Dear Catster friends,
I’m Katie’s mom and I’m sad to say that Katie passed away last week. She had been doing well considering her health problems, but it was her time to go. We had a really nice day together. It started out with a trip to the vet for her regular blood tests. I know she wouldn’t say that was good, but it was a sunny and mild day, so she felt the breeze blowing into her carrier and enjoyed the sun warming her inside. And she was really happy when we got home. She spent the day looking out the windows, getting petted by me, napping, and eating her favorite food.
In the evening I gave her the subcutaneous fluids like usual then brushed her. She loved being brushed so she purred and purred. I left her for ten minutes and when I came back she was limp and unresponsive. She came to when I picked her up but I knew she was very sick so I took her to the emergency vet. They did tests but didn’t know what was wrong with her. Her condition got worse and it was obvious that she was dying, so we decided that the best thing to do for her was to help her go.
I'm very glad that I was home when she started dying so I could end her suffering quickly. And I cherish our last day together, just like I cherish every day I had with her. Every day with Katie was indeed a treat.
Take care kitties,
How lucky Katie is to have you as her mom, you granted her every wish and saw to every need. She waits for you in heaven.
