Thanks, guys. Shandee
, it's been almost 17 years since we stopped the heroics on my first cat. In that case, it was diabetes that was ravaging Sonya's body. We gave Sonya insulin shots every day and finally her body couldn't take any more and she was in a lot of pain. So we released her. I swore I'd never do that to another pet.
I've just now cleared her things... and I'll have to vacuum my floor of kitty litter.
