Sorry to hear this- it does sound like it was the right thing to do.

Very sorry to hear your news, Aquarelle - it’s never easy!
No doubt you gave him the best possible chance.

Mixed feelings. So sorry, but so glad that you could be with Brynner at the end and let him slip away peacefully.

I sometimes wish that vets were licenced to treat humans in a similar way. When life really gets too tough, to die with dignity in the company of someone who loves me.

Thinking of you.

Very sorry, Aquarelle. Yes, part of the Circle of Life, but still sad. You gave him the best chance, and I'm sure he had a great life with you. All the best.

Thank you everyone for you kind words. Yesterday was a long and sad day but we all know that if you have pets and love them you do risk the sadness of  losing them. Brynner was not an easy character but he was much appreciated. His favourite trick was to throw his food bowl from the kitchen surface on to the floor if he thought I was too slow in opening the tin! He was also an inveterate hunter and the rabbits in the field opposite will not miss him. I will remember him with affection and amusement. His life was short but lived fully. I do have the compensation of still having his brother - another strong animal character, but very different.

Short life perhaps, but he was loved and looked-after. I shall think of you as Aquarelle of Assisi.
RIP Brynner.

Just a quick note to say that someone not posting any more sent me a kind PM. I have replied but if that person hasn't received my reply and reads this please blame the "I am not a robot page" which I had difficulty in getting past.
