I'm really not sure how to write this post, so here goes. Last time I posted, CC was sick and had been to 2 vets, but was not feeling any better. I took her back to the vet the day I posted. I don't even remember all of the details, but she ended up going yet again the following week, and spent 2 nights at the kitty hospital. I picked her up the day before Thanksgiving, and she was actually breathing worse than she was when I left her there. They still didn't know what was wrong with her. They gave her loads of fluids because she was always dehydrated, she kept losing weight - was down to FIVE pounds. They gave her tons of antibiotics, steroids, anti-fungal, Lasix - you name it, they gave it to her, but nothing seemed to help. Finally on Friday the vet told me that she thought CC had cancer because she wasn't responding to anything that they were doing. I am so sad to say that CC passed away Saturday afternoon. I miss her terribly, as she was always with me in the sewing room. You've all seen many pictures of her - on my ironing board, on my quilts, peeking through my sewing machine, etc. I'm just so, so sad without her.
