So sad. It was a little over 18 months ago that we had to put our Mycroft to rest. He had thyroid disease and we treated that and he was recovering when we noticed his ear was really bad. Took him back to the vet (I was very pissed because I was like "what the hell? you all did see this before?") and it looked like he had cancer.
They said we could do surgery but it wasn't 100% guaranteed because it was in his ear canal and so close to his brain stem. We decided it was his time. It was so hard and I'm beginning to tear up as I type this.
We had him since he was a kitten, 14 1/2 years and he was a trooper, traveling all over the country and to Germany with us since I'm in the US Army.
I miss him so much. okay, I have to go get some air. This is making me really sad thinking about my Mycroft.
