rough weekend

suzanne's mama:
suzanne's improvement was short. she's not had a good weekend...not eating, drinking lots, not wanting to cuddle. we're spending a quiet day together, and will be making a very tough decision tomorrow.

ben2 has visited a blog or two and may do more of that as time goes on. suzanne asks that you be as welcoming and loving to him as you have been to her.

Name: Mr. Hendrix said...

Oh of course we'd love to see Ben2 come around. He is always welcome. I wish Suzanne would be able to come with him.
Suz's mommy Toni, we are very sad for you. Mommy says this was the hardest thing she went through with her doggies. She said with her Sebastian and Comet, they looked her right in the eye and told her when it was time. She said that she felt more comfortable with her decision to help them to the bridge because of that. She believes Suzanne will tell you when she is ready. Maybe she won't even want help, she'll just want you.
We are all purring and praying and sending comforting thoughts to you during this difficult time. Let us know how we can help

Suzanne said...

we have a wonderful day together, although suz is restless. we did get to nap...cuddled on the bed...her back to my tummy and my arm around her.

i put down a bag of catnip that she and ben opened together. she's rolled in it, eaten some, and has laid in it.

every couple of hours, she asks for a snack, which is about a teaspoon of baby food heated in the microwave. she usually eats a little less than is on the plate, so she's probably getting about 3/4 teaspoon.

ben has been kind to her today...not batting at her, not pushing to get close.

the expression in her eyes is interesting. she looks sad...but not the hopeless sad that i've been seeing lately. there's kind of a peacefulness about it.

she and i both say thank you for your kindness, your purrs, your love. it warms our hearts...and they need it!

love

Parker said...

Suzanne will tell you with her eyes - at least that is what Mommies experience has been. You'll know, you'll just know. How wonderful that there has been today to cuddle, to have catnip, to be with one another.
You are in our prayers.
Purrs...

Miss Peach>(^,^) said...

This is such a heartbreaking day for me. My sister so close to her journey, my daddy not doing well and I have to just get through the day. What will happen next...I have a new little brother! Mr. Dragonheart has asked me to be his older sister and I have accepted:) This is a grand honor for me. My family grows as ours here together grows. We are forming bonds so strong with each other no chains can break.
I also have some very happy news to let you in on....I think there is a Prince out there coming for me Suz, can you believe it, me, skinny old me! Please don't go until I tell you more about him . I need your advice on this.
I have to go to a volunteer function for a little bit but will be home again around 8 or so. I hate to go but must. Please snuggle up with mommy till I get back.
Luf Peach>(^,^)<

Oh, Mama Toni, all our hearts are hurting for you and dear Suzanne in this painful time.

We agree with Daisy and the others that Suzanne will tell you when it's her time to go. We know how very difficult this is, but keep in your heart and mind that if you have to make the decision to let her go, Suzanne will always remember this as your final act of caring.

Be warm and together tonight, and know that love and comfort are coming to you from all of us out here.

Everybody at Artsy Catsy

I am so very sad that it's hard to tell. Am in tears already. Suz appeared to be such a sweet cat in the short while I had known her. I've loved her like she was my kitty. I hope she finds peace and happiness on the other side of the bridge as she did for so many years on this side. Hope you can find courage Suz's Mom in this difficult time.
Ben2 will always have a special place in my heart as Suz's brother and a very special cat himself.
Remember ~ for each life gone ~ there is a new one waiting nearby for your love.
All my Love!

Of course we will welcome Ben2 with open arms. Perhaps Suzanne can show him around a little.

Purrss from all of us to all of you.

Tracy said...

Mamma Toni, You are doing such a wonderful job being a kind nurse to your dear Suzanne. I'm sure you are making her much more comfortable by giving her the little bites and cuddling with her. It's precious time that you have with her and I'll bet it will make it easier to say goodbye, too.

The Cat Realm said...

All our energy goes to you tonight. And tomorrow. And so on until we hear you are better!
