BLINKED OUT

Thursday, one of gma's cats, Blinky, wasn't acting right. Over the years he lost his teeth and became very thin, but was still very active and lovey. Not lethargic like we found him. We took him to the vet where he was diagnosed with diabetes. We then had to get him to an ER downtown. They took him for 2-5 days of treatment and observation before he was supposed to be released with a twice daily insulin treatment regiment.

Well, didn't work out that way. They found a growth in his stomach, something wrong with his brain, and he was unresponsive to treatment. Basically came the hard decision to put him through torturous treatment that had very little chance of working, or putting him down. We had to go with the latter. It wasn't an easy decision and not a pleasant experience all around.

Blinky was a good cat and a sweetheart. I'll miss him.
