Our little foster kitten Giselle left for the Rainbow Bridge today. Meowmi's lying in bed now, wondering if there's something else she could have done to save Giselle.
She was only about 6 months old, and we have had her since the beginning of June. She always seemed a bit sickly and small for her age. But last week she was suddenly unable to use her front legs. She was at the emergency vet for a couple of days, then at her regular vet daily through Thursday. X-rays didn't show anything, and blood tests were negative. . . The docs put her on antibiotics & steroids, and she was looking better by Thursday. . . but she started going downhill over the weekend. Meowmi took her back in this morning, and the doc agreed she looked much worse. She ran a blood test, and the liver value was "off the charts" - the doc said she had never seen that value so high in any cat. After much discussion of options, Meowmi and Doctor agreed the prognosis wasn't good, so to avoid more pain for Giselle, Meowmi decided to have her assisted on her journey to the Rainbow Bridge.
RIP sweet Giselle (4/15/09 - 10/19/09)
