Dad Terry here today. On Thursday, just two days after our dear Zoe came home from the hospital, her Mom and I made the most difficult decision to let her go. Our sweet girl was not improving, as we so hoped, instead she was getting worse, lots worse. Our sweet Zoe passed peacefully while laying in her Mom’s lap.
We’re all pretty sad here and we all miss that dear girl. Zoe was her Mom’s puppy, following her everywhere throughout the years. Zoe would often be found curled up with her Mom on the couch. Zoe almost always slept with her Mom or, quite often, on her Mom. Sadly, those loving and cherished moments are no more.
Our Zoe was the cat that really didn’t want to come home from Kitten Action Team when I went to adopted Angel Gracie and a companion. She leaped the 3-gate high barrier during the introduction period here asserting her independence right off the bat. She, as many of you know, faced multiple surgeries to remove huge furballs from her tummy and had several teeth removed with dental surgery. Poor Zoe was not tolerant of anesthesia at all.
Our Zoe was also a Stage 2 CDK kitty and a rare one at that. Typically with Chronic Kidney Disease the disease progresses and the kidney values get worse. Not our Zoe. Her numbers actually improved and her numbers on her last test were close to normal. The lymphoma was something she could not beat.
Angel Zoe, your Mom and I miss you dearly and there will never be a day that goes by that we don’t remember you and the joy you brought to us. We will love you forever sweetheart. Thank you for letting us love you and thank you for loving us and for sharing your earthly life with us. Love and hugs dear girl, rest easy, you’ve more than earned it.
