My kitty is spending the night in the hospital. She's not doing well. It's her third trip to the vet this week, but the first time she's had to spend the night.
She's 16. She'll be 17 this month. I know she's had a long, good life full of love.
I know that I'm lucky she's been with me, and has been healthy, this long.
But I'm still sad and scared. It's not looking good for her. It's strange, because she wasn't that sick, and suddenly she's terribly sick. She has a lot of things all working against her - pancreatitis, perhaps a stomach infection, hyperthyroidism. They're doing what they can, but I'm worried we'll have to make some tough decisions soon. I don't want her to be in pain or scared, but I can't imagine my life withouther.
Please, send some love her way.
We've had 15 great years together.
She has such a personality, and pokes her head into everyone's business:
Our dog Riley loves her and has been looking for her. They moved in together when Kitty was about 12 or 13, and Riley was 5. Riley was in love from their first meeting, and was thrilled to have someone in the house to herd. Kitty wanted nothing to do with Riley at all.
I'm hoping for the best, but trying to prepare for the worst.
