That was the most peaceful end I've ever seen.

After a day of lying down, with occasional attempt to totter around, with back legs that weren't working properly, she had come into the bedroom where I was resting, and tried to jump up on the chair beside the bed where she usually sleeps on a jumper and a heated cat mat. I heard her land on the floor, so I picked her up and put her on her chair and patted her until she purred. A short time later the vet arrived, and she administered a subcut sedative first, so Tiger dozed off on her chair while I sat and talked to her and patted her for a few minutes. When I was sure she was well out of it, I called the vet back, picked Tiger up, wrapped in her jumper, and put her on the bed where the vet gave her the euthanasia injection.

The vet thinks the trouble with her back legs was a stroke from the high blood pressure, and that today was definitely the right day. She went quickly and peacefully.

I'm sure the waterworks will start at some point but at the moment I feel both numb and relieved. I feel like she's okay now, and I'm so glad for her.

Thankyou everyone for your good wishes and kind thoughts, you've made it much easier for me.

That sounds like a pretty good way to go.

Hugs indeed.

You did well by her. I'm sorry for your loss, and hope that your grief is not too heavy or too painful.
