A Sad Sunny Sunday

As some of you may recall, we took in another cat about 6 weeks ago, that turned into a bit of a rescue situation. I haven't written about Daisy much, mostly because I had grave concerns about her health. Unfortunately my concerns proved to fall true and we had to put Daisy down this afternoon.

The Vet said that Daisy was probably at end stage feline diabetes, and no amount of treatments would correct the situation. We were with her in the end, and feel that we never really even got a chance to get to know her. However, now she is no longer in discomfort. Thank you Lord.

One thing this has taught me is that just because something is free doesn't mean it comes without a price. AND our other cat Digit needs a kitten to keep up with her shenanigans. So when my heart is healed a little we will again look for another cat - probably from a vet or the SPCA.

Blessings, and Rest in Peace lovely Daisy.

Oh, LJ, I am so sorry to hear this! (((LJ))) all the way through cyber space. I wish we could sit down together over coffee and your place since you are cooler than we are right now! tee hee!

I'm so sorry too, LJ. That's good she is no longer in any pain. My dad would agree with you about getting a pet from the vet or the SPCA. The animals we got from the pound, seemed more loving and appreciative of the home we brought them to.

I pray that your heart will heal in time.

My condolences for your poor cat, LJ.

What you say about things that are free still having a price is true. My poor previous pet was almost free from the SPCA - yet her operation and vet fees toward the end of her short life cost me over $200.

I am also glad that you adopt from shelters.

I'm sorry too - I have been reading along ever since you brought Daisy home last month. I have my own disagreeable cat - another Daisy. ;) She was lucky to have you take such good care of her and be with her in the end. Take care.
