This was my baby on her last day. This was at least her fourth vet visit since 11/14. They did an upper gi on her, and found no blockage. Her blood work came back fine. they could not find anything wrong with her. I brought her in on 11/26 because the night before she was having a really hard time breathing. The vet said to make her comfortable and told me to take her to a specialist on Monday and try to up the food I’m syringe feeding her. I was feeding her catsure which is like a food replacement for cats.
We went to a soccer game and when I came home I didn’t see her. She wasn’t in her cat carrier, her cat house, on the cat blanket. I looked under my bed and she was there. I said her name with no response and I reached out to her and she was still. She had died under my bed while we were gone.
I called the vet to tell them she died and asked what I could do with her body. In our town, you can’t bury animals. We were able to get a hold of a creation business for pet that was right in McKinney called Platinum pets.
They told me to remove her from our carpet and put her in a bag and in a box and they’d come pick her up. They said after they pass they often how bowel movements and if we didn’t move her she’d probably go on the carpet.
We moved her to a small bag in a box and made the bag more like a blanket. I couldn’t just toss her into a bag. It was a Saturday and they still came and picked up her body. We chose what urn we wanted (a cedar box) and we had her name and date put on it.
They delivered her back to us on Monday.
She lived from 9/98 to 11/26/11. She was the most wonderful cat. I cried for awhile after she died. She was my cat that would lick me. The sound of it would drive Joe crazy. She liked to lay with me. She’d often race me down the stairs nearly making me slip and break my neck. She’d meow at me constantly until I fed her the wet food at night. She was a sweet cat, loved to cuddle with me. She will be missed terribly. She now sits on the shelf in my bedroom with my kitty TyTy, overlooking Joe and I.
I was trying to print with my photo printer. It would not pull the paper in right, no matter what I tried. I happened to stick my hand in the paper feed and felt something spongy. I pulled out a nerf dart. Seriously boys?! In my printer?!
I took off a few hours from work to come to Justin’s Thanksgiving feast. I’m so glad I did. He was so happy to have his mommy there. He was showing me off to all of his friends!
