My 11 year old kitty Tail was my best friend and when I took him to the vet on July 22nd,2011 just to be dematted I never expected what would happen.On the way to the vet he was very distressed so I couldn't wait to get there,but when the vet came out of the room and asked me to come in I knew that something was very wrong.I walked into the exam room and saw that Tail was lying there panting very hard and not moving, still unshaved. The vet told me that he was dying and had to be euthanized. I couldn't comprehend what she was saying and then I began screaming. My sister came in to see what the screaming was about. The vet had told her that he was suffocating to death because he had a tumor the size of a potato growing in his esophagus and that if we had not brought him in when we did, he would have died within a matter of days. Had I known that he was sick I would have brought him sooner. But he showed no signs of being sick,he was as happy as ever. That is why it was such a shock because i thought that i would have him shaved that day and then i'd be able to bring him home. Never did I expect that it would be the last time. I am having such a hard time dealing with his loss that all I want to do is sleep. I hate being awake because I miss him so much and all I do is cry. I do not think that I have ever cried so much for any human being. My cat(s) have never judged me,p ut me down or anything. All I ever got from them is unconditional love. I will never get over this, I feel as though I have lost a child. I will always love you Tail.
