Oh my Chris I am so so sorry for your loss of sweet Mildred. Such a regal pose of her. I have two kitties in the Vet ICU right now both very very sick.

What a lovely portrait of Mildred - the raindrops give it a quality that really pulls at my heart. She was a beautiful girl and I am saddened to hear that you lost her too. Hugs to you.

Thanks so much. Tuxedo is still looking for his friends & calling out. Kody isn't going all that well either, we are taking her to the vet on Monday to see if we can do anything for her. Thanks everyone for your thoughtful comments.

Ohhhhhhh....Poor Mildred. But you know Chris, Mildred may have had a tough life before you came along but we all know that her luck and life changed once she became part of your family.

It hurts so much. I know. I will say a prayer for Kody, too. What are her symptoms?

You will ALL be in my prayers.

Sending love and great sympathy.

Thanks Laura. I guess Mildred at least had somewhere warm & dry to sleep & food when she was with us. Kody just seemed worn out & miserable, we took her to the local park & carried her around & then she walked for 10 minutes & it seems to have made her feel much better. She also has some new tablets to make her eat & I think they are helping. Thanks for caring.

Sorry for your loss of Mildred, Chris. I know how hard it is. She was blessed to have you in her life. It's been fifteen months since I had to say goodbye to my sweet, beloved furbaby and constant companion, Tigger. He had cancer. We got him as a kitten, and he lived to be 15.5 years young. I miss him so much. I'm thankful that I took many photos of him. And I'm looking forward to seeing Tigger and my other furbabies at the Rainbow Bridge someday. Praying for Kody.
