Smokey went in for her CAT scan this morning. Unfortunately, the masses were much larger than anticipated and the resulting biopsy revealed that it was a very aggressive form of cancer. My mom and dad decided that the best thing would be to not wake Smokey up from the anesisthia.

She passed away in her sleep early this afternoon. Thank you to everybody who sent me their thoughts and feelings. It has helped me a lot this week.

Smokey went to meet her maker as silently as she would stalk any prey. I will miss her very much.

I feel for you. Here's a sappy poem the nice people at the vet's office sent me, it makes me cry like a kid every time I read it.

When an animal dies that is loved by someone, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food and water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remembered them in our dreams of days gone by.

The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. The bright eyes are intent; the eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to break away from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. YOU have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together.

(Yes, it's terribly sappy, but I can't hardly read it without misting up. I'm such a sap!)
yeah - that got me sniffling. It never fails - the idea that when you die good things will happen always makes me cry in that "they're gone, but it's going to be alright" type of way.

Thank you :)
I extend my deepest sympathies. . . . losing Sebastian hurt worse than anything for the longest time.

Just remember Smokey on the prowl. . .in heaven, I bet she's giving Sebastian some pointers ;-)
