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.
