Today I had to put down our 17 yr. old cat, Jasmine. I'm so sad and I miss her already.
She was sick and we took her to the vets to see what we could do. The first time she didn't get better, but the second time we took her, the shot seemed to work. Then, two days ago she stopped eating and was throwing up whatever she could. She didn't even move off the couch, so my husband and I thought it was time.
I know 17 years old is a long life for a cat, but it still hurts regardless.
