GOOD BYE LISA
Yesterday we took a very difficult decision. I called our vet and asked her to come because Lisa couldn't eat anymore since two days and made terrible noises when she tried to eat. I gave her only the liquid of the food, but even that didn't work. Before she started to suffer and starving we thought it is better to help her over the Rainbow bridge. She died in my arms and is certainly happy that she could join her beloved Max who went to the bridge in May 2005 at the age of 19. Since he was gone she had changed and became a solitary cat. She supported the others but not too close.
Here she is maybe 6 months old. Max was like a mother to her or rather a father, they were always together and she slept against his big belly.
Lisa also loved to watch running water
napping in special places
and adored watching Mr. G shaving or sitting and helping him at the computer
She also was a good model
These are the last pictures. She had this big ball at her cheak, the size of a ping pong ball. As long as it didn't disturb her it didn't bother us eather. But probably it became bigger and that's why from one day to the other she couldn't eat anymore. Our vet said that anyway there was nothing to do anymore because her whole head was full of tumors.
This is the last picture of her, shortly before the vet came.
Fortunately we had time enough to spoil her and say good bye, so it is not so hard for us. But still, the house seams to be more empty. This morning I didn't have to let her out of her room, clean the litter box, wash and brush her, I have to get used to that. Lisa was exactly 18 years and 5 month old.
