May 27, 2004
golf ball sized cyst appeared at the base of Couloir's tail near
the beginning of 2004. She then started loosing
weight and started picking up more alignments. I had just
brought her to the Vet on Monday the 24th. He gave her a steroid
shot that knocked her out. When she came home she stayed under a
tree in the garden until nightfall. She slept most all of the
next day then suffered a seizure
that Tuesday night. She was then spaced out all day Wednesday.
I made the decision Thursday
morning, when it appeared Couloir was going in and out of consciousness,
to go to the Vet to have her put to sleep. I made an appointment
She went on her own timetable
with a few last gasps, she died at home at 9:45 a.m.
It was good it was over.
She was suffering the last few weeks.
found a site on the Internet on how to bury a cat and found a good place in the garden.
Our friend Ray came down from work and helped dig a three foot
I got my power tools out and made a plywood casket
using her exact measurements.
I wrapped Couloir in her favorite
blanket with a few of her toys and tags.
I also laid a few sprigs of
Lavender with her.
Ray & I gave the last blessings and
I gathered the most
from each of our roses bushes
and laid them across her casket.
Rest in Peace

Thank you for all your
I always knew my dad
