Awwwwww, if she doesn't want to be touched and is grumpy, she is probably in a lot of pain and her quality of life is suffering. I know you love her
dearly, there is no doubt there. If she doesn't improve with meds, you may want to consider ending her suffering. I know how difficult that is.
I had a 19 year old gorgeous, sweet and loving himalayan cat called Tai. He was my favorite and I just adored this gentle giant. He became sick and we
were told to force feed him. After a couple of attempts, it broke my heart too much and I stopped. He just refused to eat. He was always by my side
following me around and he was reduced to lying around in an out of way spot.
My heart was breaking. I did not want to let him go, but I knew that his quality of life had gone and that he was suffering. I held him close and
cried my eyes out and decided that I would not allow his suffering to continue for even one more day. To this day, I know I made the right decision
for him. We had many,many years of love and joy spent together and for that I will always be grateful.
Many people who lose pets say they will never get another but keep in mind that there are thousands of unwanted, homeless cats who are desperate for a
home and someone's love. I have an all white deaf persian cat with Ice blue eyes who I rescued and is my little companion now. She was like a wildcat
when I first got her, all hissing and growling and terrified out of her mind. It took me a long time and with a lot of patience and love, she is now
the gentlest, sweetest and most loving cat!
I believe with all my heart that if you have to make that decision to let her go, she will know that you love her deeply and that you didn't want her
to suffer any longer. I also believe that she will go on to a better place.
