Sweet Innocent Angel
- Jun 9, 2003
Quite unexpectedly we had to make the decision to put our oldest cat Scarlet, almost 16 years old, to sleep today. She was fine yesterday morning and then in the evening she was having trouble standing on all 4 legs. She kept falling on her side, just unable to get anywhere in the house so she just lay there on the rug trying to sleep, I guess. It all happened pretty fast within a matter of a few hours. The vet said her kidney and liver function, from looking at the blood test, was fine. So it was narrowed down to a brain tumor, a stroke or some sort of heart condition. They gave her some fluids and some oxygen but in the end it was just time to let her go. Can't tell you how long I have cried today. Just did not expect this to happen at all. Here are a couple of pics of her. She "found" Mike when he was in college back in 1997...she was a year old at the time.
