Re: OT- need support...loss of a pet
Oh, no, I'm so sorry. I know what you are going through: we had to put our cat to sleep last year (one year ago this month) - he was 14 years old and had been with us since I was 10. To the days leading up to it I cried every time I looked at him. He would look at me back, sigh a little, and start purring. When I finally stopped crying, he stopped purring and spaced out again. (He wasn't quite himself for the last few months before we put him to sleep. I think he knew it was time. He was old after all.)
I know this doesn't take away the pain, but she had a good and long life. You care a lot for her and I'm sure she knew that. I understand your worry about your anxiety getting worse though. I can't really offer any consolation in that regard. I'm sorry, I'm probably not helping at all. I just want you to know that I feel your pain and I hope you'll get through it. Cats are wonderful pets and when they've been around for that long it's like loosing a family member.
