charlie was euthanized today.

Carol  ·  Nov. 1, 2011

both vets felt that she had been given everything possible for her to start to feel better...but she just continued to deteriorate further. i went in to see her this morning because i still couldn't decide between feeding tube and euthanization. charlie was head shy and cringing and very upset..she had had enough of feeling horrible and ongoing and unsuccessful medical intervention. she would have hated the feeding tube and there was still no guarantee that it would have changed the outcome because there was some kind of underlying reason why she was having such a difficult time in fighting off this virus.

and to be perfectly honest, this time around, i was simply unwilling to risk ending up on the wrong road again.
rest in peace charlie, i hope i did the right thing for you.




Charlie was a sweet girl. Quiet but loved her pets, food and treats.
She is going to be missed in the cat area.


Don't doubt yourself, Carol. This was the kindest thing for Charlie even it was tough to do.


So very sorry about the loss of Charlie. She is at peace now and no longer in pain.
