Morning all, we had a sad day here yesterday. We had to put my oldest cat, Zoey, whom I’ve had for 14 years to sleep yesterday. I came home from running errands and her and Theo (our youngest cat) tussled (which is a daily thing) and she howled. I broke them up. Zoey appeared to be in respiratory distress. Her breathing the last couple of weeks had been a bit off but was in good health (eating, playing, drinking). I ended up taking her into the vet.
The Vet told me that cats are able to hide (compensate for) heart issues until it was too late. They gave her oxygen but were unable to stabilize her. They said that there were a lot of things that they could do to try and help her but the vet assistant finally told me that none of them were going to do any good. So Jim and I made the hardest decision ever, to put her to sleep. They gave us some time with her and we said our goodbyes.
To say the least, I am devastated but know she is better off (so I keep telling myself). Life around here doesn’t seem the same. She has been part of my life for 14 years, longer then I have been with Jim…lol.
Thanks for peeking in and have a great weekend.
