It was only a matter of time

We've had such an amazing string of good fortune these last few months, it was bound to happen sooner or later. I'm just thankful it wasn't something "bigger", although this did break my heart.

I had to rush to the animal hospital yesterday with a barely-breathing 14-year-old cat clinging to my lap and gasping for air. It did not end well. My sweet kitty Cleo is gone, after a few hours of labored efforts at getting air into her fluid-logged lungs. The vet's short answer for what happened was extremely advanced heart disease.

It still hurts.

It is always hard to lose a beloved pet.

Oh, I am so sorry. I know it is so painful to not only lose them, but to feel so helpless in doing something to alleve their pain. We had a cat that got brain cancer. She was fine, then got sick couldn't stand and after 4 days died. She was only 4 years old at the time, we were beside ourselves. Sending a hug and praying God is bringing you all comfort.
