Late this afternoon we had to make an extremely hard decision. Skylar’s cancer now went from small cell to some large very atypical cells. He was down in weight to under 8 lbs at 7lbs. 15 oz. He was anemic, bone marrow not making red blood cells. Any other treatments at this time would have prolonged his life by possibly 2 mos. It was not the thing to do.
He was loved by so many people in our lives. All three of our grandchildren loved him.When our son calls from Maryland so we can face time with our grand daughter who just turned 7, she always wants to see Skylar. The two grandchildren who live in El Dorado Hills always play with him. My neighbor who always cat sat when we would be gone said that he was a good friend. So sweet. The friend who was with me when I got Skylar said she would go today with my husband and I and even be with him when the procedure was done to end his life.
I have cried so much this day. He is going to be so missed. I can not bear to even contemplate his not being here anymore. We have a cat I rescued from a field, Gracie, but right now I feel like I can’t go thru this again. This is the third time we have had to make a decision. My heart is in shreds.
I know you once said I was the only one to update you on an adopted pet but I always felt since you were his foster mom you would like to know.
Thanks for listening,
