Pets. Non-pet owners never seem to understand what they mean to those of us who have them. I don't care if it makes people think I'm a softie, either mentally or otherwise - my pets are so utterly important to me. My current dog, now 13, is one of the best things in my life, and I really cherish every day with her as she ages. I care so much for her that I miss her before her demise, if that makes any sense.
Sounds like a tough go with this cat, koi, so all the best to you, your daughter, and the feline during this rough time. Nothing that can be written can really help; nothing serves as a buffer for the pain. Just know you helped provide an innocent, deserving creature with a great life. You guys rescued a living creature.
How cool is that.
As for breaking the news to your daughter, well...all I can give is personal experience: My wife and I had a dog that I first found out had cancer and we really had to put the dog down; it was spreading fast and the quality of life was becoming zilch. So I was the brave soldier, carrying out everything kind of systematically, and then attended the moment when the dog was put down with my wife as well. I was as strong as I could be ... until I got home and it was all over. After that i was a freakin' waste product for weeks. But, I guess, my only advice is to be the brave soldier until the sad work is all through. Hope the advice might help a little.
