Although I knew this was coming, that knowledge does not make it any easier - Chloe was helped across the Bridge this afternoon.
She lived nearly a year and a half after being diagnosed with FELV and , until several weeks ago, was her usual playful, vocal, social self. Over the past several weeks her appetite slowly dwindled to nothing, she dropped almost two pounds, and last night was weak and unable to walk without a struggle.
We nearly missed Chloe, that chilly afternoon, when we found her tiny son in a clump of weeds on the side of the road. Chloe announced herself by standing on "her tree", running over to us and allowing us to pick her up and bring her to the vet. She quickly became a loved member of the family, always wanting to be around where people were, sleeping beside me every night and waking me with her little meows every morning.
She joins Sable at the bridge, free of disease and of pain, watching over the son she's left behind. Maus will miss her, as will we all.
Rest in peace my little Chloe.

Please forgive my lateness in writing to you sweet angel Chloe.
I know you are in the paws of many wonderful bridge kitties, especially your own Sable whom I love dearly. May this 10th Life bring you renewed heath and joy.
