It's a sad day in our house today .... our lovely orange cat .... Peaches, had to be put to sleep this afternoon. We will miss her dearly, but we can't be too unhappy cos she was 19 years old! She had been getting very frail for a while, which was to be expected and had been sleeping a lot. This morning she seemed her usual old self before we went out. Rylee had lay on the floor talking to her like he does every morning, but when we returned she was lay on the floor in the most uncomfortable position with her eyes and mouth open. DH picked her up and straightened her out a bit and lay her on her blanket, whilst he did this there was no response from her at all. We both spoke to her and touched her ... nothing. So we decided it was time to call the vet. We took her up wrapped in her blanket in the laundry basket. He said that she was an old lady and that we couldn't really expect much else. She was hypothermic and which he claimed was the best way, she wasn't feeling anything and wouldn't be aware of anything. So we left her with him and came home to remove all her stuff before Rylee wakes up from his afternoon nap in the hope that he doesn't notice .... but we wont be holding our breathe!
