Munch traveled Over the Rainbow Bridge
This was a sudden passing because she was fine until Friday evening. She didn't come to dinner and I thought she was just tired. I noticed on Saturday morning that she was laying in the middle of the living room floor and her breathing was a little shallow. She never laid in the floor because that would mean she might have to socialize with the dogs. I picked her up and placed on her bed. I brought her some water and she drank it all up. I told Mark if she was still feeling poorly on Monday, he was taking her to the vet. This was around 3:00 pm. I kept an eye on her all evening. She was going downhill and I could see it. Around 10:30, I fed Jag, and went to see if she might want a bit to eat...I picked her up and called for Mark because he breathing was really labored. He came in and she quietly died in my arms. I have to say Mark stepped up to the plate. He helped me find a munchie size box to place her in because it wasn't something I could do. He took her to the vet on Monday to be cremated because our backyard is all rock so she can't be buried there. The vet sent us a lovely sympathy card today. They tell us we can pick her up in a week or so.
I haven't figured out how Jag is handling it. He seems to be a bit more cuddly now so I am not sure if he is missing her or not.
