|After observing him today and sitting with him for a few minutes just now, I am sure that he's not ready yet.|
It sounds to me like Mulder does have some time left. Probably not a lot, but if he seems pretty content most of the time, then don't feel bad about not putting him to sleep. Keep a close eye on him though.
The sea monkey has my money.
I am okay. I am not sad or depressed or upset. He was one of 3 cats, and I felt that we had too many cats and maintenance was draining on me. Before we had children, our cats were our children. But since we had children, we don't feel that strong connection to our cats anymore -- they are, in fact, JUST our pets.
Mulder was deteriorating for a long time. When DH brought him in on Friday the Vet said it was the right decision -- his eyes were jaundiced and his liver was failing. He lost a lot of his body fat. It was the right time.
I was nervous that DH would be upset about it like he was with Neelix, but I haven't really noticed a change in him like we did when Neelix died. The situation around Neelix was completely different though. We didn't have kids at the time, so our cats were still our "children" at this point. He also died very suddenly. He was happy, running around, eating, etc. The next day -- dead! (Cardiomyopathy). Neelix was also the cat who played with us all the time, playing fetch, etc.
We have two cats still living. Dax is a cuddler -- he'll sit in our laps when we are at the computer, he sleeps with us (usually with DH). Blaze is the youngest (just over 8 years old) and is still a very active cat. He plays with us all the time and loves playing fetch. It will hurt more when Dax and Blaze go. But we've made peace with Mulder's death -- he had a good, long life.
A bit OT, but where did Blaze get his name? I get Mulder, Dax, and Neelix, but not Blaze. Just a name, or did I miss a good sci-fi show?
Also - I have 3 cats as well... and yep. They used to be our babies but now are just pets. I am still very attached to Tennyson, but he's my old man and the only one who did not pee all over my house or attack me when I was pregnant. Boy cats are the best cats.
