Crying Myself A River...
My sweet, silly, familiar Amazy is gone.
I felt pretty sure yesterday when I left her at the vets' to be monitored, etc. in a last ditch effort to turn her around for a while, that she was past caring.
She got worse in the night, and I was advised that to spare her any further discomfort, it was time for "The Rainbow Bridge"
R Next Door, who is at her rich friend's for a couple of weeks, insisted on coming along for moral support, and I really do appreciate it. For all her obnoxiousness, she's brilliant in situations like this.
Amazy was still awake, if pretty out of it, and we gave her some cuddles. Anders the vet, who also eased Wotan out, is very good, and it was pretty much instantaneous and very gentle, although she gave a wee whimper.
I decided to walk home to clear my head a bit. Actually, it may have been a blessing that I didn't get to bring her home, as the lift's kaput yet again, and I would have had to bump the  pet trolley down the stairs.
I've been howling ever since I got indoors. May get drunk tonight.

Oh god, I'm so sorry. I'm glad that R was able to offer support (and of the right kind).

Yes, everyone has their virtues.
It's all been a terrible shock, worse than when Wotan died, even. He was close to 20, and had been on borrowed time for a couple of years.
Amazy was 'only' 13-15, and until last Saturday morning, had showed no signs of being ill, now, after less than a week, she's gorn. *Snurt*

The poor wee thing, but take it from me, you did the right thing.

Thanks, Yes, if only humans could check out *so* quickly and peacefully.
Thinking of you and yours with sympathetic grunts aplenty.

I'm sad for you and her today, Lee. You used to always show her looking so happy and relaxed, I know she was a good friend and companion, as you were to her.

Thanks; She was a delightfully laid back little character.
Hope your tribulations are easing up a bit!

Trilobites? Yeah, trilobites is what I have.

Sorry for your loss, but you were with Amazy to the end. xx

Adieu to Amazy and my condolences to you.

So sad to hear this, she was a lovely cat and I enjoyed meeting her when I stayed at your place. Such a shock for it to happen so fast. Will be thinking of you. Xxx

So sorry - at least R was there and supported you (strange how the most unlikely of people end up being absolute bricks at times).

So true. It's a mystery...

oooooh no, so sorry t hear it

It's ever so hard to do something like this isn't it? I'm so glad R was for once there for you. I cried for days after putting Gabby down, and am crying now after reading this. I know you will too, but better that Amazy and you were in each other's lives than not.

As always, HUGS.

Thanks. I appreciate how much you've been through,too, losing much-loved beasts. There's something uniquely painful about, for some reason.

I'm so happy R came through for you. Although it's more of a shock when they go quickly, I think it's easier on them than a prolonged illness. THANK GOD we have the power to do the right thing by them at the end.

Yes, at least her exit was as peaceful as possible.

I'm terribly sorry to read this.

I'm glad that you were able to be with Amazy at the end and to ease her passing.

Sending you lots of gentle hugs

Oh no, poor Amazy. But you did right by her.

Thinking of you xx

I feel very sorry for your loss

Losing my cat was one of the saddest and hardest things for me, so I know how bad it can be. I feel your sadness. :(

Thanks to everyone for the kind messages. Much appreciated.
