-biggest sigh ever- Put down that glass of water: it's safe on any surface, now. I had my cat Northey euthanized yesterday afternoon.

She was still under the shade of the tree ferns where you in LJ land last saw her. At 3 PM, I'd gone out to check on her, and her breathing was harsh and labored, open-mouthed gasping. After two phone calls, we were on our way to the after-hours vet. A painful hour and a failed oxygen treatment later, she was dead in my arms.

Everyone is being really, really nice to me, considering that this is a cat that died after 13 very-cared-for years. Even her death expenses are mitigated for me by her cat health insurance. I find myself re-reading Jilly Cooper, sappy fiction where it's OK for characters to dissolve into endless tears over their dead animals.

Behind the cut: Northey's glamour shot. )
