Couloir Rusche

May 27, 2004

A 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 for 10:30.

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.

I 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 deep hole.

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 beautiful roses
 from each of our roses bushes

and laid them across her casket.


Rest in Peace
