Rocket had a bad week. She had gotten another Immunoreglin shot last Monday. It 
didn't seem to help her at all. She just wasn't interested in eating except for 
a little kibble. I tried several times to syringe feed her but she got so 
upset. She would start panting like she couldn't catch her breath. We were to 
go back to the vet today. This morning she wasn't able to walk very well and 
was having problems breathing.

So we made that final trip to the vet. Thankfully my dear neighbor drove us. 
Rocket normally starts with heavy breathing when we go to the vet. This 
morning  was worse than normal. She had a small seizure as we were entering the 
vet's office and died there in my arms. Her little heart just gave up. I'm sure 
she had some type of tumor. Wasn't anemia like Sissy.

She was such a good girl. Never a big love bug but enjoyed playing with the
feather toy and loved her treats. Even this last week she was rubbing my leg as 
I was preparing the food plates. Another reason it was so heartbreaking when 
she wouldn't eat.

Rocket is my last FeLV baby. I do feel fortunate to have had her for almost 4 
yrs. I 1st met her at the dumpsters July '06. She was one of 5 kittens that 
would come running when I showed up with food. Spooky vanished but over time I 
was able to trap Rocket, Sissy, Daisy and Mae. Rocket and Sissy became house 
kitties. Daisy and Mae were much older when I trapped them and became garage 
kitties. Now Daisy's babies and these four are gone. Leaves a big hole in my 
heart. At least she had a good life and wasn't sick until these last few weeks.

By sharing her story I am trying to celebrate her life and encourage others to 
love their companions each and every day.
