helga noticed she was slowing down over the past week. i think the anemia from her feline leukemia was finally bringing her down. today she went into hiding under the couch so we put her up in a cage with a soft comfy bed and her food, water and litter box close for her. i checked her when i got home from annabelle's birthday party and she was resting comfortably in her bed. when i checked her again after putting the barn guys to bed, she had already slipped away.
i believe brianne had the best possible death, a gentle downward slide without pain...it is one of the kind things about this disease..if they die of the anemia, it is mostly pain-free. brianne died peacefully in a familiar and comfortable place... the best home she has ever known.
rest in peace brianne. you were a real character and a love bug too. we are all going to miss you. and thank you to helga for the amazing care you give to our feline leukemia cats...you have made their home safe, full of love and care..you are their family who loves them best....and all of them love and have loved you best too....you made their house their home.
