daisy was euthanized.

Carol  ·  Dec. 21, 2013

I had forgotten that the vet thought she possibly had lymphoma, they reminded me today when we saw the fluid accumulation in her abdomen. I guess that is why she never bounced back after that virus. it was most likely the last straw for a little old homeless cat hanging by a thread. her last 12 hours were peaceful and quiet, I decided not to force feed or stick her with needles to run more fluids thru. I spent the time instead brushing and stroking her, telling daisy she was a very good cat. she purred, she slept, she looked comfortable.

I took her into the clinic first thing this morning. she passed peacefully and quietly and now she is free.

rest in peace daisy, sweet thing.

All of the people who had the privilege to know Daisy are shedding tears tonight. She was a lovely, sweet girl. I will miss thinking about her, being happy in a warm, safe place with loving people around her. Thank you for looking after her.

oh dear, she did look pretty tough the other day.
At least she had a peaceful end to her life.

Probably the sweetest cat I've ever met. I wish we could've done better daisy, from the beginning.
