My precious Babe, the star of "Giving a Cat Fluids: An Illustrated Guide," passed away this morning due to congestive heart failure. She fought a long, good fight against her mounting illnesses -- kidney problems, thyroid problems, high blood pressure and inflammatory bowel disease -- always bouncing back against all odds, maintaining her composure through sometimes horrific symptoms. She went quickly after getting fluid in her lungs. She'll be in our hearts always. -DMB
Thanks so much, Donna. I've tried to prepare myself for this day for a long time, but it still was wrenching. It is a comfort to know she was loved and well-cared for in the nearly 13 years I shared with her.
