167. Amen and Thank You
Saturday will probably be pretty rough, but I think I may be able to pick up PItski's ashes before then. Hard to write the words, Pitski's ashes. As long as her body was uncremated and at the vets (long story) I could perhaps think that she was simply away. Now I will see visually that she has passed on, in body at least. I want to bury her ashes, not scatter them.

BTW, her previous owner now lives in the same building on a permanent basis. She never asked about her kitty after she gave her to me. But I fear she will say I neglected her or something. Pitski was 17 when she passed away due to kidney failure, and it was a struggle the last two years to give her fluids and food. Even still, I think it was the offbrand cat food that did her in. I gave it to her because it was cold, and I hoped to be able to keep her going until I got her some more vet food. She ate some and then went into a rapid decline. I went to work two days before she died, and I noticed that she didn't greet me at the door as before, and I couldn't find her. I found her sleeping under the Christmas tree on the table and she was very ill. I gave her fluids and hoped she would revive with sufficient hydration. But the next morning I didn't go to work, and noticed things were awfully silent. So I took her to the vet, and the next day she died there after they gave her antibiotics and fluid. Nothing worked. I paid for them to cremate her and just now I will get her ashes.
