R.I.P. Kitty

We brought Kitty in to the vet around 9:30am, and she was euthanized at about 10:30. I think she knew... she wasn't upset at the vet's at all... she was very calm and did not put up any fuss. She cuddled with us right until the end, and it was over very quickly - she just laid her head down in my arms and went to sleep. I really think she knew.

It's weird... it wasn't exactly sudden, since she's been declining steadily for 1.5 years... but we thought there would at least be some lead time... ya know? Like we thought we'd notice her get weaker over the course of a week or two, and that finally she'd show signs of distress. But no. She was totally fine in the morning (as she had been since forever), but then in the evening she was in distress. The whole thing was so sudden, and I think that's part of what's so upsetting - I was just so not ready :(

I hope I go with as much dignity when the time comes. Dr. Kevorkian is my hero.

Heh yeah, mine too.

There isn't much dignity when we die. In the end, the body fails, and it's messy, and not private, and in the end it's always the same. Cats seem to die with dignity.

I really hope she did. Sometimes she drove us crazy, because she was deaf and yowly, and I would always feel guilty for getting mad at her when she'd wake up the kids. But I really really hope she knew she was really loved.

I think she knew too. I hope you and your family are doing okay.
