For those who knew her, Tashi passed away this morning after a brief illness. She was 17. I'm heartbroken about it, due to the circumstances. I took her to the vet for sub-q fluids to help perk her up, but she became so stressed while there that she went into respiratory failure and died. Needless to say, I'm pretty traumatized by it. I was not expecting to bury her today.

many hugs and much sympathy. she was a great cat!

my sparkie (the lynx-point siamese, you may or may not remember her) died of cardiac arrest when i had her at the surgeon to drain her chest for the probably dozenth time with her chylothorax. old cats -- and seventeen is very old -- are fragile.

you always did your best by her and every other cat i've known to cross your path. may tashi's memory be a blessing for you always.

She was very fragile. I'm sure it was just a matter of time, even if she hadn't been subjected to that stress. I'm just sick that her passing was traumatic (for both of us).

And thank you. She was a wonderful cat and I will always remember her.

Thank you. I appreciate it. I think I need distraction more than anything right now, so let me know if you want to do anything.

I'm so sorry to hear that, but I'm glad you had so many good years with her. She was very lucky to have you as a human.

I'm glad we had the time we did. I was greedy in wanting more, but there you go. And thanks.

Oh, dear. Farewell, Tashi.

Heaps of sympathy: be gentle with yourself tonight.

*sigh* Another cat of my acquaintance crossing the Rainbow Bridge. My condolences.

Randomly, there was a canyon wren singing atop the shrine at the baths at Tassajara this weekend.

Sorry to hear this. It's always hard, moreso when it's sudden. Feel free to drop by and visit if you need/want.

Thank you! It would be great to see you again. Give me a day or two to stop spontaneously crying all the time.
