Farewell to the Ditz

Prickly little Ditzy passed away Saturday night. Here is a photo of her from last month.



No more pacing by the window for Ditz. I'll never know what caused her to be such a quirky cat, but at least she was relaxed, affectionate, and purring her last days here.







Thank you all for the many kind thoughts here and on Facebook. Those of you who have met Ditz know she was quite the original cat!

Post Note: Tentative Diagnosis: previously undiagnosed heart disease.

I'm so sorry to read this news. Although it seemed to be quick for Ditz, something I always always hope & wish for.

So sorry to hear about Ditz. I lost 2 cats to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). They were fine one day, seemed a bit "off" the next and died the next. It's staggering with any loss, but when you have no warning and no time to treat them, it is especially sad.

Good luck catching Skinny Bear.

Bye bye, Baby. My Timmy was a little prickly and passed the same way - undiagnosed heart failure. He was a little feral and perferred to be pet by my feet instead of my hands, yet he purred all the time and you could hear him in the next room. I knew when he started losing weight, something was up, but he was 16 and still a pistol to get to the vet so I let it slide. One day, I knew it was time, and he did not struggle at all. Then I really knew. I know I gave him a good life, and I did not feel bad not taking in earlier. He wasn't pillable.

So sorry to hear of your loss. The "quirky" ones get deeper in your heart, somehow. She was a beautiful cat.
