A Very Sad Day
Well friends, I've got some sad news to share with you. This morning, we said goodbye to our sweet little Drewey.
She had been really low for the past couple of weeks. After many visits to the vet; xrays, ultrasounds and blood work revealed many not-so-good things going on inside of her.
Considering her age (18+) we decided that treatment for all that ailed her wasn't the best route to take, so we put her on a comfort plan instead. Drugs, herbs, sub Q fluids, and a steady diet of anything she wanted to eat worked at first, but his morning it was painfully clear that her time had come.
We took her to the vet, and at 9:45, she slipped away.
We're horribly sad and heart-broken of course, but are so thankful for the many good years we had with her. She was an amazing cat, and it was a privilege to know her.
I'm sorry to have to deliver this news to you. I know whenever we have to talk about the subject of death here, it stirs up lots of painful memories of pets loved and lost for everyone. I'm sorry for bringing sadness into your day.
I do have a remedy, though. I'm pretty sure there's nothing on earth a basket of kittens can't fix... let's say we all give it a try.
