A loving relationship can be an oasis in uncertain times, but nurturing it requires attention, honesty, openness, vulnerability, and gratitude.

I am so sorry for the pain that both you and your pet are going through. My sister is going through a similar situation with her cat...and we are going through hospice with our father...both sticking to their routines and life. It is hard sometimes to know whose needs are we reacting to. Enjoy your time with your dear pet; you know the end is near...balance her pain with yours and have a plan for what will comfort your continuing grief when that time comes.
