Juelez sitting inside the Christmas Tree
This morning was not one of our best here in the Baker household; we had to put out cat to sleep. Named "Juelez Santana" (a rapper), we called her "Kitty". Sadly she wasn't even 5 yrs old yet. Last year she was diagnosed with enlarged kidney's. The vet had said she would live a few years, but not the full life of a cat. Never did we expect it to be less than a year after being diagnosed. The past two weeks have been heartbreaking, as anyone who has a sick pet will know; just watching her fail day by day. The past 3 days she stopped eating and drinking, and just laid wrapped up in a blanket. I think at this point she was down to about 2 lbs. When I woke up this morning, knowing what we would evently have to do, we knew it was time. We held her with tears streaming down out faces as they gave her an injection to euthanize her. Thanks for the words of support in the threads this week. For anyone who has gone through this, you understand how these little creatures worm their way into your hearts and become one of the family. Juelez will definitely be missed, her little friend, our other kitty, who is almost 3, has been looking around for her, and is already missing her playmate. Thought I would share a few of our favorite pics of Kitty!
