It is with a very sad heart that I have to tell all my fur friends that my beautiful girl Tonka went to the Rainbow Bridge this morning at 8:30am. She had not been feeling well for awhile and lost weight and was very unsteady while trying to stand. This morning was very bad, she was so weak she could barely stand up without falling over. I took her to my vet and they let me hold her the whole time, she passed away very quickly and peacefully. Its such an awful decision to make but I did not want to see her suffer, she was too good of a girl for that. I was able to spend as much time as I wanted with her and to be right there with her helped me immensely. I miss her and her brother Tate misses her, he is walking around and meowing looking for her. I brought her Christmas stocking with her and she had that with her when they took her away. Thank you to all who were/are such great freinds, catster is the best place for fur friends. I probably wont be on here for awhile so I can heal up alittle bit, its very hard right now. I will be intouch later on. Thank you to all who loved her, especially her BFF Flossie. Please take care of each other and give your kitties extra special hugs from us. Love, Sandi, Tonkas Momcat......
