We had to help our sweet Tallulah to the Rainbow Bridge today. Before Christmas, she was peeing out of the box. Tests showed an infection and the start of kidney disease. She had 2 weeks of antibiotics and then an antibiotic shot. She was down to 4 pounds despite her thyroid being in normal range ( on meds). She had gained a little weight when checked at 2 other visits. The xray showed nothing and the ultrasound yesterday showed nothing. I knew when I was told she lost a pound in 9 days that it was time and the vet agreed. I asked for one more day. My husband and I both gave her all our attention yesterday. She watched cat videos on my laptop, chased the laser, ate treats and whipped cream. We had a day that I will never forget.
Tallulah showed up in 2006, I thought Jinx had escaped because they looked similar. She was always sweet to us. She was especially close to Noel and Polar Bear. I brought her to say goodbye to them and they each gave her a head bump, they knew.
I won’t be posting for a few days. My Friendly Fill-In co-host will still be running the hop tomorrow so you can check Four-Legged Furballs for the fill-ins.
