Thread: The Duchess has passed.......

  1. #1

    The Duchess has passed.......

    Here's the sad news...... Duchess had to be put down. She had cancer, and on her last day, she was in very poor shape. She couldn't walk without staggering, and she just collapsed and didn't get up again, and she wasn't interested in food or water. This was actually a while ago that this happened........ she had been off for weeks, going off her food. She just got thinner and thinner, weaker and weaker...... We took her to the vet, who prescribed a medication for her, that unfortunately didn't work..... So I had to make the decision to have her put down..... I miss her..... she was very attached to me......... and I to her.......

    Dear JALB, I am so very sorry that you have lost your beautiful and beloved Duchess. My deepest sympathy to you and your family and all who love and miss and grieve her.

    Duchess is whole and healthy again, now a glorious Angel at the Rainbow Bridge. Love is eternal, and she is with you always.

    Rest in peace, darling Duchess. Please send some purrs to the hearts of your dear family members to reassure them that all is well, you and they are together forever, and you will welcome them Home.. One Fine Day.

    I'm so sorry you had to say goodbye to Duchess. She is free of pain now, but you will miss her of course. Keep the good memories!

    Rest in peace, Duchess!
