“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”

I’m not going to post today. This morning Fern, one of my cats collapsed. Her legs gave way. I had to wait hour and a half for the vet’s to open. They took her right away. The vet said her heart is enlarged, is in Afib and her breathing is labored. She is on oxygen right now, and he has some tests he wants to run. I am so hoping he is able to help her get better. I can’t even wrap my head around the only other option.

The vet will call me later in the day with an update.

      Thanks so much, Richard. Fern is such a fun cat who has harassed the dog from day 1 of Gracie’s arrival. I’ll take the best wishes and hope they work.
