Goodbye My Sweet Friend...

You will always be in my heart.

[Thank you all so much for your comments and condolences during this time. Every single one of them has made me cry.
I will post again when I regain strength. Right now I just need some time with my thoughts...]

Another day passes...

I'm feeding her with an eyedropper now, just to get something in her stomach.
She's barely even opening her mouth.
I'm worried that even that is hurting her.
She looks so miserable.
But this is my friend, my baby, my kitty.
I can't possibly make a decision.
Am I selfish thinking that she'll get better? Letting her go on like this?

I don't know what to do...

My poor sweet little girl... <3

Sick kitty

She's going from water dish to water dish, but not drinking anything.
It's so hard to see her like this.
It's breaking my heart...

Withering Away...

Every day she gets a little skinnier.

She eats and drinks, but not very much.
The vet says that it's most likely heart and kidney failure.
It looks like she has gone blind in one eye, and half her body has become weak and almost unusable.

She hobbles around the house.
But she doesn't seem to be in so much pain that she complains about it.
She just smiles and purrs and follows me and the babe around (to the best of her ability).

 2 lb shoulder-riding kitty.

 Checking out a sun spot together.

Soaking in the warmth.
I'm terrified that her time with us is slowly coming to the end. 
I'm hanging on to her with hope that her strength will carry her into each day. 
And cuddle her when she is feeling weak.

(Side note: Her voice never fully recovered. Doc says that with that one sickness, it probably kick started all the other failing organs in her body, since she's so old. It was only a matter of time before she came down with something that lead to these other issues. He said we could run all kinds of tests to verify, and then put her on medication. But, he doesn't highly recommend it because of her age. Right now, we're just sticking by her and trying to make her as happy and comfortable as possible.)
