Sadest Day of my Life
I had to say goodbye to my precious old girl. Tigger passed away Tuesday night due to Kidney Failure. An infection was pretty rampant and she had a temperature of 105.5 (100-102 is normal). She had been lethargic and not eating for 2 days and we realized she wasn't getting better. We had to make a horrible decision and I hope I never have to do that again. I do have 4 babies at home that depend on me and it helps some. I just keep expecting to see her in her normal spots and I am still shocked when I don't see her. I took this picture right before we left the hospital. She had been given IV fluids to rehydrate her and bring her temperature down so her little arm is bandaged to cover the iv. I miss her terribly and it's really difficult to not think about her. She was 20 years and one month old and was the light of my life. I am so thankful to have had so much time with her. She brightened each and every day.
