    Well fellas, my story has a sad ending. Annabelle continued to get worse each day, despite visits to the vet for anti-inflammatories, steroids and pain killers. A few days ago we noticed that she was mostly blind and it was getting difficult for her to eat. 2 days ago, she started having mild seizures, and they grew worse yesterday during the day. My wife took her to the vet and they put her on oxygen and another pain killer. I met her there, and we decided that it was time, but we didn't want her to leave at the vet, so we arranged for a doc to come to our home. It was all over 2 hours later. We are devastated but as I'm sure many of you know, its a part of life. We still have our 15 year old kitty with us and will spend our time spoiling her while we can. Thanks for all the support and wisdom. It means a lot. :)

    Sorry to hear that, I had hope with what you said earlier that it was curable. She obviously had a good life....remember the good parts.

    Sorry for your heartbreak. I know it is always tough to put a pet down but in time (if not already) you will realize it was the right thing to do for your cat and for you. I just went through it 2 months ago with my cat of 17 years. I tried not to focus on her passing but all the happiness, personality and comfort she proved to me and I provided for her.

    I've only read the first page, so I'm late to this discussion. But my cat died two weeks ago. And this quote sums it up. Don't hang on too long. The end was rough for me and my cat/buddy. My cat suffered in the end.
