I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm sure your precious Shadow is waiting at the Rainbow Bridge for you.
You did the most unselfish act for your kitty. You put her needs and quality of life before what you wanted. Sometimes the head knows the right thing to do but the heart cannot understand it.
Ten years ago we had a cat (Mozart) that died from diabetes after a year of insulin shots, special diet, etc that we had owned for 10 years and only 2 months later we had to put our other kitty (Kit Kat) down due to mouth cancer. We had him for 14 years.
We still had OKK (outside kitty kat/ witchypoo had her since 1998) and Bud Ro (had him since 2000) and I said I didn't want any more kitties. About a month later I saw an ad from the local rescue for a declawed and nuetered black and white cat. I went to see him and fell in love. So I brought him home and named him Cry Baby. About a month later my husband went to take our trash to a local dumpsite and came home with 2 babies in the palm of his hand and said "we are not keeping them", we had to bottle feed them, teach them to poop, use the litter box, eat regular food......and they are now 9 years old!
In the last 3 months a feral cat has been hanging around (named him Stubby due to nub tail) so I got a trap from the vet got him fixed and vaccinated and he's now a certified member of our family. He gets in my lap and follows me around whenever I go outside. He has turned in to a sissy and a cry baby but I love him too.
I don't know what my life would be like without any kitties, they are so loveable and so independent too. I also have a pet Russian Boar that now weights 425 pounds that I raised from a baby. Next on the list of critters will be some chickens, our grands want us to get some so we now have a chicken coop all ready for them.
I hope you can get to the point that you remember the good times you had with Shadow and know that she was so blessed to have you in her life. It sounds like you've got a wonderful vet as well.
