| Well... Good ol'e Max was feeling great this past Christmas.
All of a sudden, two days later, he went downhill fast. On Saturday the 29th of December, I took him to the Massachusetts Veterinary Referral Hospital in Woburn, MA, as our regular vet was closed.
Max had become so bad so quickly that he stopped eating and drinking water, and couldn't walk or stand. He just stared into some distant void and didn't even purr.
After some tests, the vet caring for Max has some sad news. Max apparantly had a benign form of feline lukemia (even though he was up on his shots), and it suddenly surfaced with a vengance! Poor Max... since he was almost 16, and his condition so bad, we had no option but to put him to sleep.
He passed on my lap, while I cried like a baby!!!
I have to say that the Vets and support people at the Massachusetts Veterinary Referral Hospital were incredibly professional, caring and supportive.
Ohhhh Maxy Max! We miss you dearly!
