right thing to do.
