I'm sorry I haven't finished posting about the kittens, and I promise I'll get to Fox's post soon. I've been preoccupied with a few other things, one of them being Sophia. We've been so worried about her and have taken her to the vet seven times since Seymour died in March. We thought she was just depressed because of Seymour's absence, but no one's been able to give her a diagnosis until today. Right now she's in heart failure at the hospital. Poor Sophia, she's in so much pain and is having trouble breathing, eating, and getting to the litter box. It's not something that can be cured, but we can take her home and manage her symptoms with meds until she passes away. It's impossible to say when that will happen because some cats can live for awhile with heart failure. But it feels like my heart is breaking for the second time this year. She's only six years old. The vet says the reasons for this kind of heart disease in cats is unknown. It just happens. We were supposed to leave today for a vacation in Oregon with my family, but needless to say that's not happening.
