Kato kitty and my TNF update

Yesterday we lost Kato kitty. She was 19 years young!  When we came home from India she did not seem the same and over the last two weeks she quickly declined, loosing weight and not eating.  She was diagnosed with hypo-thyroidism in May and has been on meds ever since, and also showed signs of renal (kidney) disease.  The poor gal fought as hard as she could, but yesterday after an exam at the vet she showed signs of shutting down, and also a rapid growing grapefruit sized tumor was found in her abdomen.  It was with very heavy hearts we had to say goodbye to Kato.  It has been a rough year for us loosing two pets in three months time.  We hope Kato found Peeky last night and is giving him hell!  We will miss Kato dearly, her silly face and crazy antics were such a joy in our home.





Also, my NextFamily update continues as of yesterday.  I took a break while we were off to India to meet Cailyn and now am able to continue writing.  I feel fortunate that I can share our story and inspire others that there is indeed hope, in India.

  5. Sorry to hear about Kato! Losing a pet is always hard :( They're a member of the family. My mom (Orion's Grannie above) lost our family dog Bear while we were in Mumbai so that was hard. But Bear had a great life, she was 16 :)

  6. So sorry to hear about losing Kato. Like Toban said it is like losing a family member when we lose a fur baby, take care.
