I had Squeaker the cat put to sleep yesterday.
I wasn't prepared for it.
She had been losing weight but I thought as she was an oldergirl she was probably diabetic.
She could have been, but she also had kidney failure.
The vet said he could maybe give her 4 more monthsbut they wouldn't have been easy months.
Squeaker went gently to sleep hearing my voiceand feeling my hand stoking her.
It was very hard butI couldn't help but think
how we as a society allow veterinarians to be far more
compassionate than we allow doctors to be.
