Waiting

I feel like I'm in a holding pattern - trying to save Elliott yet at the same time I am waiting for him to die. It's playing havoc with my emotions... and it sucks. I left a message at the vet to call me in the morning and let me know if we can try a feeding tube, but now I have all of these fears that he won't survive the procedure. I am sick of crying. I'm doing everything I can for Elliott, but it still may not be enough. I'm sad... and I am desperately trying to shut off my emotions but it's so hard. I LOVE this cat. I'm ready to keep fighting for him as long as it takes... I just hope he is, too.

Have you tried the high calorie gel? When Max was losing weight fast from illness, the vet told us to hand feed him tuna. He got a little nourishment and joy out of his last days, without a feeding tube. I hope you and the vet will figure out a solution.

Losing a pet is never easy, the mourning is life, but I do hope you find comfort in knowing you are trying to help him as best you can, and that he appreciates it.
