nmoira Posted July 10, 2008 Share Posted July 10, 2008 One of our cats is probably going to be euthanized Thursday and I'm not sure how to deal with my 4yo. She's very much a "fixer" and she's going to be devastated that she can't fix things for him. She knows he's sick, but we didn't know just how sick until today (autoimmune issues). There will be a couple additional tests tomorrow, but it doesn't look good. Since he's in pain, we don't want to drag things out if there are no reasonable measures we can take. We're going to have a time for the girls to say goodbye, and I'll stay with him after that, but beyond that I have no idea how to handle this. My older girl will be sad, and there will be tears of course, but my youngest spent her entire bedtime telling me all the things she was going to do for him tomorrow to make him feel better. I'm emotional enough -- this kitty is my baby who never grew up -- but her certainty was emotionally overwhelming. I'd appreciate any BTDT advice.
