Visiting time with Derick at the vet. On the outside, being strong for my baby, on the inside heart is breaking.
It’s his kidneys and he’ll be staying at the vet for the second night tonight. Doesn’t look too good; but I always believe in miracles and he’s in very good hands.
Coming home to a house without a pet is the saddest thing. My other cat, Billy, lived to 19 too and died in 2013. After tonight Derick will be spending one more night at the vet. If there is no improvement, we’ll be taking him home to live out his final days. He’s not in pain, the vet says, his body is just weakening with age.
We just want him to be as comfortable as possible during his last days, like we did with Billy. With the guidance of the vet we are making the best decisions.
