This is the post I prayed I would never have to write and the words are very hard to find.
My darling Buttons fell ill on his birthday last Thursday and unable to get him to eat or drink I took him to the vets that evening. He stayed at the vets both Thursday and Friday evening with no improvement and yesterday morning the Vet, after numerous examinations and every attempt to make him well again, found a lump in his abdomen, the tumor had regrown. My Buttons had done enough fighting and had done so well that my decision was not a hard one, no more suffering. I loved him dearly.
Buttons now sleeps peacefully.
