Take it off your chest...
Read Rules

My cat is getting her tail amputated tomorrow, and I'm scared out of my mind. She started biting it open to the bone, probably because of an injury she had as a kitten that left her nerves damaged. Now it has to be taken off completely. I really hope it will help, and that the problem is not psychological. She's the closest thing I'll ever have to a kid if I don't adopt, I raised her with a bottle after someone just left her in the middle of nowhere. I went through a rough time the past year, lost some friends and family, and basically she's the only thing to comfort me. I hope I'm making the right decision. I hope this will be the end of her constant pain. If you believe in it, please pray for her. Even though she's just a cat, she means the world to me, and I hope I don't make everything worse for her. I just want her to be happy and free of pain again. I wish I knew what to do.

  • I think I did the right thing, thank God :) She seems to be getting better now, she just really wants to go outside and clean herself (but she can't, of course, because she is wearing a cone so she doesn't open the stitches). She is pretty cuddly again, and she doesn't seem to hate me because of it. Tomorrow morning (or rather later today) we are going to the vet again to check on the wound, which seems to be healing great so far. Thanks for the support!

  • Yes, please keep us updated. My heart and prayers are with you.
