R.I.P. – Ali ‘the cat’ Sims November 25, 2008 at 5:45 pm

Ali had to go to sleep yesterday and not wake up.  She’s been a part of my family since I met D’Anna.  Ali was about two when she was given to D’Anna before we met.  So she was around 15 or 16 years old.  She’s always been a feisty cat and she’s had a reputation as ‘difficult to deal with’ from more than one vet.

The one and only Ali.

She developed a tumor on her neck about a year and half ago.  It grew until it was about baseball size.  We had to bandage it and put a sock over her head to keep her from scratching the tumor and making it bleed.  She still had lot’s of spunk up until about 3 or 4 months ago and she started loosing lots of weight and become less and less feisty, becoming lethargic over the last week.  She’s had a few more tumors come up and started to walk with a noticeable limp.  She was having trouble eating because of the tumor not from lack of trying though.

Jacob loved her very much and we had “the talk” with him Sudnay night about Ali dying.  It was not the easiest conversation but he seemed to understand.  He loved on her some yesterday morning and held her a little before she was put to sleep..

Ali being loved by Jacob.... Jacob Loved Ali!

We will miss you Ali!
