Comment on Pet loss and self-forgiveness by ryan.
my girlfriends cat started vomiting blood out of nowhere the other day. i knew it wasn’t good and begged her to take her to the ER. it was my girlfriends cat but we formed a special bond and I saw her as part of my family, my cat. My gf wanted to wait until she could get ahold of the vet and see what the vet had to say. She waited 12 whole hours while the cat suffered, vomiting blood 3 more times in obvious pain before she finally got in touch with the vet by phone. the vet then told her to wait another day. The next day the cat couldn’t move or eat and i finally convinced my gf to take her to the ER where she was confirmed to be in an unsavable state and put to sleep. I feel so bad that the cat had to suffer for 1 whole day in pain while we did nothing to help. The cat needed us and trusted us to help her, and we did nothing for a whole day. I should have taken her to the ER by myself as soon as she vomited the first time. My girlfriend should have listened to me. I blame us both and can’t forgive either of us.
