My most precious Zoe

My most precious Zoe

My beloved Zoe was a gift from God. I adopted her as 2nd year anniversary of my son's death approached. She was only 6 weeks old and her white coat of fur was like wire due to worms. She won my heart within seconds of seeing her.

My Zoe had more than her fair share of health issues. At the age of 2 she developed Hepatic Lipidosis and with great care and several surgeries, she pulled through. Through the remaining 8 years she had repeated bouts of serious constipation that would result in hospitalization for several days at a time. These hospitalizations were very stressful for Zoe and the threat of Hepatic Lipidosis was never far away.

Each time I brought her home from her hospitalizations, I wept tears of joy and we would spend several hours snuggling. I would climb into bed and she would lay down, reaching for my hand. Zoe loved to sleep with her head resting in the palm of my hand. Once her head found my hand, she would wrap her little paws around my arm and pull it as close to her as possible.

This fall she started sleeping more, and I had assumed she was just getting older and needed more sleep. She showed no signs of pain and it wasn't until she stopped covering her pee that I found the blood. I called the vet and picked up the 'special' litter so I could capture a urine specimen. I cried when I saw how much blood she peed. The next morning, December 5, 2012, the vet called and asked me to bring her in immediately. After the ultra-sound, she told me that my most precious Zoe had Transitional Cell Carcinoma.

We attempted medication to shrink her tumor, and we spent hours snuggling. On January 3, Zoe went down hill very quickly. Her breathing was very labored and the pain prevented her from getting any sleep through the night. I knew it was time to say good-bye. Taking her the vet clinic was excruciating. I stayed with her, holding her and whispering love to her. At 10:15, on January 4, 2013, my Zoe left this world. My heart aches. I miss her so very much.

I was speechless to know about your lovable cat has suffered with this ill health. I just recall my pet which got similar blood when she peed but not as severe as your cat. I always use to find little time sue to my assignments online and my pet has really grown the disease inside, later it got a good treatment from vet and i ma happy she recovered. But i wish the same with your zoe, it's so adorable.

Thanks NEW

Wow… She is so beautiful. In fact, I haven’t seen any white cats like her, which is so white and the fur looks so soft and thick. And I can understand the emotional attachment you will be having with her considering the loss you had to face. Medical billing and coding companies

((((((((Suzy))))))))))))) I am so sorry for your loss of Samson. I understand how much you are hurting. My only small comfort was knowing that my Zoe was no longer in tremendous pain. Hold onto the sweet memories and allow yourself to grieve for Samson.

I am so sorry for your loss.. Zoe had someone to love which many don't.. Everytime I lose a pet I am in mourning for quite a while... It makes me think of never going through that again for a short while but then you come to your senses and realize there is always another cat that deserves a "special person" to love..I often worry what will happen to my 2 rescued cats if something happened to me.. I tell my son to make sure that they find loving homes and to take care of them but I guess it will be out of my control.. I look at them knowing of how no one loved them before me and i wish them to never have that feeling again... God Bless all Gods children who care for our little angels....
