Sapphire passed away at noon today. She'd been a little off lately but we had no idea that she was suffering from liver cancer. Fortunately, I took her to the vet on Wednesday and tests revealed it.
I say 'fortunately' because it means we didn't make her suffer. She wasn't quite herself but she wasn't in agony. We were able to spare her that.
She was beautiful and smart and tough and had the loudest purr I've ever heard and the loudest snore to go along with it.
And now she's gone. And the condo doesn't quite feel like a home tonight.
