R.I.P, Marshall

Today, I had to make the decision I have known was coming. When we took Marsh to the vet on Saturday, he weighed 5 lbs. He was put on 3 diff meds, in the hopes of bringing him back to health. Today's appt, was just for a new fluid pack and a follow up blood test. But it was obvious he was doing worse. When he weighed in at 3lbs 15oz...I knew...his body is giving out.

This was my first time to put an animal to sleep. The vet told me there would be a 'death rattle'...but for was a large purr.
Thank you, Marsh for that gift.

I love you and our family will not be the same without you. I will picture you chasing birds and playing with Kitty.

From one cat mom, cat lover to another, I am SO sorry. I've been there and know how hard it is, how devestating it is. My two are indoor kitties but I lost my outdoor kitty that adopted me 5 years ago last summer. I still look for her in my yard. They stay with us forever.

Oh Karen, I am so sorry to hear about Marshall, believe me I know how hard that is and I´m sending you a big hug and I´m sure he is at the Rainbow Bridge playing with my girls and boy over there.
