Sleep Well, Sweet Kitty
Lawyer Mama with PandoraIt's over.

We brought Pandy home on Friday morning after her blood tests were a little better. She did really well on Saturday and then on Sunday became lethargic again.

She stopped eating and drinking. Yesterday we discovered that she could no longer walk. I caught her trying to drag herself across the floor to her litter box.

I made an appointment to go see the vet on Tuesday morning, but we won't be needing it.

I sat up with Pandy after everyone went to bed because she was breathing pretty heavily. I put her in the living room to sleep in front of the fireplace on a bed of soft towels. About 20 minutes ago, I heard her choking and ran in to see that Pandy had dragged herself off of the carpet and thrown up all of her medication.

While I was wiping everything up and cleaning her paws, she stopped breathing.

I'm so sorry that you've lost an important member of your family and she was such a beautiful photography subject. I love her eyes.

Losing a kitty always sucks. :(

Blogger Moondance said...

Oh, I know how hard this must be. I hope the boys are alright. And you. She was trying to be a good cat right til the end, and you were taking care of her, so she did not die alone.

Blogger slouching mom said...

I'm so sorry, LM.

Oh sweetie, I am so, so sorry.

I'm so glad that she wasn't alone when the end came.

Oh my gosh, I am soooo sorry. Losing a pet is like losing a member of the family. I'll be thinking of you guys.

I'm so sorry, friend. I was really hoping she'd pull through.

Wishing you peace today.

Oh Steph. I've been through this three times and it's rough. You know your beloved pet, member of the family, is suffering, but oh the loss.

I am so sorry. (HUGS)

Blogger Sarcasta-Mom said...

Poor Pandy. At least she isn't suffering anymore. I'm so sorry for you and your boys.

Blogger ExPatSW said...

Sorry...so sorry. Kiss the boys for me, hug Hilly, and you and T hug each other for me. I know how much you will miss her and am thinking about you all. I'm glad you were with her and she was at home.

Sitting here all teary thinking about all of the wonderfully funny (and stupid) things she did. Sprinkle some milk on her grave for me, please.

Blogger Mad Hatter said...

Blogger Nancy said...

I understand, twice.

I am so sorry for the loss you are feeling.

Blogger melissa said...

I am sooo sorry. I totally know how how you feel. I had to put two cats to sleep this past year. Both of them were VERY old and sick, but it doesn't make it any easier. But you were with her until the very end, and that is really special.

Blogger ewe are here said...

my heart breaks for you and your family. *sweet dreams pandy*

Blogger Stimey said...

Oh, I am so sorry. I can imagine how sad this is for you. It's nice that she was at home and with you. It's really hard to lose furry members of our families. My thoughts are with you.

Blogger Mrs. G. said...

This is so very sad.

Blogger Gunfighter said...

Sorry for your loss, LM. Losing a member of the family, two-legged or four, is never easy.

Blogger the pink report said...

Ugh. I'm so sorry, S. I am still haunted by the memory of putting one of our cats down. The thing that made it bareable was knowing she couldn't feel anything. Having to witness that must be so heartbreaking. It brings tears to my eyes.

That's a beautiful picture. I hope the boys are too young to be too sad. I dread the day when our current cat has his last day-- he belongs to my 8-year old.

You lost your cat on my wedding anniversary.

Blogger the pink report said...

bearable. Geez, I'm not dooing gud with the grammar tooday.

Blogger Lady Liberal said...

I am so sorry... :(
Fare thee well, sweet Pandy...and a pint of catnip for your journey!
Hugs to you, the Huz, and your sweet babies.

Sorry to hear about your kitty. They are a big part of a family.

Blogger Magpie said...

Oh hon, I'm sorry.

(We had a Jellicle cat, too - named Jellicle, actually.)

Blogger Mom101 said...

Oh sweetie, I'm so sorry. My own cat moved on to that great scratching post in the sky this past summer so I really do feel you. I think you're really lucky that you were there with her and not in some vet's office. RIP Pandora.

Blogger Jen M. said...

May she rest in a place full of things a cat would love.

Blogger newnorth said...

Im sorry. She's beautiful and I'm sure was really sweet.

i'm so sorry for your loss. :(

Blogger Joker The Lurcher said...

so sad for you. its horrible to lose one of the furry members of the family. a big virtual cuddle from joker, who, though not known for his love of cats, has a big heart.

I am sorry for the loss....but glad you do not have to watch her suffer anymore!

Blogger dawn224 said...

there is no pain that compares to saying goodbye to a cat - or that describes th empty place they leave behind.
