Saying goodbye: Natalie Morales's oldest son, Josh, enjoys a few last moments with their ailing cat, Emma.
I took our 15-year-old tabby cat, Emma, to be put to sleep this week. She had mouth cancer, and there was nothing more we could do but to allow her peace.
After finding out the diagnosis, we gave ourselves one last good night to say goodbye and to tell the kids.
