Oh shooo, you totally made me cry, I can only image what you've had to go through right now. I'm still new to the disease, so I haven't gone through the whole cycle yet.
This forum has taught me to value my time with all my animals because we don't know how long it will be. Andi, I am sorry for your loss, it is always a tough decision to put down an animal. In the end, you know when it is time for your animal. I know you gave that kitty the best life she could have lived. I think it takes a special person to want to help these cats. You are all angels!
