Sad day here.

Gertrude had to go to the bridge this morning. She just wasn't getting any better and hadn't eaten in a week with the exception of some force feeding.  She was just all confused and was still very wobbly.
Thanks to all for all the kind words, purrs and prayers.
Gertrude did like to be outdoors and go hunting.
**************
Have a great day.

  12. I am so truly sorry that Gertrude went to the Bridge. I was sad when I learned how miserable she was on coming home. It seemed sadly inevitable. But reality is a hard thing to endure.

    I love your fur babies very much. You and they too are a beloved family to me.

  32. I'm so sorry for your loss. Gertrude sounds a lot like Domino was before she had to leave for the Bridge. She would only eat if forcefed, too. You gave Gertrude a wonderful life and did the best you could for her.

  43. I'm so sorry, Marg. Gertrude couldn't have had a more loving home. She was free to live the life she chose, and now she's free from pain. Marg, when you get to the Bridge (not for a long long time, we hope), there's going to be an enormous stampede of love.
