Saying Goodbye To My Best Friend
I had to say goodbye to my best friend and companion of the last 20 years today. Luke fell ill recently and has been really struggling. He was in a lot of pain. Making the decision to end any one's life, even a pet, is perhaps the most difficult decision we can face in life. You could not ask for a better friend and companion than Luke has been to me. He was just that kind of a devoted pet. As much as I loved him, I could see in his eyes he was ready to pass to a new world, but he was simply clinging to this life because he knew how much he meant to me. The veterinarian told me his kidneys and liver had shut down, which came as no surprise to me. He might have eaten some of the bad Iams food that was recently recalled. Not sure. Most cats live for only 12 to 15 years. I shall forever cherish the 20 wonderful years I had with Luke. Farewell my friend.
