Kitty Heaven

Yesterday was a pretty sad day at the Valenti household... We took Corey (our faithful kitty who loves to lay by the sewing machine while I sew) to the vet in the late afternoon to get looked at b/c he has had poor p.o. intake and increased lethargy for about a week. We figured he had some kidney issues (what his brother Moses passed away from a few years ago), but when the vet palpated his abdomen he found a grapefruit-sized tumor. He only had a week or 2 to live and he soon would have begun to really suffer, so we decided to do the humane thing and have him laid to rest.

The worst part of all of this is that Sydney absolutely adored him,

but I guess the good thing about it happening now is that we don't have to broach the subject of kitty heaven quite yet. We'll miss you Corey!

so sorry to hear about Corey. Thank goodness he didn't have to suffer and good for you for being able to do the "right thing" for your beloved pet. I just hope I'm that strong when the time comes. g
