Misadventures of Stipey the cat

At the Bridge

My family is very sad right now. I went to the Rainbow Bridge! It's pretty nice here and I am happy to feel healthy again. I got over the sniffles I had last winter but just a week ago I started having trouble breathing. Mama noticed my sides going in-out-out-in-out really fast. At first she thought I was just doing it to smell something, but then she noticed I was doing it ALL the time! So out came the evil cat carrier :'( I cried and meowed and my breathing got worse.

Then we saw 4 huge doggies in the vet's office. I was breathing so hard I was hyperventilating! Mama told me the doggies wouldn't get me. Then the vet checked out my belly and found that it was swollen. She had to wrap me in a white towel because I tried to bite her when she touched my belly! They took my temp and X-rays. The bad news was my body was chock full of fluid and my lungs could not expand.

So I had to spend the night at the evil vet's office. They drained some of the fluid out of my chest cavity so I could breathe. Then they took a bunch of blood to test and finally mama could take me home. At home I was not doing so good :( I layed around and breathed in-out-in-out same as before. The vet said that I had some type of virus or injury, and the fluid was also infected with some bad bacteria. There was not a lot they could do.

I slept at home for a couple days and then I went to Rainbow Bridge. I was glad to finally breathe free! The vet said what happened to me was pretty unusual. I didn't have FIV or FIP and it was nothing contagious that my big sis Maya could catch. They couldn't tell what caused it. I guess it was just my time to go. My work on earth was done! Mama and human brother cried a lot but, I let them know I was OK and I would see them again someday. Mama was glad I passed at home where I was nice and comfy.

Rainbow sparkly hugs to all,

Stipey I'm so sad that you are at the Bridge but happy that you are at peace and can breathe again and are in no pain. I'm glad you stayed around here long enough to get President Obama elected. Job well done.

Thanks for the Furever Planet Earth. It is very special because it is from you. Take care my friend.

Hugs to your Family.
