It is with great great sadness that I write to tell you of the passing of Nudge on Christmas Eve. After days of feeling poorly and being on an IV at the vets I picked her up and brought home only to see that she was even worse than she was before I took her in. I syringe fed her and gave her sub Q fluids. anti nausea meds and pain meds at home. It wasn't working and I could see she was very uncomfortable. I decided to let her go. The decision was not easy but I had run out of options. I gave her a big girl dose of buprenorphine and took her down to emergency early morning on Christmas Eve when Nicole was working and she helped Nudge pass peacefully in a matter of seconds. She looked like she was just sleeping and I held her in my arms and wept. My baby girl was gone. I wanted to throw up. Her bed is still in front of the fire and non of the other cats have gone in it. I never thought I would lose her so soon. Never.I adopted Nudge from you in 2006. She was a mega colon cat who had been dumped because of her health issues. She was always so happy and relaxed, loved being brushed and sleeping above my head in bed, snoozing in front of the fireplace on her back and snoring and generally lolling about in any bed that has a heatpad under it. There was no adjustment period necessary when she came here and she was always accepting of new cats that came in here. In short she was a lovely cat and my good friend. I cannot believe she is gone. Thank you Carol for giving me Nudge. I know you said it was to make up for sending me home with that bad ass Jenny Two!Nudge will never be forgotten. Never.
What a beauty. So sad to lose her. May your memories comfort you.
