We had to make a tough decision today about our senior kitty AC. I got AC right out of graduate school as a kitten. She was abandoned in an apartment. She was 18 1/2 years old. She had been going downhill quick. She stopped eating over the weekend and we found she was throwing up blood. At her age letting her go was the best option. She had a good and happy life with us. She was a beautiful all gray Maine coone in her prime. She was a special kitty who went through so much with me. I will miss her and so will my husband.
Thanks for the kind words. It is an unbelievably emotional decision to make. I dread having to come to this this point eventually for the pups. I am hoping that is far, far, far down the road. Godspeed AC, I love you.
