Retired and Losing a pet
(Dunbar, WV USA)
Hello! My name is Donna. I'm 64 years old (65 in May). My husband and I are having a VERY difficult week. A beloved pet (her name is Susie, 16 year old kitty cat) will be put to sleep on Friday. She's the last cat we have left. Our other died a year ago. This has been a VERY difficult week.
We had hoped she would die naturally, just pass away in her sleep perhaps. But it looks like we will not be that fortunate. She has cancer. Cannot eat. Drinks a little. We knew we were on borrowed time (16 is old for a kitty cat), but we tried not to think about it.
She is more attached to my husband -- eats with him, sleeps with him, sits on his lap when he works at the computer. But I love her very much also. I'll stop here.
I would be interested in joining the email group for my age bracket. Or the other aged group, if no one wants to participate in the one for people my age.
Thanks so much for listening.
