My Sweet Precious Grrreta



















I am deeply saddened to tell you my sweet, precious Grrreta has passed away from complications of feline diabetes. She had lost weight, her body had been reacting badly to insulin injections, and yesterday she suffered a seizure that took her life.

I will always cherish the sweet, wonderful memories of the eight years she was part of our family. She filled every moment with joy and love, and was loved more than I ever imagined possible. I miss her more than words can express.

Mom Michelle

Oh no! We just heard the sad news. Grrreta was such a special friend. We know how difficult managing diabetes can be. This happened to our Maxfield...he didn't adjust well to the insulin and he too had a seizure that took his life. It's so difficult. We are surrounding you with lots of purrs.

Grrreta had such a good life with you.

Soft and comforting purrs,

Cory & family

I am so sorry to hear the sad news. But what a lucky lady-cat she was to have you as her mom. My vet once told me that over 85% of diabetic cats are put to sleep because of expense and 'inconvenience'.

I'm sure she had a wonderful life with you. You are in my prayers in the coming days.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Hello brofurs and sisfur of Greta, Thanks for visiting me ;-) Somehow, I had lost track of just how MANY of you there are now--you must greatly outnumber the Humans? Right now me and my Human have a 1:1 ratio. That seems fair, I guess. Still, it might be fun to have allies. It must make it easier to get your way. XOXOXOXO

Forever Foster said...
