RIP Lady Mew

27 February 2016

Those of you who have been with this blog for years, back before I only really put up reviews might recall Lady Mew. Very sad to report that I had to have her put to sleep on Friday :(

She’d been losing weight, and so we took a trip to the vet. Her heart murmur had gotten worse, she’s had that since birth I think, so she was put on heart medication. And she seemed to improve. But then she got a bit lethargic, and on Thursday she wasn’t interested in her dinner and just wanted to lie in her bed. She wouldn’t eat again on Friday morning so I dropped her into the vet first thing.

This time it was her liver that wasn’t working, so the vet put her on a drip to flush her out, but in the afternoon she took a turn for the worse. And she was just so weak that the decision had to be taken.

Poor Mew, she was a great cat. She really loved people, she’d trot down the stairs whenever she heard anyone come home, mewing to say hello. And head-butting you gently to say hello.

The boss of the house where all the other pets were concerned.

    Heartbreaking news, it’s so sad when one of our cat-people go. At least they can go gently into that good night. Condolences.
