-It is so fucking hard for Mike & I to accept that Black Widow has passed on. She was such a unique & beautiful kitten. Every little thing is reminding us of her & it is going to take a long time to get over this. We pick up her ashes in a couple of days... At least she is no longer suffering but damn well miss her so fucking much.
;( She had heart disease at her tender young age of 4 1/2 months. The value in her heart that was enlarged just kept pumping rapid amounts of fluids into her lungs & the emergency vets did all that they could do. Even if it was caught in time, there may have been nothing that could have been done for her. After $1,500 has been spent on her, we would not have cared if it was a million $, if we could just to have her chasing bottle caps again with her broken meow & just her damn cute ways...
The last time we saw her was about 8 hours ago, laying all bundled up in an oxygen machine, perking up as she saw us enter the room. We had no fucking clue that would be our goodbye. We held such high hopes that she was going to pull through this & if she did have heart disease like the emergency vet thought, she may have been on meds her whole life, but we never expected her to pass on. We are thankful that it happened at the vet & not at home. Finding her dead in our house would have been even more devastating. Our hearts are filled with so much love for animals, even strays we feed outside & it hurts so bad to lose one of our own, even though she was not human, she was our child.
Rest in Peace Black Widow Bircher! We will always honor your spirit, we hope that you will always be with us & your 10 other siblings you left behind. We love you!
