My baby's kidneys had been ailing for the past year, and they finally failed her over Christmas. She bravely fought a losing battle, and I will never forget her love of her humans which she conveyed to us until her very last breath. We took her to the vet this afternoon -- she is now resting in our building's ample garden, very near the spot where we already buried Gypsy and Tiger. I want to believe that they are reunited in a happy place.
Apologies for not having been around lately (nor will I likely be in the next couple of days). I am crying as I type this, and as is so often the case, one major event follows on the heels of another -- more on the other things going on in my life later, at a more convenient moment.
I hope everybody else had a Merry Christmas -- and a Happy New Year to one and all, in case it should take me until next year to resurface here.
Lots of love to one and all!
