We had to put Shaila down tonight. She collapsed at about 5:45 pm, and when we took her to the vet, she had another but worse incident. It turns out that she had some sort of cancer around her heart, and her heart was surrounded by fluid. They drained it to make her more comfortable, but there wasn’t really anything that could be done. Merlin doesn’t quite understand what’s happened, and…well, we’re wrecked. Not much to say other than that.
I already miss her so much, but she’s with Barstow now. We just never imagined that we’d lose them only 4 months apart.
