Sad News on the Farm

Sad news from the farm this week.  Our farm cat Sable had to be put to sleep last Tuesday.  I found her collapsed in our kitchen and a trip to the vet told us that, although she was essentially healthy in every other respect, a blood clot had formed and had become lodged in her spine causing her to be unable to move her legs.  She was 16 years old and so we are happy she had a good long life but she'll be missed and we are sad that it had to be so healthy apart from that.  It was a frustrating decision to make.

R.I.P Sable (always ready to make us laugh!)


  1. Sad news but 16 years is a long time. Any of her descendants wandering around?

  2. Always sad to have a member of the family leave you but at least she had a long and happy life!!

  3. We lost our 13 year old cat just a few months ago to age related problems as well. I feel for you in the loss of your family companion.

  4. So sorry for your loss! =(

    That's so sad.
