Dear Kounty Kitties Friends,
Those of you that have taken a look at our website have become familiar with Scooter, our story teller. Scooter had become increasingly weak, barely eating or drinking. The vet had told us that his kidneys weren’t working as they should. This past week he had become very weak, unsteady on his feet and lethargic. After a check-up at the vet, he confirmed that his kidneys were starting to fail, which let to his feeling increasingly ill.
After doing some research and discussing matters with the vet, my husband Derek made the extremely difficult decision to let his best friend of 19 years go to a more peaceful place, free of pains and aches. Yesterday evening I accompanied Derek to the vet.
It was very sad, but very peaceful. Dr. Jim Vega at Hunters Creek Animal Hospital treated us with empathy and support. Even tough this was a very painful situation, his caring words helped us do the right thing.
Please give your furry loved ones an extra smooch in Scooter's name.

Good morning - Believe me Sonia I know the pain you are suffering. I finally had to give up my Prissy and it was not an easy thing to do but was the best for her.
I enjoyed Scooter's story and will be thinking of him and you and Derek. Please let me know if I can do anything at all to help out.
Much love to you and Derek.
I am sorry for Derek and you for your lost. I can't imagine how sad you were to let him go after these 19 years.
