I put Snowball to sleep this afternoon. For the last few months she had been slowly fading. She would eat but not enough to keep her from losing lots of weight. She was alert and normal when she was awake but was only awake about 15 minutes a day. She was getting less and less mobile. She was starting to look sad except when the SO was bribing her with McDonalds cheeseburgers. Then she was downright enthusiastic!
She was 17 years old so it wasn’t unexpected but still sad.
