We ended up taking Jessie cat to the Emergency Vet in Eugene on Saturday. When we woke up Saturday morning it was clear that it was her time to go. There aren't any emergency vets on the coast--the closest is Salem, which is halfway between Pacific City and Eugene. As we had planned to come to Eugene for the weekend anyway, we got our stuff together and came back, called the Emergency Vet and they said to bring her right in. The vet looked at her for 30 seconds and agreed it was time to say goodbye.
We were fortunate that even with Covid restrictions we were allowed to be in the room with her (only two people were allowed). Her passing was relatively peaceful and calm, and we are thankful for the compassionate staff at the Emergency Vet.
It's hard. You know it's coming but it's hard.
Kiss your kitties for us, please.
