Yesterdaymorning, I called the vet first thing and I could come that afternoon. The vet saw immediately that it was wrong and when he did his exam, he felt a huge tumor in her tummy. An operation was not possible anymore. There was only one thing left to do, and that was make her death as comfortable as possible.
I held her the entire time and talked to her and petted her, telling her she was an amazing, sweet and beautiful cat.
Silvia loved being petted and especially loved sitting in the sun. During the worst heathwave she would still be outside, grilling on the tiles of my balcony. But she also really liked being next to me on the sofa, pressed against my leg.
She shared my life for the past 11 years, and I loved her so very much. I know I made the right decision, but that does not make it any less sad.
Thank you, Silvia, for everything you gave me. I love you and I will miss you.
|The weird angle made her eyes and ears look huge!|
