My cat of 11 years died yesterday, long story short I came home from work, he was breathing rapidly like he was struggling to breath and I knew something was wrong. We took him to an urgent care clinic where he started breathing even more funny and they did some tests and found out he has a rare form of feline cancer. I told the doctor that I want to put him to sleep, I didn't want him to suffer with a terminal illness. I spent my list minute with him but he was breathing so badly that I told the doc I'm ready for him to go, I couldn't stand seeing him like that. It's so hard to deal with his death and I've found myself sobbing out of nowhere; and I have to go to work today. We found him off the street in 02 and he has been home with me ever since. Does anyone have any tips during this difficult time? I would really appreciate it.
