I lost my wonderful kitty Cotton yesterday. His kidneys had given out, and despite several heroic attempts by my fantastic sister the veterinarian in Oklahoma, Cotton came back home Saturday with his mind made up. He still did not want to eat, and I didn't have the heart to force him. When he lost his purring I knew he was too uncomfortable, and I couldn't let him suffer.
I couldn't have asked for a softer & sweeter little friend.
