Dis sad nooz am frum EveryonesXWife:
My sweet little Anastasia passed away today.
I inherited her from an elderly friend who passed away two years ago. She is a Russian Blue and no one knew how old she is. She had been losing weight and her feet and joints were swelling, but she was happy and had a LOT of heart – and a BIG PURR! – so I took her to see our vet Thursday.
I was so afraid he was going to tell me it was time for her to go over the Rainbow Bridge, but instead he diagnosed her with Diabetes and put her on insulin. He said he believed she had a couple more years in her if the Diabetes was controlled.
I gave her the first injection Friday but the insulin dribbled back out after I pulled the syringe out. I gave her the second injection this morning, but gently pinched the injection site closed for a minute so it would not dribble out. She did fine and – and PURRED like CRAZY! – then ate a healthy meal. I checked on her a couple of hours later and she was in good spirits and feeling well, but when I took her diced turkey this evening for a snack, she was dead in her bed. I couldn’t believe my eyes. She was doing so well earlier today. But we never know when our time is up, do we?
