Goodbye, flower

Skiffle went to the vet today to have a couple of rotten teeth removed, and the lump on the side of her face checked. The vet phoned a little while ago to confirm the suspicion that the lump was a tumour in her jaw. He said that she might live another two months or so, with palliative care. However, she's been having bladder and bowel problems very recently. So I made the decision to let them put her to sleep while she was already at the vets and under anaesthetic.
  I would have liked to say goodbye to her properly, but there was no point in bringing her home with a high risk that she'd spend her last weeks in pain and discomfort. So my moody, loyal, affectionate boss cat is gone now, aged 13.

The flat will definitely be emptier without her.

I'm so sorry to see this. I'd been hoping to see a post saying she was short a few teeth, but ok. Goodbye Skiffle :-(

OH G! I'm so so so sorry! I know it had to be a heart wrenching decision, especially on the spot like that. But you definitely did what was best for your sweet little curmudgeon.

Sending big hugs, sympathy and healing vibes your way.

Oh no! That sounds much like what happened to my Merlin a couple of years ago :(

I bet Diesel is missing her too.
