Happy cat came to us--just walked up to the front porch one day over 15 years ago and said Hi-- I have come to live you guys!!
We had no dog at that time we were just like we are now animal---less!!!! We of course welcomed her in and from that day on Happy was so happy we called her Happy!!!!!
Happy had had many litters of kittens and she was no spring chicken.
We took her to the vets and he said she was 5 to 7 or maybe even 8 years old. He pointed out her spay scare and said it had been done with in a 6months to year but more like about 6 months ago!!! She was in very good health!!
Happy stayed in very good health for 14 years with us. We lost our Bambi June 3 2011 and she started going down hill from that time on, very slowly but still~~~~~~~.
She started eating more and not showing that she was eating more!!!
She keep losing weight. Tom had her to the vets many times!!
They kept telling Tom she is so old!! He had all the tests done on her. She was just old!!! She had all her teeth and they were in really great shape. Everything was testing good. 8 days ago she started to have seizures. She had 4 in total. They were very hard on her.
Tom took her to the vets Saturday morning and helped her to the bridge. She went very peacefully............ It was a hard day for us. It was a hard week-end!!!! We knew when we lost Zoie that Happy was not far behind. We are without now and the house is so empty!!
Tom will be coming home soon enough with a kitten --- one that purrs!!!!!! Happy didn't purr loud enough to hear her. To tell if she was purring you had to feel her!!! We have so missed that loud purr!!! Happy until the very end would not sit in your lap so we want a lap kitty this next time!! We miss her so but we knew this was coming. Zoie was a shock!!! I kind of hope we can be without for a while now. BUT if one shows up then we will have another animal.
All I have now are the coons and the birds!!! They will be my animals now for a while!!!
Hope you have a good week!!!
Love coming your way, Fern
