tregare: (realm me)
had to do what I had been dreading for a while this last weekend. My kitty silver had been sick and losing weight, I had taken to syringe feeding him to try to get his weight up, this last weekend, he tried to jump from the bed to my lap and missed, I picked him up off hte floor bu the scruff of his neck and felt a sickening rip :( his scruff, and some of hte skin it was connected to ripped loose :( took him to the vet and the dr did an exam and he had a billiard ball size mass in his tummy.

the dr said he could clean the area and suture the scruff back but it wouldn most likely not heal as pook's health was on the decline, and that he was fairly sure that pook would be in pain soon from what seemed to be a cancerous growth... so I made the hard choice and had him put to sleep before he really started to hurt... he was wasting away to nothing :( he weighed 5lb 4 oz when the dr weighed him :( and he used to be a 15-20 lb cat...

i'm just torn up over this, and am having trouble sleeping, my mind keeps replaying the sickening rip and the picture of the torn scruff :(
