SoSo, our 12 yr old feline has Squamous Cell Carcinoma. It has given her a death sentence of 1-3 mos. She is on medications and comfortable. We opted out of the radical jaw removal and radiation/chemo, because it will not lengthen life and the cancer cells just rapidly grow right back. She is with her three brothers and feeds thru a tube, purrs when fed and enjoys being brushed. Why should we take her away from what little enjoyment she has just for convience sake? We're okay with the time it takes with her, we love her. I wouldn't kill my child.

I love the fact that she keeps going into the rooms that we are in. She was like in a closet or under a coffee table, however, the past few days she has attempted to at least be near us. Could be her way of saying "It's okay, I'm ready" maybe.
That could be I have little vet tech and animal behavior experience and from what I learned cats will most likely hide when their time is coming. They prefer to be alone for some reason.
Well, today has made our decision. :( She is definitely is ready. She got sick a little from her meds last night and has made a drastic change for the worse in the past 48 hours. I can barely type. Hubby went to work but won't be there you know?
I'm sorry to hear that. Losing a pet is hard to do they become like children to us.
I know. Thank you. I'm so sad. I want her to take her last breath here. I don't want her knowing we took her away from her home and to a place she loathed to take her final breath. That is just killing me inside.
