Yesterday my beautiful and beloved cat Merlot passed away. Taken from the land of the living in a cruel and unfair blink of an eye. One moment she was there and the next her uniqueness had gone. All indications point to a massive stroke. From birth Merlot had never been the healthiest of animals and there had been numerous visits to the vet to get anemia and other issues under control. Given that she was on a maintenance dose of steroids, had put weight on and appeared generally settled and healthy all had been looking good for Merlot. But once again the universe decided to deal out a horrific hand.
Goodbye Merly. You were and are loved so so much.
