Emmaline, 2002–2007

Dan and I had to put our girlie down last Wednesday. She had developed a blocked bile duct — most likely from a tumor — and the only other option was an expensive and risky surgery that we didn’t want (and couldn’t afford) to put her through. It was devastating, because it moved so quickly; she was fine May 2 and 3, and then she started behaving weirdly May 4. The vet assured us that this was the right thing to do, so we let her go on May 9. (Making this also Dan’s worst birthday ever, I think.) We miss her terribly. She will always be the most beautiful cat in the world.
