Tom had been sick on and off for the past month or so, he went to the vet on Friday for a recheck on bloodwork and stopped eating anything at all during that weekend. Took him back in today and they found a big tumor attached to his liver and intestines. Vet said it was bad enough that she wouldn’t touch it and he would of had to suffer longer to go to a specialist. Did what was right to him and let him go.

You loved him enough to not let him suffer. When their world is one of pain and fear somehow you reach deep inside yourself, take on their pain as your own suffering, and do the right thing. Bless you for that.
Love is spiritual, so eternal. he will always be a part of your soul, his new path will forever parallel your own life's journey. At times like these I always like to remember the quote "Do not cry because it is over, smile because it happened."
Your world will be so empty for a while. The routines will be hard to break, not seeing his sweet face will bring about a deep sadness and emptiness. Time is the only thing that will bring about a measure of comfort. Time is the only thing that will dull the sharp edges of grief.
He will forever be close, your souls are tied together by the chain of love. He will always hear your thoughts and prayers of love, he will send what comfort he can. His tiny heart is at peace because he will always carry your love.
My thoughts and prayers are with you both, just get through the next hour, the next day, one day at a time......RIP precious Tom. You will never be forgotten, you will always have a secure place in a loving heart. May the good Lord bless and keep you, until you meet again!

Rest you gentle, Tom, dream you deep. You walk in someone's heart forever.

That is the hardest decision we every have to make, but it is the right one. I only wish we could be as merciful to our human loved ones, it is what I would want for myself. But this, this, is the deepest Truth I know...that love never dies, it only changes form, translated and purified into Love, and continues on. And now, Tom, from his new home in That Place Where All Things Are Known, blesses you for your care and love, and he sends his own Love back to walk with you down through all of your days. Because Love abides. Always, forever, Love abides.
