    vet assured me that clark is totally out of it..during the seizures and that it will take a few minutes after for his brain to rewire....when he starts having more symptoms ..then we review

    My cat is only 4 1/3 years old.

    So he has at least 11 to 15 years to go.

    And if I am killed in the line of duty and he outlives me then the lady upstairs has promised to take him in.

    I don't feel the same attachment to dogs (or horses) as I do to cats.

    While I would indeed spend several thousand $$'s on a cat, I would not do that on a dog or horse.

    Dogs and horses are a dime a dozen. You can even adopt them from rescue organizations for free.

    Rabbit pellets are not nearly as bad as dog or cat sh!t or pee.

    Rabbits are food; not pets...

    I recently had to put my dog down. His body was as healthy as a racehorse but he had a massive stroke.

    Not only do I still miss him but it ripped off the scab from my other dog's loss.

    I certainly sympathize with the decisions you will be forced to make. God grant you strength.

    it is funny what we tell ourselves...my dog is healthy but for the massive stroke....clark is healthy but for the suspected tumor
    i had a friend just put down her 22 yr old blind and deaf cat...she let it go way too long but that was her decision..

    I've watched many dogs grow old and had to put several dogs down. It never gets easier. The only good thing is that after a while, after the grief is no longer raw, you remember that friend when he was in his prime. I don't know what that all means, but I know I don't want to do without dogs in my life. I'm sure I'd feel the same way about a beloved cat. Hang in there, Bones.
