I know you were failing for a while. You hadn't quite been yourself, and the not eating and just kinda laying there were not a good sign. You went down so fast, I barely had time to realize what was going on. Finding you deceased in your cage was NOT a good start to the day. I can only hope that you went quick, and now you are out of pain.
I hope, when we meet at the stone bridge, you will be one of those who will vote to let me pass. Even though you were 'only another shelter cat', well...you had a piece of my heart, as do all the others.
Rest in peace, and with Bastet darling Rasberry. I will continue to love you, though you, and so many others are gone.
