Well today was kinda rough at the end... I started out fairly ok, and still am SOOO purroud of my brofur Brutus for winning 2nd place in a cool Adoption story contest... but this afternoon we had a loss... My dear furiend Tasha, a sweet Himalayan who was about 15 yrs old passed away.
We had been feeding her for years now - she was sorta the neighbors cat, but when his mom (the main owner) had passed away a while back, she started coming over to us alot more. She enjoyed Grandmeowmys company, and snacked on the food we had out. Then we just sorta kept loving her and feeding her. Our neighbor was ok with the arrangement, as we were doing a great job, and Tasha still visited him now and again MOL!
Tasha slept outside (unlike all of us indoor folks) but meowmy had a bed out there for her, and Grandpa bought a heated bed for her even! They fed her wonderful food, and gave her lots of love. Over the holidays Tasha started having labored breathing, but was starting to improve. This morning the bug spray man came again, and we think Tasha's weaker system plus exposure to the spray caused her to have a horrible reaction. When meowmy got home after work, Tasha was breathing poorly again, drooling some, and very restless. Mom stayed by her side trying to comfort her. She knew the end was coming, so she refused to leave Tasha's side. Finally around 5:30pm Tasha layed down and let the angels take her to the Lord. After mom told our neighbor, we decided to place her to rest with many of our other sweet furs who've gone before, in a special area in our back yard.
Please say a prayer for her to find peace and comfort in the Lap of God, and for meowmy to feel better -- She is taking this kind of hard.
Rest in peace Tasha
