I am so sorry for your loss - I just had to euthanize one of our cats last
week....it never gets easier, as some people who don't understand seem to
think!  I remember every cat, dog, bird, mouse we ever had....detailed
circumstances, etc. - like a video going off in my mind!  Natalie

I Am Always With Her 

And God asked the feline spirit,
"Are you ready to come home?" 
"Oh, yes, quite so," replied the precious soul, "And, as a cat, you know I
am most able to decide anything for myself." 
"Are you coming then?" asked God. 
"Soon," replied the whiskered angel,
"But I must come slowly, for my human friend is troubled For, you see, she
needs me, quite certainly." 
"But doesn't she understand?" asked God, "That you'll never leave her? 
That your souls are intertwined. For all eternity? 
That nothing is created or destroyed? It just is....forever and ever and
"Eventually she will understand," replied the glorious cat, "For I will
whisper into her heart that I am always with her, I just am....forever and
ever and ever."

Subject: [Felvtalk] My cat Cheshire crossing over

My sweet, beautiful little Cheshire crossed the rainbow bridge last
night.  She had only been sick for less than 10 days.  She was on
and some pred for 10 days for gum problems.  I was going to schedule her
for a 
cleaning in a few weeks, but her health seemed to decline a few days after 
that.  She started hiding under the bed, and not eating, when seh came out,
saw a growth on her throat area, adn took her to the vet.  They weren't sure
it was a abcess or worse. I took her back seveveral times over the course of
days, she had to be given fluids through IV, and I syringe fed her.  I've
been through anything like this before.  I was praying for her.  On
they told me they couldn't do surgery to remove the cyst 'cause she was so 
anemic and her blood count was so low, it looked like she had leukemia.  The

only thing to do was bring her home or try to get her more help at the vet 
hospial where they have cancer specialists for a transfusion.  I brought her

there.  They had an extensive list of treatment for her, and costs.  It was 

I gave them permission for treatment and a deposit before they could do 
anything.  They told me she started to go into distress when put in the
tank and tube, I wanted them to do whatver they could to help her, and
blinked at me when I was in the room with her right next to her.  She wasn't

really blinking before that as whe had a tube in her mouth that was helping

This was so painful for me.  Her heart gave out, and that's how she went.  I

don't know if anyone on here has been through anything like this, but I've 
wondered if by brining her to that hospital and trhing to get here more help
stabilize her for a transfusion caused her more distresss that lead to her 
passing?  I've talked to the doctors who told me no, that didn't do it, she
just very sick,a nd even if i'd brought her home, she would haev
onyl survived a 
few days or 24 hours.  I even had jsut bought the Mega C plus which I had
good things about reversing felv.  

I told her how much I love her and she knows that until I see her again.
