Oola. 2005-2012

My sweetest (fussy, opinionated, bossy, adorable, pushy, cuddly, standoffish, more and more and more) cat had what turns out to be a small stroke Wednesday night, and another, larger stroke on Friday. After her vet visit Wednesday, the vet and I hoped she’d only had an ear infection that might clear up with an antibiotic shot. After the second stroke on Friday, which was clearly a stroke, she had a series of seizures on the way back to the vet, and I had her put to sleep at about midnight Friday, December 21. I miss her already. I will love her forever.

Off to the vet | EDIT: All good!

I’m off to a vet appointment this morning to have the beast seen to. Fell apart a bit on the phone with Mom last night. If she’s seriously ill (she doesn’t seem it, but this cough hasn’t gone) I don’t think I’ll be able to deal with it. Anyway. Cross your toes.

EDIT: She’s fine! The vet says she has feline asthma and gave her a steroid injection. I’m very – VERY – relieved.
