DeDe, I'm so sorry to read about Smokey. :( tonya I told you a bit about Smokey. The morning he died, he woke me up as usual nuzling my ear and purring. I will never forget that, ever. We too, had just had the aspiration done, but he wasn't eating and it was so hard for him to breathe at times. We went through the same thing at the vet. It seemed the more we did the aspirations, the quicker the fluid came back. After he died, the vet looked into his chest. One lung was collapsed, and he was full of tumors. He had to have been unconfortable, and it was time.
Cats are such noble and unselfish beings. You never really know how sick they are until they have no more to give. Console yourself with the fact that Boo was really happy until just before the end, and he knew true love and devotion from you both. Not many cats on this planet can claim that. God bless you both, and don't worry about BooBoo. He is fine, happy and healthy, and waiting for you. Dede --- Lynne wrote: > We lost our precious baby tonight.
