Sad News

We had Sister Francis put to sleep today. Evidently running away was a sign that she was very sick. I found her having a seizure Tuesday night and then this morning she was having another one that lasted at least an hour- she was still having it when the vet put her down.

I know animals are animals. They are not people. There are people suffering all around me- and that is much more horrific than losing your cat of 12 years. But Franny was a part of our family and she will be missed.

Awww....I am seriously feeling for you. Not sure if you remember, but about 14 years ago, my dad got a Siberian Husky, Shadow. Well, after dad died, I always took care of him.....so, when I got married, Shadow moved South too! Well, about 2 months ago, I had to put him to sleep. It was HORRIBLE. I still cry and miss him so much!

Ok the comment by jay and tammy tropt, made me tear up. HOW SAD.

Shannon I am so sorry for you and your family. She was part of your family for such a long time. I already dread the day when our Maxine is gone.
