My Mathilda has gone to the Rainbow Bridge

  1. It was the hardest thing I have ever done, but after a difficult night I took her to the vet again this morning and had her put to sleep. I was holding her in my arms when she died, I could feel it when her poor little heart stopped beating. It was very peaceful. The vet---who was crying right along with me---said it was the best. most loving thing to do for my baby. I am very sad but also I feel relieved that her suffering is over. The whole way over to the vet's office I cried and argued with myself about it but now I am glad I did it. I cannot say enough about how compassionate everyone at the vet hospital was---their gentle care made it so much easier.

    She may have responded to the new heart med and the increased dose of diuretic the vet started her on last night but in my heart I feel it would only have bought her a few more days or weeks. I believe she was tired of being sick and in her own kitty way was ready to go.

    Good bye, Kitchen Hog. I'll miss you but I'll see you again.:heart:
