I just want to thank you guys for your messages and replies about Ellie. I’ve had an extraordinarily hard time with losing her and I feel quite a lot better today. I have a great support system, including those of you on tumblr.
we took ellie to the vet and she barely had any blood pressure and was totally dehydrated so they put her on an IV
they thought she had a foreign body in her stomach causing her to have GI problems and sent her in for emergency surgery after she started throwing up blood
instead, they found stomach cancer with a tumor that ruptured
we had to put her to sleep during the surgery.
we made it maybe halfway home before they called to tell us
I just can’t stop crying. that cat was my baby. I was crying so hard on the way home that I had an asthma attack, which I haven’t had in years… and now I just can’t stop.
she slept in my bed every night and she took care of me as much as I took care of her. I have looked at her face almost every day for half of my life. I don’t care how much any of that vet stuff is going to cost me, I just wish it had made a difference.
we’re going to get her ashes in a few days and get an engraved cat urn for her. I’m going to miss her so much.
my Ellie has been kind of sickly lately (but acting completely normal, so we figured she ate something bad) and today she’s lethargic and we’re taking her to the ER vet
she’s my little baby (even though we worked out today that she’s like 11 years old). I’ve had her since she was 6 months and I’m the only human she really likes.
I’m not really sure what’s wrong with her, but we’re taking her to the vet right now and I’m trying not to cry. I’m sure she’s just got some tummy issues going on and that she’ll be fine, though.
simblr, I have an important question for you:
do you microwave or toast your bagels?
I’ve never heard of anyone microwaving bagels until he did it tonight like wtf is that
I’m still pretty excited about Valentines Day
I almost forgot that it’s tomorrow!
I’ve had at least 1 day of classes cancelled every week since this semester began
I don’t have school tomorrow because it’s going to snow again
whereas usually in RI they don’t cancel school very often… we’ve just gotten a shit ton of snow this year
