RIP Kiki 2004-2010
Since my furkids are part of my blog, I figured I should post about Kiki, aka my bitch cat. Kiki was diagnosed 2 years ago as having HCM (a heart condition). She was at that point given less than 6 months to live. She far surpassed that, which I chalk up to her nasty attitude and her will to live :-) A few days ago, Kiki had a stroke that did damage to her hind end. She was in obvious discomfort so I brought her to my vet to be put to sleep. He examined her and said that he would predict a major stroke for her in the next 24 hours so that made me very sure that I was making the right decision to put her to sleep.
The house is much quieter with her gone--probably because she growled more than our dog. I will miss her miserable little fur self.
