She began throwing up 2 days ago..on and off. She went to the hospital and got medicine. Today, she won't eat, and won't use the litter box. She is hiding in the pantry..by my canning pot. She is 12. I take her back in tomorrow. I think she'll be gone. I feel so sad..and I am reminded of my mom and her last days. This time, I am not in denial. We love Stella so much...our favorite water cat.
