Fur Baby - REBEL

Our 15 year old fur baby Rebel is going over the Rainbow Bridge Monday.  Her Vet is out of town till Monday.. She is in no pain.  Just having a hard time getting up and down, still can't hold her urine or poop. The meds she was on has quit working. She is blind in one eye, and cannot hear. If you remember me telling about the trip to see the vet awhile back.. Where she was all limp and when we arrived she perked up like nothing was the matter.. Dr Kelly gave her some meds and they did work for awhile. She is just going downhill fast. I don't know the other 2 vets in the office, and Dr Kelly is so great with her. I can just call and he says bring her in. That is why I am waiting till Monday.. with her in no pain.. We have the weekend with her..
That is why I have not been posting this past week. My mind was just not in it...She will be missed so much. She will be buried by her sister Sadie. She would have been 16 in April.
I have talked enough about this.. I have never went through this. Our pets have always ran off to die or passed away in there sleep. I have never had pets that have lived this long either..  Sli the cat was 19 and Rebel 15. Long lives.. We will not be getting anymore pets.
Joshua has allgeries to them. Swells up and breaks out. 
I hope everyone has a great weekend.. Please say a little pray for my Monday..  XOXO  April

I share your tears and I'm sending you lots and lots of hugs. Critters always bring us so much joy and love.
You're in my prayers.

A fitting tribute to your old friend taken from poetry by IP Richardson.

...Grieve not,
nor speak of me with tears,
but laugh and talk of me
as if I were beside you....
I loved you so -
Twas Heaven here with you.

I've had to do this several times and it never gets easier. Enjoy her this weekend and know that sometimes these decisions have to be made for the pet, when the quality of life is not good. So sorry, my thoughts are with you.

I will keep Rebel in my prayers on Monday, it is so hard letting go of a beloved pet. I have a 12 year old lab and I dread the day.

I am sorry...it sucks and it never gets easier..but that is what makes you a wonderful, caring and responsible pet owner. I am sure all of your pets/friends have had amazing lives.

Aawwww that is sad, I'm sure she had a wonderful life.
We had to put ours down after 18 yrs. Like Rebel our Joey was taken to the vet a year before she went over rainbow ridge, she too perked up like she was a young pup.
(((hugs)))

Oh April, I am so sorry but you're right. It does sound like it's time. I'm glad that Rebel is not suffering in any case.
I know how difficult this can be since I had my cat Finnigan put down three years ago due to a heart condition. It sounds like you have a wonderful vet though who will be very understanding.
I will definitely say a little prayer for you and Rebel on Monday.
{Hugs}

Oh, I am so very sorry about what you are going through, having lost our beautiful Major a few months back. It is heartbreaking, and my thoughts and prayers are with you.

Myra said...

How lucky he was to have you to take care of him all those years. I will be thinking of you on Monday.

You are in my prayers. I know how hard it is to let them go, but doing this for her is the last act of love you can do for her. Sending hugs for you.
