BowtoMogul: Since I'm getting in on this TF thing I decided to finally share my kitten with all of you. (She's much older now) [img.fark.net image 850x1419][img.fark.net image 850x508]We named her Phantom, if she were a boy it would've been Harvey.
Real Women Drink Akvavit: We gave it our best shot
Real Women Drink Akvavit: Good morning, Caturday folk! I hate to start the day out this way, but for those who were following Moo Kitty Sissy Doodles the best feral Lawn Warrior to ever sanctify my hand with her claws, she has sadly charged the Rainbow Bridge. Her coronavirus test came back positive, she was sliding very quickly and exhibiting neurological symptoms, so Wednesday was spent getting lots of love, being told stories and lots of chicken baby food before we helped her across just before 7 pm.We gave it our best shot, but with acute FIP, there's really nothing you can do. Many cats survive coronavirus, but there are always those unlucky few whose illness take the course Moo's did, and in those cases it is 100% fatal. My mom and I are both devastated - I was SO CLOSE to having her socialized enough to get to the vet for Felv/FIV tests. shots, etc and then just having a ticked off cat in my house for a while! - and my mom is frantic about the other cats that roam the neighborhood, but I'm going to focus on the positive. I'm remembering the happiest day of Moo's life and it wasn't spent being hand fed baby food on the bed I made for her on my bathroom floor. That was terrible, though she was purring. The happiest day of her life was in the back yard, killing invisible fairy dragons. There must have been a whole swarm of them, because she was busy at that for a while. She won, of course. :-)So, just like every other death I've been through, let's not be sad (though I am) and dwell on loss, let's celebrate the good things we do have and just post pictures of cats.Thanks everyone for your help and support. I really can't thank you all enough./I might be a bit scarce, but I'll be around

gremlin1: You did the best you could for Moo kitty. She was socialized enough that she came to you when she needed you.She was not alone at the end and you have closure. Without you she would have been alone and unknown at the end, instead she found love and comfort.
