My Kitty is fading tonight. She is 14 1/2 years old and was diagnosed recently as hyperthyroid.. but there wasn't much we could do to fix it at her age. She has lost much of her weight in the past month and stopped eating much in the past few days. Tonight she it seem she has had like a TIA or mini stroke. I am so sad to be saying good bye to her. "<br>
Her name is Nellie (short for My Darling Nellie Gray) For years she has been so shy she has been a recluse living in my room mostly. She sleeps in the crook behind my knee every night after stopping up for a snuggle and pet on the head. She got me through a miscarriage with my first pregnancy when she was just a teeny kitten. SO much history with one little animal.<br>
I hoped she would pass easily at home. She stresses tremendously anywhere out side that room and a car ride is the worst, let alone going to into the vet office. Her her heart rate was the highest my vet had everhad with a cat.. the thyroid .. but I know it was the fear too. She is very calm at home even up till the past week.<br>
So wish her well and a quick and easy passing. I am so sad to lose my best little friend.<br><img alt="" src="http://i100.photobucket.com/albums/m3/RaisingArizona/IMG_1808_1.jpg" style="border:0px solid;">

Patrice, thanks for being a good "human" and for all the love you've shown Nellie over the years. Hang in there.

I've been there. Burt and I were together for 13 years until she died at 16.<br><br>
I hope Nellie and Burt wil become fast friends on the other side.<br><br>
Prayers to you both.

Nellie is lucky to have someone who loves her so much. You mean as much to her as she does to you.<br><br>

So sorry to hear this. I know how dear our animal families are to us, and you've had a long relationship with your kitty.<br><br>
Hugs to you and yours.

I lost my dear old Yassir Aracat at age 18 last summer. I completely understand how you're feeling. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">

She is so beautiful...I am sure she will be greatly missed. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"><br><br><br><br><br><br>
Oh and if she doesnt pass and you dont want to take her in to the vet look for one that makes house calls...they cost more but they are out there for situations like this.

I hope Nellie meets up with my Navajo and they have a fine time chasing mice and lounging in the sun with no cares.<br><br>
