Unhappy Mom's cat

So I was waiting to post about her until I knew what was going on. My mom has two cats, Dora is hers and Charlie is "mine". Recently, Dora has been not well. For the past week I have been racking my brain, and searching the internet high and low for an answer, but to no avail. I read about one of her many problems last night, a mammary mass, and the article said that over 85% of all mammary masses are malignant, or cancerous. My heart broke. I was taken back to Mini's cancer, and that terrified me. She is currently still with my mom, and just today stopped eating. My mother said that if she doesn't pass on by her appt, sh'e going to take her in. My heart is breaking, for my mom especially. I was hoping she'd pull through, but I don't think that's going to happen. I'm just looking for a little support for this.

Oh, Kristen, I'm so sorry for you and your mother, I can't imagine how difficult it must be to see your best friend in such pain and discomfort, without being able to do much.

I really do hope she pulls through and I'll be looking forward to an update.

Stay strong, I'm keeping Dora in my prayers

It's always heartbreaking to face the loss of a pet, they truly become part of the family, and I'm sorry that you're going through this. But keep in mind that no matter what happens, when she does pass on, she will no longer be in any pain. She will live forever in your heart and memories of her.

It's never easy to let go of one of our beloved family members (human, furry or feathered).

If Dora is in pain or seems to be suffering, helping her move on her journey will be the kindest act of selfless love your Mom can give to her.

Prayers for you and your Mom during this difficult time. If you need to talk, feel free to send me a PM, Kristen.

Well, I thought I would let you all know that Dora had to be put to rest today. She was in obvious pain, and my mother wouldn't allow that to continue. I think she knew this morning that this was it, and so she stayed with her and cried all day. Dora stood up and wailed in pain, and mom decided that was it. It was done sometime today between 4:30pm and 5:45pm. My mom's heart is broken, and I don't know how to help her from here. I hurt so much for her.

Kristen,

Just be there for your Mom.
That is all she really needs and wants from you right now. Just knowing that you are there and understand how much she's hurting is the support she needs.

Let her cry, let her hurt and let her grieve.
She needs to feel free to do all those things right now. Feeling the pain of letting go is part of what we all go through when we love deeply.

Listen, be there, and support her as she goes through the process.

Prayers for you and your Mom.
My deepest condolences in the the passing of Dora.

Kristen, this is always such a hard situation. I'm sorry Your mom did the best thing she could for Dora at the time. You can't make your mom's heart stop hurting, but just being there for her I'm sure means the world to her.

Maybe a good thing to do to help you both heal would be to tell each other all of the happy stories you can remember of Dora. That might be easier when the pain isn't as fresh. I'm sure Charlie will be a bit lost as well for a while, so spending plenty of time with him will be good for everyone, Charlie included.

Kristen, I'm so very sorry for your mum and you. Your pain at losing your beloved Dora is immense and you just need to be there for each other over the next few days and take the time to grieve in any way that feels right to you..You do not have to worry any more about Dora - she is already an angel, safe and well and happy again.Your mum showed her love for Dora by ending her pain. Mum and I both know what you are going through.In time, your grief will lessen. I am praying that you and your mum will find peace. All the best Kristen at this sad time.
