For about the last month, we have been dealing with our cat, who hasn't been the same since our other cat died at the end of September. He had to have a section of his intestine removed because he ate a hair band, about a ft long, then another surgery because he developed an infection. In all that time he stopped eating completely nd was being force fed. Yesterday he had to be rushed back to the vet because we woke up to find him comatose. Hubby went out of town yesterday and refused to give up on him and kept wanting the vet to try things. Well, this morning he passed away. I took the girls by yesterday to say goodbye because I didn't think he would make it. It was much easier than our last cats passing since he went naturally and had been sick for so long but still hard for my 5yr old. My 3 yr old doesn't really get it. Just a rough time for us.
