Hi Sally. I'm sorry to hear about your loss of Lucy. I'm going to be very honest here and say that your decision to let her go was a compassionate one. When a cat starts to have thrombus formation (strokes), they are in a bad way. The dragging of the front leg was most likely due to a clot going to the major vessel to that leg. More than likely it wasn't going to break down and further clots would be happening. This would cause her further distress and pain. While it is hard to let them go, please know that you helped her to be at peace. These cases typically don't do well at all and they suffer. It was a gift to her to let her go. I know it is hard on you, but she is still with you in spirit.
You helped her to be at peace. Thank you for being strong enough and loving her enough to do this.
