Lucy

Cat-blogging

We are going to say goodbye to Lucy today. The vet gave us bad news yesterday. Her blood clot hasn’t dissolved, no matter how much Heparin they give her. Her back legs haven’t been getting a proper blood supply for a week now, and the muscles have deteriorated severely. There’s no hope for her to get the use of them back, even if the clot went away now.

Yeah, she could learn to drag herself around on a little cart thingy, but that would be too difficult for her (she’s not a big one for physical effort, that cat). Besides she’d soon develop gangrene anyway. Easiest to say goodbye now. I just hope I can get Peter through this ok… it’s his cat. His very favorite one.

  1. I am so sorry about Lucy, Patti! I think you did the right thing, but that still doesn’t mean it is easy. {{{hugs}}} to you and your son.
