R.I.P Aurora
« on: December 23, 2023, 07:47 »
So, over the past few weeks we noticed our 18Żyr old tabby cat Aurora has been failing, eating very little, shes seemed disorientated, falling over & doing her business anywhere except her tray, so last night we took the heartbreaking decision to let her go at our local vet.
This time of year seems to make things harder than any other time of year and some of you will remember that her brother Elliot who was 17Ż died a couple of years ago, it wasnt until we'd got home last night that it dawned on us that it was exactly 2 years to the date that Elliot died... life is very strange!
Fly high tuppence!

What a shame, but a grand old lady who lived her life as she wanted - inside on the sofa by the sound of it. You canĺt really wish for more.

So sorry to hear that but when time is up, it's up. I console myself that my little pal has gone knowing she's loved and it's over so quickly now. Still breaks your heart though.

So sorry to hear your news, Andy  :(
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

It is heart-wrenching to lose a much loved pet, especially when you have to make the decision.
She is there now with all her new mates (and some old ones).   What a grand old lady.   Mrs Bouquet
