Had to Put Our Girl Kitty to Sleep

I cannot believe I am posting this information. Our kitty is only 2 years old. For the last few weeks she has not been herself and yesterday we noticed that her breathing was not normal. We we at the vet today and I was thinking that maybe she had asthma or a heart issue. I was never thinking that she had cancer. She started limping a week ago. I thought she hurt her paw. She had a tumor under her neck and had fluid around her lungs. She also had other tumors and had lost 2 pounds.

Treatment would have been to cut off her leg and treat the tumors with surgery, chemo, etc. And it may not have been successful. So we put her to sleep and sent her to kitty heaven.

So we are all very sad today. Her name was Panini and she was a really sweet kitty. Her brother is missing her right now. She is the one with the pink collar.

Panini, I will miss all the help you gave me when I was quilting.

So sorry for the loss of your kitty.

I am so sorry you've had to go through this. Bad enough when a pet is aging but when so young is very hard. But you did the right thing - would not have been fair to put kitty through all that. Savor the memories of her happy times with you.
