|07:02 pm - And Now Buddy|
Buddy died today. He had thryoid surgery today because his thyroid levels were going back up again despite two radiation treatments, and were again hitting the level that the pills he was taking to keep his thyroid levels down were as problematic as his thyroid levels being up. He was 17, and the vet said he looked fine after surgery, woke up, and then died an hour or so later. Three cats, in a bit over a year, with one of them only being 10. We're going with teaotter to the Humane Society this weekend to get her another cat. This is especially hard for her because she didn't have pets growing up, and so Buddy was her first cat.

I am so sorry that you all lost your Buddy. My thoughts are with you.
sorry for your loss. I hope that the trip to the shelter gets your house a gentley owned feline who has fallen on hard times through no fault of their own. A win-win solution.
Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry. :(

I am sorry to hear it.
Oh, geez, I am SO sorry to hear this. My parents lost 3 dogs in a little over a year a few years ago, so I know, a little, how hard this can be.
I'm so sorry, guys. Sympathies for the two-legged and four-legged folks in your household.

My condolences to you and your family.
My condolences. It is so hard losing a kitty. Truly heartbreaking. Some people avoid going out to get another kitty, but I think the new kitty so often consoles you in your sadness and helps you through your loss by just being there for you.
Its not like rebounding relationships. I don't think anyone ever regrets getting a sweet animal companion.
I'm sorry for your loss.
*hugs* Thinking of all three of you.
