Hi, I'm new to this site, and I'm feeling really awful today, but will try to be articulate. Yesterday, after my cat Jessie, had been ill for what appeared to be only a couple of days, my husband and I discovered she was in liver failure, and since she was eighteen, the vet did not recommend a bunch of testing. I wasn't expecting to lose her, and I think I might still be in shock over having to put her to sleep so quickly. She was put under a general anesthesia, but it took three attempts to inject the phenobarbital, with the last shot going directly into her heart. She was my constant companion for so long, and I haven't worked the last couple of years so we were almost always together. I have never experienced grief this intense, not for any of my other cats or any human. I can't stop crying - it's been pretty much non since around noon yesterday, and I haven't slept. Usually when I cry I feel myself feeling a little better, but not this time. I don't really know what to do. We will be getting her ashes back in a few days, but I feel so lost and devastated by this. Can anyone help?
