    Unhappy We lost another family member this morning...

    Well we lost another one of our sweet babies today. Mina's health started declining around the beginning of the week We took her to Companion Animal Hospital (who we've gone to for 10 years now) Thursday and she was put on an IV for 10 minutes or so to get some fluids back in her as well as some antibiotics. That night, her health got worse to the point that by 6pm last night, she would no longer eat or drink, and was so weak, she couldn't stand on her own without losing her balance and falling over.



    I sent Companion a message on FB around 2 am this morning about Mina's condition, and by 6 am, I not only got a FM message back from one of the staff, but also a text message. This morning we took her back to the vet, some of the staff and Dr Mattson met us there 45 minutes before they opened.



    In the end after some test, Mina's kidneys were shutting down fast. With those results, there really was no other choice.



    So yes, it's been a rough morning for all of us including poor Mina. Yes, we all cried (if you know me, you know how I am when it comes to my cats), but at least sweet Mina is in no more pain and is now "up there" with her past brothers and sisters. And of course, our other four babies here knew what was going on and are here to comfort us.



    Rest in peace baby girl...

    So sorry to hear Charles. My sincere condolences. I had cats most of my life and totally understand how you feel. I currently have 4 cats and they do bring me great joy. As my wife would say “I like them better than people”
