Is it Time to Say Goodbye to an Old Friend?
Princess Mocha has been with me since 2011. She has been a wonderful kitty. She and her brother Jackson were both adults when I adopted them. I said then that I would never re-home them, that they would be with me until the end of their lives.
Jackson passed a couple years ago. We believe that he had eaten a rat that had been poisoned. We don’t use any poison baits, but Jackson had hunted the area quite enthusiastically, and the neighbors likely do use the rodent bait.
Princess Mocha has been getting quite frail and has been having trouble keeping food down. I noticed yesterday that she has at least one lump I could feel, and if there is one, there are likely others.
We will be taking her to the vet tomorrow, and see if there is anything to be done.
