Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

Mo, what can I say. I am just glad, Peter made the most of his time when he was feeling well. I think we do just get a sense of what is actually happening, when we know our loved ones so well. Hopefully when he gets his pain relief right, he will feel a bit better but it is so hard. Boris is truly s...

Re: Grumpy's Story

Quickly, I agree with every single word Mo has written, I sobbed and sobbed when I had to put my cat Oscar down 2 years ago now, like Mo I am sure some of the tears where for Trevor. I had tried to be so brave when I lost him, but it seemed okay to cry for our beloved cat, the poor vet I still feel ...
