@perloid I've never had a pet, but I've seen friends and I know they are part of the family (even the cats 🙂) So at least I hope she didn't suffer too much.
@ghostdancer We had dogs, cats, and sundry other pets as I grew up. I was never all that fond of the cats back then; more of a dog person. This one changed my mind since she was intelligent and affectionate, very much part of the family.
I think she had a fairly easy departure; the illness didn't seem to really hit her until the last 2 days.
