I am devastated, RIP my lady Petal cat (2006?-2021).
Only the week before, I reported that Petal had sniffed out a mouse at the back of our house (she did nothing about it once I had opened the back door).
Last week I was at the vets three times with Petal, her presenting complaint was me asking if she could possibly have had a crisis of confidence after the mouse incident because she didn’t seem herself (she hadn’t). A few days later I was crying on Manchester Road (you’re not allowed inside the vets at the moment). Poor Petal went downhill in the space of a week. She had not been eating as much for a while but had been completely normal in all other ways.
Last Sunday, however Petal stopped eating altogether. Long painful story later the vet tried a few different things and Petal was booked in on Friday to have further tests, but Thursday evening was the real start of the end for her.
I’m only blogging about Petal because I would always post about my animal friends.
We adopted Petal with her mother Flower in 2008, Petal we think was 14 or 15 years old when she died.
I can’t believe I have no cats (sad face).
^ One from years ago when we had three,
Hug your pets
