I am so sorry for your loss and share it with you. I had to put my precious cat down four days ago. He, too, had gotten so sick and was actively dying. But my guilt is compounded by the fact that I couldn’t go with my husband to the vet because I was so upset I could barely breathe. I wasn’t there for the little guy when he took his last breath. Oh, I hope he forgives me for that.
I did the same thing. I was just in such pain.
I couldn’t bring myself to be in the room when the vet put our guy down. I just couldn’t do it. Like you, I hope he forgives me. I’ve had a hard time forgiving myself.
I'm sure he already has.
God bless, LibSnubber.
Reading this thread brings back the raw emotions I felt when we had to put our fur baby to sleep. But, there is a sense of fellowship too, because so many others know and understand.
Just remember all the love that was received by your pet and the love you received in return, and you will know beyond doubt that he knew you loved him.
