Poor Cowboy developed pneumonia over the last few days, and since it was just getting worse and worse, we ended up having to put her to sleep on Sunday. Such an affectionate and sweet cat – she will be missed for a long time.
Here’s Cowboy Cat. She’s a rescue who showed up about 8 years ago (so we estimate that she’s about 14 now). She’s very laid-back and we love her to pieces. She also doesn’t mind me balancing random items on her head when she’s snoozing. 🙂
Poor Cowboy. She’s been in the wars lately.
She’s just had a lot of her teeth extracted, so she dribbles a little bit right now (until she gets used to having the extra space in her mouth). Not only did she undergo dental surgery, she also caught conjunctivitis and a bad cold and cough.
So now, she’s not only got a sore mouth, she also has to suffer the nightly indignity of being manhandled into a big towel and having two syringes full of medicine jammed in her mouth for the next ten days.
Oh the plus side, she now has bright white sparkling incisors and much better kitty breath!
I hope she’s a forgiving (and forgetful) cat. :-}
