so this sucks

March 25, 2011

Poor little Katie. The vet says it’s either heart failure or some kind of cancer. We’re trying a diuretic to see if we can keep her more comfortable for awhile. In any case, the foreseeable future is full of heartache.

I just feel utterly deflated.

Time for all the most-delicious cat food we can find to tempt her, lots of kitty love, and lots of boxes of Kleenex. She is Terri’s baby and it’s just horrible that it’s happening so quickly after we lost Cleo.

Thomas doesn’t quite know what’s going on but he’s being a love, and is a comfort to have around.

I will make some decisions this weekend about tax stuff and whatever else and then try to just clear the decks for a few weeks. I promise not to make this the Sad Kitty Post blog, but man, this feels shitty.

    Oh no 😦 I’m so so sorry, Daphne. I can’t believe it’s happening so soon after Cleo either. Sending you and Terri and Thomas much love.

    Thanks, everybody. We are hanging in there, although it’s not an easy time. Katie is having a pretty good day so we’re enjoying our time with her.

      Wrung through the wringer is right. Ugh. Thanks for your kindness.

    It feels shitty because it is shitty.

      That what we keep saying to ourselves: it’s just shitty. It just is. There’s no way around it. Thanks for the internet hug, we’ll take it!
