What do you do when sad news is staring at you in the face? You don't want to hear it, but you have to. All I see right now are two big beautiful green eyes looking up at me with a very sad expression.
This afternoon we found out Leo our cat, has heart disease. We won't know more details until Monday when an Eckocardiogram will be performed on him. He was healthy one day, and the next, I noticed him having trouble breathing. And it simply went from bad to worse. The Vet removed as much fluid from around his lungs as she possibly could, which should remove the difficult efforts of trying so hard to breathe.
She also shaved a portion on both sides of his body to make the procedure easier. I, however, have never seen Leo without his brown tabby hair. This is all a first for me; I have never had my own pet before Leo. We had dogs when I was a kid, but my very own pet - no, not until Leo Meister.
So far, all we know is that he now has heart disease. The test on Monday will produce alot more medical information, and the more information, the more we will know for our decision making process.
Right now, I know that I am broken hearted because I am slowly losing my Leo.
