It is with a sad heart that I have to share that one of our two cats passed away on Tuesday. I adopted Little Miss Pandora from the Capital Area Humane Society on Valentine's Day in 2002. They didn't know her age, but figured she was 4-5 years old. When I took her to the vet, they guessed she was about 9 years old. So we can guess that she was between 12-17 years old when she died.
She was a small, persian-looking kitty with the silkiest medium length fur. She only weighed about 7 pounds. She had this meow that some referred to as a dying cow sound, but I thought it was so cute... except at 3 o'clock in the morning. Over time, she lost all of her teeth to gingivitis. However, she continued to eat hard food by lapping it into her mouth with her tongue and swallowing it whole. She also became deaf. The only way I knew that she was deaf was because we could run the vacuum right by her while she was sleeping and it didn't wake her up.
She was such a sweetheart and we are going to miss her very much. Here are some pictures of her throughout her life with us.
