I post a lot of hypotheticals and I wanted to know about something kind of important to me. i hope this is the right place to ask this.
Jake and Caroline dispite having only been together for a few weeks are like a pair of old souls. THey do everything together. She is of advanced age (10) at the moment. I'm doing all I can to provide her with a long happy life but I was wondernig something.
If the time comes and I have to make the decision to help her over the bridge. I really hope this doesn't happen for a long time. But I need to know. Would it be good to take Jake with us? Assuming it's not some emergency situation? Well even in an emergency Jake would probably come with us.
Since currently they go everywhere including vet, groomer, daycare together just so they're not apart. If she's not there Jake tends to loose it.
I was wondering if it would do more harm then good leaving Jake at home and then coming back without her. Or taking him with us and have him there.
I've never had to help a furkid over the bridge before. I've only known one cat that needed assistance. All the others either left on there own or were killed. But in my family each time an animal dies we take all the other animals to their grave before we bury them so they "Kind of get the idea" or so I was told by my father.
But I know that if I had to take Caroline away and help her all i'd get back is her collar and harness and a box. I guess I'm worried about Jake's closure with the subject.
Or am I merely over complicating things?
Any thoughts or opinions on this would be helpful.
I really hope this won't happen for a long time but it weights on me a little bit. If you've seen any of my other posts you see I worry about a lot of things and want things to be "as right as possible".
Thank you for your advise and wisdom.
Jake & Caroline's Mom
