Today we needed to make the hardest decision in any pet owners life. To put our beloved cat to sleep. We adopted him about 10yrs ago after his last owner abandoned him. The vet estimated he was about 16 or 17 years old. We will never know for sure.
As soon as he came into our life he became the king of the house. He slept on us, he tried to steal our food, but we loved him and he loved us back. Being a siamese he talked to us and purred so loud he could wake you from the next room.
I won't go into the gory details but his health has been going down hill and the vet felt that any of the possibilities would be life ending and he would be in pain. It was a hard decision, but we put in to sleep rather than have him suffer any more. He will be in our hearts forever.
