Molly is a cat my family has had since I was 10 years old. I am now almost 25. She is skin and bones and only eats a tiny amount. She lays down most of the time now. She is laying in the kitchen right now and I feel so sad..I wish I could sit with her all night but I have to leave in a bit. She is more my moms cat than mine but I still grew up with her, and still love her. It just hurts so bad.<br><br>
If any of you could pray/send positive thoughts/whatever you can do, for Molly Id really appreciate it. I know its a natural part of life but it just sucks and I want her journey home to be as peaceful as possible.<br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br><br><br><br>

Do you know what is wrong with her? Has the vet said if it's curable? At 15 it may be old age setting in, but it may not be. I'll send you good wishes either way.

Well she is my moms cat and my mom has taken her to the doc before for urinary track infections and stuff but she has never been able to afford expensive tests for her. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> She has a lot of symptoms of kidney disease. She is still hanging in there. I hope she isnt in too bad pain. She doesnt seem to be, just really really weak. Thanks for your kind words.

After a few hours of struggling and pain, God ended Mollys suffering at 12:55 A.M. Last night. As hard as it was to watch her suffer, my mom and I stayed by her side the entire time, petting her and talking to her. She seemed to know we were there and we comforted her when she cried out in pain and fear. We said a long prayer for God to help end her suffering and after that she stopped struggling and very slowly stopped breathing. It was very sad but I know she went back into the light and is at peace now.<br><br><br><br>
R.I.P. Molly, my sister and my friend.<br><br>

I am sooo sorry! I am sure that she knew you were right there beside her. You are right, she is now at peace and is not suffering anymore. Again, I'm very sorry for your loss.

I am so sorry, Starseed. It's good that you could stay with Molly. No one should have to die alone.<br><br><br><br>
Hugs.<br><br><br><br><i>May I add, Animallover, that I find your remark rather insensitive. Cats live for 15 years or longer. We don't always know what our financial situation will be 15 years from now. Does that mean we wouldn't have the right to take on a cat right now then... ? Especially since it sounds like in this case, the vet couldn't have done much to save the pet, except maybe help her on her way. I think Starseed did very well staying with her pet, and for her cat her presence was probably much more precious than any vet's interference.<br><br><br><br>
Sometimes love is all we can give, and all the love we can give is certainly the most precious gift of all.</i>

I really don't know how you can say that the vet couldn't have done much, since Starseed gave no information as to what was wrong with her. At 15 there's a good chance it wasn't old age, then again, there is a chance it might be. Starseed simply chose not to tell us what the cat suffered from. I'm sorry for the the OP's loss, too, but just assuming it's old age without doing anything does sound odd. I'm sure that this isn't what happened, it just may be the way the post came across.

Starseed did imply it was probably kidney related trouble. Which is not unusual in "senior" cats. I'm sorry if my post comes accross like a admonishing index finger too. It's just that I don't think it is right to condemn people who have pets but who can't afford the (often outrageous) costs of vet attendance. My experience with vets is positive, but I have several times had the vet tell me there was nothing he could do other than hope the animal would pull out of it... (luckily my vet is not so pushy on the "extra" analysis stuff, he usually just asks for bloodwork, unless the client requests something more, but I know there are vets out there who'll make any ailment a costly experience...).
