gem225: me holding my two cats, Cisco and Circe, as kittens (blode katzen)

Thank you for all the wonderful birthday wishes. I had a great weekend with Greg. Saturday we had a lunch at Henrietta's Table followed by a scrub, massage, and wrap at Le Corbu and a trip to Spirer Jewelers to pick out a special ring for me, then chicken cacciatore with egg pappardelle and roasted asparagus for dinner AND a victory for Michigan State over Nebraska, while Sunday we went to see a matinee of "Medea" - very intense - and had dinner at The Blue Room at the chef's table. Big thanks to Tinn for the kitty LJ gift, the card, and the three cool DVDs she sent me, and to JiM for the blue dragon LJ gift.

Circe is fading. She can still get around, but she's so tentative now, and she's really just fur over bones. She still enjoys eating, thank goodness. I'm sure that we have days left if not day. We'll see how today goes, and when we agree that it's time, we'll take her to the vet and be with her and tell her through it all how very, very much we love her. Shit, now I'm crying again. I hate this. I want her better, and I can't do shit for her.

*deep breath* OK, done with that now.

Thank you all again for the birthday wishes. Hugs and best wishes. :-)

I'm so sorry. It sucks and there's nothing I can do to change that, but I'll be thinking of you.

Thank you, Caroline dear. Knowing that you're thinking of me helps, that I'm not alone, that people care.

Happy belated Birthday. I'm so sorry about Circe (I missed your post about the cancer a few weeks ago.) My thoughts are with both of you. :::HUGS:::

Thank you for both the birthday wishes and the sympathy about my dear Circe. I miss posts all the time - I completely understand, my friend.

*hugs* to you too :-)

Thank you, cindy. No worries about missing my birthday - I miss most of people's birthdays these days.

She's such a sweet cat. We're taking care of her, but today has been a very bad day for her.

*hugs*

*hug* I'm sorry. Cry all you want, it does suck, when they're in pain and we can't help them or make it better. But Circe knows you love her.

*hug*

Thank you, my friend. Thank you so much. My dear kittenista. It's going to be so hard to let her go, but I'm going to have to, somehow.

She's in the icon, the kitten on the right as you look at the icon. Such a pretty kitty.

I have you in my thoughts.

*hug*
