Transfer went fine.
And then I had to put my cat of 14 years to sleep, and it was unexpected (unexpected that it would be today). I suspected chronic renal failure, because I'd had three cats die of it previously (two in the last six years). None of them went so far down so fast. I expected that she would be around for another six months to a year, but we were not so lucky. Her values just wouldn't come back down since we started her on fluids on Saturday evening. Faced with only a miserable few more days of life, I made a very sad choice. Fortunately, I've been talking with DD about this, so she knew what "putting an animal to sleep" means, and how it is the kinder thing to do sometimes.
For them, not for us. Never for us.
