Good day which ended sadly.....

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.

RIP Dusty

Joanne, what sad news after such a nice day for you. Steve did the right thing not telling you the truth as you couldn't have done anything for poor Dusty but as you said you knew in your heart-of-hearts he wasn't being truthful. Cherish the memories of Dusty that you both have in your hearts. Best wishes and lots of hugs, Kym xxx

So sorry to hear that you came home to sad news after your day out at the NEC.

Your hubby was right in not telling you the truth as it would have ruined your time at the NEC and he knew there was nothing you could do if he did tell you.

It was kindest to put Dusty to sleep rather than let him suffer.

So sorry for your loss, it is always difficult when you lose a pet, they are like children to us all.
