|Hi Alex, this is Bev (Melissa's Mom). We had so many tests run on her, and if I recall, that was one of them also. We initially thought overactive thyroid or diabetes since she went through nearly 100 cans of food in 1 month. I made sure to keep her hydrated because of the in-and-out syndrome and she felt as if she need to eat all day and night. She did have a cyst on her neck that was drained to test for any cancer there and that was also negative. We exhausted everything we could and got to the point of literally just "grasping at straws". We never showed her any fear but last week late one night her pupils dilated and stayed that way for hours. That was when I knew that my Precious wasn't long for the world; I think that may have been a stroke, but by morning (and after exhaustive prayer too) she was back to herself. The constant feeding (and her loud obnoxious [and oh-so funny] vocalizations) filled the house from morning to night, but now it's just freakishly quiet and we just cannot even find the words to say to each other, so we just talk to Daniel Aaron and pet him and play with him.
I called the vet's office and we're having a private cremation tomorrow. I don't think after having her near me constantly for over 14yrs that I could bear to let her be apart from me any other way.
Well, I sincerely thank you for your concern and caring. We wish you and yours Bountiful Blessings and send our Kindest Regards,
