i was in at the vets visiting her. the vet said that despite 3 different IV anti-nausea meds, and appetite stimulants, she still was retching and refusing to eat. four days was long enough to try for her.
i felt like shit determining the death of this very sweet and lovely cat who was so glad to see me that despite of how ill she felt, she still rubbed and purred and licked and told me how happy she was that i was there. she died with her tiny sweet little face cupped in my palm.
rest in peace baby.
