Mother had egg yolk peritonitis and today I asked the vet to put her to sleep.
It’s been said you’ll know when it’s time to euthanize your pet. There will be something different in its eyes. That’s probably true. I also think we don’t usually stare into their eyes enough to know what normal really is. Maybe we’re looking for a yes, maybe a no. Either way, by the time we’re looking, the answer is often there.
I’m thankful for every moment I gazed into Mother’s eyes when she was well. She had beautiful eyes and I spent a lot of time looking at them. When she looked at me this morning, I knew it was time.
