Anyone that loves animals knows that one of the hardest things you ever have to do is to end your pet’s suffering.  I just had to do that for my cat Bandit who I only had for 10 years.  I adopted him and his brother Smokey when they were kittens from a rescue site and Smokey got cancer last year and I had to end his suffering in August 2017.  Now, not even a year later Bandit got sick with some “idiopathic” illness that was causing his lungs to fill up with fluid.  4 different vets could not figure out how to fix it so after several procedures of draining his lungs I decided to end his suffering.  Being a single person and living alone, it was one of the hardest things to decide because he was my buddy and always knew when I needed comforting but I know he is not suffering anymore and is at peace now.  Dr. Liu was excellent.  She came to the house and was very compassionate and calm and let me spend as much time as I needed with Bandit before she took him.  We all know that we will probably outlive our pets and when they pass it is always heart breaking but I also can’t imagine life without them.  I look forward to seeing all my pets someday at the Rainbow Bridge!
