It is with a heavy heart that I share with you that today, May 1, 2014, that our cat Byte lost her battle with FIP and we were forced to put her to sleep. She was a peculiar cat with a very distinct personality. She did not like to be held, but would let you pet her when it suited her. After her hyper-thyroid surgery earlier this year the Vet diagnosed her with Feline infectious peritonitis (FIP) the disease is incurable and fatal. Most cats who develope the disease do not live very long after diagnosis.
Doctor said we prolonged her life about 5 months and what a wonderful 5 months it was, when she came home from the surgery she was like a changed cat, she wanted love and attention, you could hold her and she would lay in your lap if you let her. DeLeesa and I are thankful for these last few months but knew it wouldn't last, about week ago she stopped eating, and two days ago she stopped drinking water and I knew it was time.
So this morning, DeLeesa said her good byes before she left for work, and I took Byte to the Vet and said mine.
She was the last of the 4 we rescued back in 2000, we lost Blackie a number of years ago, and Tigger and Bit as you know left us this year as well. It's been a tough year for us when it comes to losing pets, but we are thankful for the time we were able to share with them.
