Knitting with the Monsters...

My life with two toddlers and two cats, all of whom are out to drive me nuts and destroy my knitting!

RIP Ziggy
October 2004 - October 2006

Today we got the news our beloved cat had an advanced stage of Feline AIDS. He went downhill very fast and I'm left feeling somewhat guilty that I thought he was just moping. This morning they thought there was a slim chance that it could be anaphalatic shock from a bite or something, but after getting off the phone 10 minutes ago, he is in a coma and it will be minutes before he's gone.

Ziggy was a lovely cat who was wonderful and affectionate and who suffered the most from our interment in the apartment. I wish we could have treated him better but it was the best we could do and he was so happy these last few weeks - I am glad for that. We love him and will mourn his passing. He was too young and I am only thankful that it illness didn't drag on.

OMG! He was looking so cheerful only a few weeks ago. I guess you have to be thankful he didn't suffer for long. Hope you guys are all OK.

Astral hug to you.

It's awful to lose a beloved family pet. I know how I felt when my cat was run down by a car a few years back. I really feel for you.
