R.I.P Stormy (September 10, 2013)

One month ago we lost our beloved Stormy. This happened very sudden and took us quite by surprise. She had suddenly developed breathing issues. She was diagnosed with asthma, but failed to respond to any treatment. And after spending time in an incubator at the emergency vet, they were unable to wean her off of the oxygen. They also noticed that she was unable to regulate her body temperature. It was at this time that we made the decision that all pet owners hate to make, but know its for the best.

An Unexpected Trip to the Vet


Last night we noticed Stormy having difficulty walking. Our thoughts immediately went to Zoey when she did this over Labor Weekend in 2009 and ended at the emergency vet clinic for the entire weekend. If Stormy is experiencing the same thing, it means her kidneys are beginning to fail which is common in cats as they age.

Originally the plan was to take her into the veterinarian on Saturday, but at 2:00 this morning I couldn't sleep, got up and discovered she was struggling ever more with her hindquarters. So, we will be taking her in this morning. Updates as they become available.


In late 1998, I wanted to help the over crowded cat rescue organizations by fostering a cat. What started as a temporary arrangement with Stormy soon became permanent when I was unable to contact that organization to return her prior to an upcoming vacation. By then, we had become thoroughly attached to Stormy and were happy to welcome her to our house. Stormy was the name given to her by the cat organization and to this day it still fits her wild personality. DOB: 1997. Weight: ~8 lbs. Nicknames: Baby, Evil.
