Default Spirit (RB)

She was only 2 in August

Being FIV+ she'd always been small and somewhat delicate. She stopped growing at about 6 months.

And losing Dave whom she doted on she was pretty low for a while her stress overgrooming as a result left her almost bald but thanks to the spray Jill recommended that improved. In fact she was back to being fluffy and had taken to living in the kitchen but of late she had started to become more affectionate and even asked for petting and started to purr again and venturing in the living room now and again.

This morning I was starting a new job and she seemed unusually quiet although she used her box and had breakfast but she's always had days like this Dave once emailed to come home because he was sure she was dead come to think of it more than once...

I had a good day at my new job but I worried about her all day you know when your instincts nag at you when I got home she was curled up on her bed, still warm but dead. She doesn't look like she suffered, she passed in her sleep.

I hugged her and told her she was such a good little Floofy Monster as I couldn't possibly take time off work tomorrow I wrapped her in her bed and she's in the freezer until the weekend

I knew it was coming as my vet said when her FIV test came back positive "She may not live as long as you'd want her to" and I said "Isn't that true of everyone of them?"

But we only had her for 2 years and a week it doesn't seem fair

I guess right now she's climbed down the back of Dave's Heavenly throne and he's moaning that he's having to sit too far forward on his chair and it's doing his back in just like when she used to do that with his wheelchair

I'm so sorry, I've been there too many times myself.

I'm so sorry! It always hurts, and it's always too soon. However, I
can understand what you mean about Spirit. Reading her story I'm
reminded of Charky (RB), who had brain damage and whom we had for about
a year and a half before he went to the Bridge.
