Re: More bad news cont.

years old with multiple medical problems (all untreated as she doesn't 
tolerate any intervention), and today was acting like she was just dying 
of thirst, despite the fact that she had drank a ton of water.  I called 
the vet and took her in, fairly sure this would be the last trip to the 
vet for her.  And it was.  I opted not to do a bunch of tests to 
determine exactly what was wrong, as all the possible options weren't

I'm very sad, as I've had her since I was in graduate school and she's 
moved all over the country with me, but I did what I thought she'd be 
happiest with.  So, I'm back down to 2 cats, and now I'm outnumbered in 
the house by boys (George and Calvin).  I'm not sure either of them have 
realized that Chessies is gone yet, but I'm sure they will.
