When Krystine moved out in October, she took with her the cat who had become hers by virtue of the fact that the other cats were picking on her to a point where she would actually pee herself when cornered . Since Krystine's room was in the basement where the other cats couldn't go, it made the perfect haven for a bullied kitten. It does get better! ;c)
A month or so ago, Missy was diagnosed with a tumor on her tongue. As it goes, the surgery to remove it is prohibitively expensive and not guaranteed to actually improve her quality of life so we had a discussion about what happens next. Krystine agreed that Missy would likely need to be putdown but needed to sleep on it . Then Missy started showing improvement so we were hopeful.
The hope has run out. :c(
About a week ago she stopped eating again so Krystine made the responsible (and very difficult) decision to euthanize her. They are at the clinic now.
Not a happy day.
