Can tears dehydrate you?

...Because I am so thirsty right now.

I've have a craptacular day. My mom's beloved cat began acting poorly yesterday and we found out today that he was terminally ill (likely cancer among other things), so we had to make the decision to have him put to sleep. Buddy was a cute little orange and white cat with a manx tail. He was super sweet and part of our family for 12 years. He has been mom's best little companion since my dad died 4 years ago.

I feel horrible. I LOVE animals and I hate to see them suffer. I hate to see how they don't feel well, but they still take the time to rub their little head across your hand for affection. It was heart-breaking to have to say it was time to let him go. I know it was the right decision. He will not suffer any longer and he will go peacefully, but It's just so sad.

I feel bad for my mom. She is very upset. I have been crying off and on all dang day. I hate crying. I really do. I hate for others to see me cry. I do have to say that my veterinarians are awfully nice and Dr. K even gave me a hug today before I had to go. They are very kind.

Now I'm really thirsty, but almost too "full" feeling to drink as much as I want...UGH.

I'm so sorry for you and your mother! I am not an animal person, but I do not like to see any animal suffer. I also know how close people get to their pets. (((hugs)))

I'm so sorry for you and your mom. He sounds like a special cat who has played a big role in your family.
