Below is a picture of Ginger who I've had since I was in grade school. She is about 13 years old and when I went home today, my mom informed me that she will probably take her to the vet to be put down, next week. She is sick...with diabetes and her back legs don't function too well. She also has very glazy eyes and can't hear, see, or walk too well. Her coat is also very unkept now and she has terrible black ear wax. She still makes it to the liter box that is all the way downstairs and eats great but drinks excessivly (which means she might have kidney failure). But my parents still think she might be suffering and I definently don't want that to happen to Ginger at all. My sisters bofriend is a vetranarian and he took one look at her and said she didn't look well. But, it's just so sad to see this happen...I wish she'd pass in her sleep. I'm sure that'd be easier on everyone...my mom is not looking forward to the vet trip. Ginger is one out of 5 cats and she is the only one that purrs and purrs when she gets on the vet table. Makes it even more sad. Guess I'm just looking for some support through this tough time. She's been a part of my life FOREVER and has been such a great cat....but we don't want to see her suffer anymore than we think she might be suffering already. Thanks for listen, guys!
