Very Sad Lost My Cat Today
Sorry this isn't a Couples topic but I know a lot of you will understand how I am feeling. Picky (Pickle) was just 14, quite young for one of our cats. She was a feral cat and we adopted her when she was five, she would hiss and spit at us and hid for the first six months. Eventually she came out of her shell and joined in family life and wants her fuss from us as well. She was always fragile health wise as she had contracted fleas when feral and that caused her problems with worms in her bowel that always affected her.She was diagnosed with an over active thyroid about six months ago, unfortunately that caused her bowel to work overtime, mostly in the wrong place! At the vets today he noticed she had a detached retina caused by high blood pressure, she had lost weight and had a bowel disorder. He advised various treatments but thought it was kinder to put her to sleep. Even thought I know it was the right thing to do, she was always hungry and followed her round crying for food due to the thyroid problem I really miss her, and even though I have three other cats (all male) who I love dearly, it is quiet without her and I have lost my little girl.
