Hard Decisions



It's been a long disappointing day but the decision's been made and we've let sweet Willie go to the Rainbow Bridge. When he started to show signs of decline last week, I began to fear that he had FIV, and late this afternoon the vet confirmed it. We could of tried to fight it, but with the speed and severity of his decline we felt it would of been cruel. We're going to miss our laid back friend.

So sorry to hear that Willie didn't pull through. Nonetheless he is running free on the other side of the Bridge where we will all meet again one day.

Our thoughts are with the family in this difficult time.

You've got to remember that he loves you and he knows you did the best thing for him. He is not in pain now and he loves you all the more for not making him suffer.

No regrets. Believe me, I know they'll eat you alive.

You're in my purrayers,
