Charley has been communicating with me for the last day

Charley is tired.  Today, for the first day, he has refused to eat.  He just looks at me without moving or blinking.  His demeanor says he is tired of fighting to eat, the apparent pain, his blindness, and increasing apparent confusion.

I saw the resignation in his face yesterday, not so much that he wants to die, but that he is suffering and very tired of fighting the fight to stay alive.

Tomorrow at 2:30 we have a vet appointment.


  1. makes me very sad, but he's telling you where he is now. I ' ll be sitting with you tomorrow at 5:30 here. Im glad he has you and Kerima with him. I'll miss him.

  2. Let go is probably a great relief for him.
