This is always the hardest part for me, when a pet starts having health problems. We thought we might lose our cat last week over a chronic condition he has. He's on steroids daily because of it as it is, he had a flare up of his condition, which is a digestive inflammation thing and stopped eating, lost a ton of weight.

The condition eventually develops into lymphoma. It's pretty much a given, just a matter of time. He's 11, so he's probably going to die young, and the process is over time so there's some amount of suffering involved even now that he just has to live with. Luckily it's periodic and doesn't seem constant. In any case, I hate having to make the final decision to put a pet down, though sometimes I wish humans were afforded the same dignity. I try to let the pet decide when it's time, but I always second guess myself.

I'm not sure if it's harder on me than the actual death of a pet. Especially never being sure if we did the right thing at the right time.
To err is human. Fortune favors the monsters.
