Sweet Annabelle


UPDATE: Miss Nanna passed away on June 5th, 2012 at about 1:00 PM. RIP Annabelle!


I never thought I would ever experience so much of an emotional attachment to my cat Annabelle, and the sadness I am feeling over her is overwhelming.

The last few days she’s almost completely stopped eating, though luckily still drinking some water.

Took her to the vet today to learn that she has a large stomach tumor.

Never thought I would do this, but said yes to exploratory surgery on the Tuesday coming up.

If they are unable to remove the tumor, they are recommending euthanasia.

Bawwing ensued.

Part of me is hopeful that it’s an easy fix, but the reality is sinking in that she’s likely at the end of her life at 13 years old, and that she may have months to live at best.

It took all this to realize just how much I came to love Nanna, and appreciate how much she has been there for me (who knew a cat could do so much!).

If we have to put her down on Tuesday, or even later on, I think this is probably the saddest thing I have experienced since my father died 5 years ago.

Annabelle~Nanna~stinkerbelle~annasmell~buttbutt~and all the other nicknames we’ve given you over the years – you’ll probably never know just how much we love you, and always will.

**hoping for a good outcome**
