Goodbye Fur Friend
Had to say goodbye last week to 17 year old Taté, due to kidney failure. We do not plan on getting any more pets after ours are gone. We have already gone through a dog being paralyzed from the hips down for a year, another cat who need daily subcutaneous fluid injections due to kidney failure, then Taté who needed daily thyroid pills suddenly succumbed to kidney failure. We still have a third (now solo) cat, also with kidney disease, who gets fluid injections twice a day. And a cockatiel that my mother gave me. They live 20 years, he's about 17 years old, too.
