This was a sad day. My beloved gray cat -- Wilma -- who has been my companion and pet for 14 years died today from lung cancer.
Wilma and Betty are sisters and have been close since I got them as kittens. It was hard to watch my big lovable kitty drop from 13 lbs to 8 lbs over the past month, and see your lustrous gray coat look shabby. When she quit eating a few days ago and noticed her breathing was becoming more labored I knew something was very wrong.
I took her to the vet today, and after seeing her x-ray showing massive lung cancer I made the decision to have her put to sleep. I held her and petted her till the end and kissed her good-bye. Betty is still around and in good health, but is sitting on my feet while I write this. I think she knows her sister is gone, and misses her already.
Thanks for sharing this sad moment with me as I mourn the passing of my little furry friend.
