Many of you know our cat, Jolie. Or rather, you've heard that we have a cat named Jolie (lovingly referred to as "the fat one".) Jolie doesn't come out much unless it is to eat, but she is a sweet, sweet kitty none the less.

Last Saturday she was supposed to go in for her annual exam and shots. But since we've been having a lot of problems with her urinating (everywhere), we decided to have some tests run. This evening the vet called with the results of her lab work... As it turns out, she is severely diabetic (along with a possible neurological issue). This leaves us with a few options, but the one we are choosing to go with is to have her put to sleep. We don't want her to suffer.

Of course my heart is breaking. I'm very sad by this as I've had her for eight years... she's a sweet, loving kitty - even if you haven't ever met her. We will discuss timing with the vet tomorrow. Please keep us in your thoughts as losing a pet is never easy. We appreciate it...

Awww ... stinko. That's a bummer. But, for what it's worth, I think you're making the right decision and I'm sure Jolie will be happy in kitty heaven with all of my past pets. Maybe they can hook up and talk about what great owners we were.
