I had a wonderful day today at the NEC with Emma and meeting up with some lovely bloggers but I will tell you more about it tomorrow with piccies of what I bought. Unfortunately I came back to some very sad news, Dusty our 12 year old cat had to be put to sleep this morning. We found him outside this morning just before I was about to leave in a very poorly state, unable to move his back end and in a lot of distress. Steve insisted I still went off to the NEC after I'd called the emergency vet who was going to come out, in my heart I kind of knew I'd not see him again. I called Steve numerous times through the day to see how things were going and said he'd had x-ray's at the vetinary hospital and nothing was broken so being run over had been ruled out, and he just kept telling me there on that he was having continuing tests. When I arrived home this evening, Steve told me that Dusty was put to sleep this morning as it was believed he had a pulmonary embolism which had moved on to his spine causing paralysis, it was advised any treatment in a cat of his age only had a slim chance of working and due to Dusty being in extreem distress the kindest thing was to put him to sleep. Steve didn't want to ruin my day by telling me whilst I was at the NEC, but I'd had a feeling he wasn't being truthful with me. As many of you may of known Dusty hasn't been in the best form the past few months, and was quite poorly a few months ago, but he seemed to fight through it. He never regained much weight from all he lost when he was ill, despite a good appetite. Going to really miss my little Dusty Bin.
