Ramblings of a Maineiac
|Posted on February 3, 2016 at 11:35 AM|
Our wonderful cat, Alfie., left us last week. Following a period of declining health due to kidney problems, he stopped eating and drinking and barely moved. With the sage advice of his vet, we decided that it was time to end his sufferring.
Choosing to euthanize a family member, albeit a furry one, is not easy. The one consolation is that Alfie is now pain free and perhaps enjoying the company of our family pets that preceded him, Puffy, Raisin,Coco, and Georgie. I can imagine them running around wherever faithful pets go after they leave the bounds of earth.
Alfie's departure is particularly difficult at our age as it is doubtful that we will adopt another furry friend. Who knows maybe in a few weeks we will just have to visit the animal shelter,,,and maybe fall in love all over again.
Goodbye, loyal friend!
