A Tribute

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.

  12. Cats, more so than any other animal have a way of sneaking into our hearts when we aren't looking. They are stealth! Once they get in there, they don't ever seem to leave. Blessings .....

  14. Dearest Julie, my heart is breaking as I read this. I know how close you were to CC. I feel the same way about my furry friends Poe and Teddy. I wish I could reach out and give you a big hug right now. I can't begin to express how sorry I am for your loss. I'll always remember CC as the fun-loving kitty that she was. Hugs and love, Kimber

  20. I am so sorry to hear about CC, my heart aches for you. Our cat, Mr Peterson, had similar symptoms, and they found it was lung cancer-there's no smoking in our home. They're such terrific companions-I sewed the binding on a quilt last night and miss the added weight of him being curled up in it on the floor, you know, when you try and lift to move around the edge. And here while all this was going on, you still managed to fix my pumpkin fob for me-thank you so much. Will be thinking of you.
