Could it get any worse?

Yeah, it did.

Honestly, I could not make this up if I tried.

She had a stroke a few months ago, and made a really remarkable recovery. We kept saying how lucky we were. They told us she was going to be blind. They were wrong. Her sight came back. She seemed happy.

Until this morning. She had a second stroke, much worse than the first, and there was no chance for recovery.

I'm going to see if I can't have the other cats put into some sort of suspended animation life support. I simply cannot deal with another pet loss anytime for at least the next 10 or 20 years. Or 30.

She was a very good girl. She had nothing but disdain for everyone except my son and the dog. Oddly enough this affection for the dog only started after her first stroke. Before that she wouldn't give her the time of day, but afterwards, I think maybe she found her size comforting. She would sleep curled up next to her.

I loved her because she had an ungrateful attitude, the way all good cats should be.
