EEkk I almost cannot post this or type anything. Getting tears in my eyes.
I cannot believe we made it this far.
I love you, Cinder.
Why I can hardly get through this day without crying is unreal. They are happy tears.
Hearing my vet say 2.5 years ago that Cinder is likely to not make if far beyond her 8th year was the hardest thing for us to swallow.
But we've been preparing since.
She has held out strong.
Then this March we feared we were going to lose her. She took a drastic turn for the worse.
U/S said sludgey gall bladder, slow/poorly working intestines, and possibly pancreatic issues.
We made some changes and she took a turn for the better.
She suffers some weight loss because of her dietary needs, but she is still here.
She is as happy as she has EVER been.
So here are her photos from her 10th Birthday!!
Just a few, cuz I took a BUTT LOAD!
