Losing my buddy

This is Missy. She is 16 years old. I took this picture this summer when she was losing weight, but otherwise doing okay. Today is Mother's Day and I am keeping vigil. She is losing the battle for life and we have no idea what is killing her. The vet did tests and they came back fine a couple of months ago. I gave her a steroid pill this morning and she ate about a teaspoon of salmon and drank about a tablespoon of chicken broth. If she is still alive tomorrow, then I will take her in to the vet. It is time and I am finally able to let her go. I have been waiting for her to give me a sign that she is through. I think today she is coming through loud and clear. All the other pets know it too. Lucy was up on the cushion in the window with her for a while. Jack just came in to check on her. Tigger is staying outside.
Cubedog: I hope you know just how intently I am sharing your pain. Momma Kitty is trying like hell to take up Mz.Kitty's space, but just falls short. I love her for trying tho.

I am so sorry. This is a bad time for my friends with pets. Becca of "Rebecca Unpublished" just lost her beloved pet as well. My heart goes out to you and Missy. She was a beautiful girl.

I'm horribly sorry - I can't even imagine going through this - they grace us with their presence and love for such a short time, before it's the time to leave. Know that she'll be waiting for you at the bridge when it's your time and know that she knows you love her immensely.
