Folks, a moment of silence and purrs for pretty Morticia, who passed quietly at the vet’s today. We’d known she had cancer, but she was doing well for months on the prednisolone with occasional mirtazipine for an appetite stimulant.
Last Friday she was off her chow, so I took her in for mirtazipine (she wouldn’t tolerate the ear rub). That helped somewhat on Saturday, but Sunday she was again not eating. This morning she was not only weak, but clearly in pain so I called and made the appointment.
Terribly hard to do, but also terribly hard to watch her in pain. Farewell little sweetie, I wish you’d been with me longer!
