No Good News

daisy_knotwise let Bilbo out of the bathroom this morning and went and sat on the couch with him purring on one knee and Katie sitting on the other. A little before ten, I put him in the cat carrier and took him to see the vet.

The nurse weighed him. Bilbo was down to four-and-a-half pounds, pretty much skin and bones. The vet looked at the growth in his ear and gave him a shot of a sedative so that he'd relax and sleep, since he clearly wasn't happy being at the vet.

We talked briefly. There really wasn't anything they could do to fix his problems. And it was time for him to go.

We'll get his ashes back later and sprinkle them under the maple tree with his sister, Shvaughn.
