China 1994-2007

My poor little cat never recovered from her pancreatitis. She died at the vet’s last night, around 11:00pm. They were just about to perform exploratory surgery to try to figure out why she wasn’t recovering, but she didn’t last the night.
The vet’s going to do an autopsy to figure out where it all went wrong. China recovered for a day, relapsed, then held stable for the rest of the week.
We’re trying to figure out if we want to get another cat right away, or to wait for a couple of months. Athena’s pretty much caught on that China’s gone for good.
