Some of you may remember a few months ago my post about my favorite niece, Danielle's cat Suger (pronounced Sugar and named because when Dani got her she thought was the color of light brown sugar). Suger was diagnosed as having low thyroid. We decided to go for the radiation therapy treatment. Before they could do this she had to be maintained at a normal thyroid level with medication. Her levels have been all over the place and as of week before last were still not stable enough tp satisfy her vet that she was ready to go for the rad treatment. Last week the poor little thing started losing control of her bodily functions and the vet feels that it is time for Dani to let her go. So, they are at the vets now. One of my other nieces who is a vet tech is going to actually do the procedure. They are having a little service and will bury her with other beloved family pets that we have lost over the years.....Henrietta the hampster, Candy, ChiChi, and Santana the Chihauhas, Priscilla the poodle, Boliver the duck, Carrol Channing the kisssing fish, Foxy the Pomeranian, and Cletus the cat. It is very sad for my Mom who has been Suger's caregiver most of the 17 years they have had her. It is very cold and snowy here and at about 10:30 last night Abbbey my Corgi started barking at the back door. Out on the deck was a beautiful long haired, fully grown, yelllow female tabby crying to get in. No tags or collar but has been declawed. Mother brought her in, gave her soem warm milk and she and Abbey are playuing like old friends. I am allergic to cats so I am keeping my distance as we try to find her home. If we don't she will join Mother's other cats Joey and Miss Kitty at her house that we still haven't sold because we can't find homes for the cats. My sister-in-law did take one of them, Fancy home to NC with her at Christmas. they have quite a menagerie (including a narcoleptic Daschund, Layla) so one more was all they could handle.
