Shirley (formerly Mrs. P) left us this morning, though it was expected. Yesterday morning she showed her first signs of a respiratory flare-up (weight was fine and no symptoms) and it was terminal. We started medication right away but by that evening she was already growing cold. I gave her snuggles and pets until she wanted to be put back and by the next morning she had left us. Rest well, girl!
