Subject: RE: [CHAT] callas/cats

Ok- I'll check online too. By the way Pam- I did end up putting my cat
to<br>sleep yesterday. She had a tumor that the vet said was likely
cancerous and<br>was going into kidney failure. Sweet thing, purred the
whole time. Think<br>she was relieved to go, and I cried the whole way
home. My husband had<br>bought a fabulous chocolate cake and what home
when I got back. Amazing<br>what a hog and chocolate will do to improve
nearly any situation. So, now<br>I'm down to 3 cats again. One keeps
looking for her and another has been<br>like velcro to me. We are all
going through an adjustment period
