Kitten butt kicker
Greeter of all who came to the door
Biter of vet techs
Dang he loved that space heater....
We can't believe it. Tommy has been gone 3 weeks and now Mozart is gone too. A friend who came over to the condo made a comment last Friday that he was skinny and mom didn't think much of it as he is always skinny. However, Saturday night he walked by her and was VERY thin and his belly was distended. She freaked out and took him to the emergency vet. Thank heaven for Miss A - our vet tech and mom's friend. She came over and sat with mom while they waited. They took out some fluid and ran some tests....cancer. They agreed there wasn't much the er vet could do so he came home.
Mom took him to our vet on Monday. They agreed to try an appetite stimulant and steriods. The plan was to give it a few days and see what happened. However, he wouldn't eat. Maybe a couple of bites but not much beyond that. He would come out for a few minutes but mostly stayed curled up in his strawberry.
Mom spent many long hours laying in bed at night....what do we do? And the only answer, no matter how heartbreaking, was to let him go and give him some peace. He is now pain free and back with those who have gone before him (Butterscotch, Maestro, Tigger, Tim and Tommy).
*a note from the mom: there are no pretty words for the last 3 weeks. It sucks. Tommy was just so damn sudden and then this on top of it. I'm taking a few days off from the blog. I am mentally and emotionally exhausted from the last 3 weeks. We will be back - we have kitten stories and Chanel's adventures and tales of the permanent residents. But right now I need time to grieve and regroup. We know you all understand. Thank you for your love and support with all of this and over the years.
