Puss-Puss is with Den-Den3 now

at the Rainbow Bridge. Last night, she lay quietly watching us from the hallway; too quietly. She looked like she was breathing hard and not feeling good. My hubby rushed her to the emergency vet where they said her hyperthyroidism most likely was affecting her heart. She was having difficulty breathing and they drained the fluid from her lungs and put her in an oxygen isolett (like a small incubator), as well as taking x-rays and other tests. They said to pick her up before 8am to take her to her regular vet. At 3am, the vet called us to say she was having difficulties and they were draining her lungs again, but in his opinion she had a 50-50 chance at making it to morning. She did make it and was doing better than the vet really expected, but very fragile. They called ahead to a vet hospital that could accomodate oxygen with 24 hr. supervision (my own vet couldn't). They were prepared and ready for her. On the 10 minute drive, she died in my arms. I can't believe how fast it all happened! She was originally Den-Den3's kitty. He found her as a scared, 3mo abandoned kitten and they were so good together. Den-Den3 went to the Rainbow Bridge 2/2/98. Puss-Puss joined him this morning (2/2/05). I take comfort in knowing they're together again.

Oh, glasslass, I'm so, so sorry! :sad: I know there's nothing any of us can say at this point. Just know that we're all with you now, and that Puss-Puss is in a very happy place, and she knows that you love her.

I am so sorry for your loss, and I hope you take comfort in the fact that you gave Puss Puss a wonderful life.

I am very sorry for your loss. I'm sure your cherished kitty knew how adored she was, and enjoyed a wonderful life as your companion and friend

Such a sweet and lovely photo you have included of your two little fur-angels. I'd never had the privilege of seeing either before.

What a coincidence they both went to the Bridge on the same month and day. I'm sure they are together again, DenDen and Puss-Puss reunited.
My deepest sympathies to you.

OMG!!!! Glasslass, I can't believe it!! I'm crying right now, because I know how much you loved her!!!

Den-den3 must be so happy to see her again though, and I know they're both watching over their mommy. God bless them, and my condolances to you and your family!!

Thanks everybody! I had to wait a couple days to come back on here because I knew I wouldn't be able to hold back the tears. You don't know how much you all have come to mean to me! You were here for me when Den-Den4 was attacked in July and you're here for me now when I need it. That is so wonderful! I have to post one more picture taken when both Den-Den3 and Puss-Puss were a little older and shows Puss-Puss a little more.
