RIP Cheddar :(

Sponsored Links
My heart is broken. Cheddar made it to the Vet just fine, she was eating and drinking there. She fell asleep near me while waiting. This is her last photo with us.



The Vet took her blood and she passed away shortly afterwards.

Re: RIP Cheddar :(

Oh no, poor Cheddar you dirpy darling girl!

I’m so sorry for your loss YUMgrinder, you did everything you could and Cheddar would have known love and comfort because of you, and that’s what is important.

She is flying high & free now. Big hugs to you!

Re: RIP Cheddar :(

The vet was suppose to help. She would be alive right now if I hadn't taken her in. I'm in crisis and I want to die! I want to dig a hole... jump inside it and just die. This is not happening this has to be a dream

Re: RIP Cheddar :(

I’m so sorry for your loss. Cheddar was clearly loved and well taken care of, and that’s what matters. I would be absolutely DEVASTATED if that happened to one of my fids.

I'm new here. You don't know that bringing her in caused her death, and you did what you thought was the absolute best thing for your baby. Cheddar died surrounded by people who loved her. Everyone here feels your pain in one way or another -- while it's a small comfort, you can know that you're not alone. Hang in there. I just lost my baby (GCC) and am still heartbroken, but it's improving. You'll miss Cheddar forever, but the pain will lessen so you can focus on the great times you had together. *hugs*

Re: RIP Cheddar :(

I don't have the words YUM........I'm ....I'm; my sympathies are with you, I'm actually a little misty now. That's all I can say...anything else would be platitudes.....but you gave Cheddar a life of happiness, at least consider that.

Re: RIP Cheddar :(

her last moments were in a scary vet room with strangers poking her with needles. She probably thought I abandoned her and she couldn't bear it. I feel so AWFUL I should have kept her close to me snuggling in my neck where she was happiest. She shouldn't have had to die scared and alone. I ***ked it up she thought I left her there to die. I miss her so much already guys I miss her so much

Re: RIP Cheddar :(

don't think like that, I'm sure in the last moments cheddar was probably in a haze. His last moments were of you concerned about him and the night before he had dreams about all of your adventures.

Re: RIP Cheddar :(

Please don’t blame yourself!! I lost my baby boy about 3 months ago and was unable to be with him at the end either and I think that’s what’s making it worse for you. You knew she was compromised all along but you gave her a life a thousand times better than she had before!

No mere words will ease your pain right now and you need time to grieve for her but you were trying to do the right thing by her in seeking help. I hope you have someone close there who can help you now, and everyone here will support you!
