I'm so sorry for your loss today and those over the last few months.  I've been a cat Mom for decades and know how hard it is to make that decision.  You gave him a loving home for all those years.  Take care.  Heart

@hckynut  John, I am so sorry about beautiful Cruiser.  This is the hardest part of having family pets.  What is most important is that you gave Cruiser a wonderful home and Cruiser was loved.  My condolences.

The next time that I hear salt and ice together, it better be in a margarita!

Dear John and Cindy,



If it should be that I grow weak
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then you must do what must be done,
For this last battle cannot be won.

You will be sad, I understand.
Don't let your grief then stay your hand.
For this day, more than all the rest,
Your love for me must stand the test.

We've had so many happy years.
What is to come can hold no fears.
You'd not want me to suffer so;
The time has come -- please let me go.

Take me where my need they'll tend,
And please stay with me till the end.
Hold me firm and speak to me,
Until my eyes no longer see.

I know in time that you will see
The kindness that you did for me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I've been saved.

Please do not grieve -- it must be you
Who had this painful thing to do.
We've been so close, we two, these years;
Don't let your heart hold back its tears.



You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.
