Blessings to you and Rocket. Those kitties were so lucky to find you....

Hi Sharyl,  Lovely tribute to your dear Rocket, and we'll light her way to
the bridge with a candle tonight here in SoCal.  So very sorry for you, but
happy Rocket was able to be loved and cared for by you.  Sara

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.
