Mondays with Myrtle: #teammyrtle
We have some sad news to share today. Surprisingly and sadly, we have said farewell to Myrtle.
First and foremost, to reiterate from our blog posts, we want to acknowledge what a special kitty Myrtle was. And, we want to thank everyone who was involved with her arrival to Animal Friends and providing her with specialized care. We also want to thank you, the readers, for following along with Myrtle’s story and cheering her on.
Most of all, we send a special thank you to Myrtle’s foster mom who lovingly provided her with all of her needs, creating a true oasis for a precious kitty who surely deserved it. Katie opened her heart and her home to Myrtle and surely made Myrtle’s last months as wonderful as they could be.
Myrtle’s health took an unexpected turn. Her foster mom alerted Animal Friends’ medical staff that she was no longer able to stand and arrangements were made for her to immediately go to the emergency veterinarian for care. Tests were conducted and the veterinarian suspected cancer or an infection that had spread throughout Myrtle’s body. With heavy hearts, the decision was made to let Myrtle go.
Our furry loved ones live in the moment and Myrtle was provided with precious moments while under Animal Friends’ care. While Myrtle is no longer with us in body, we can see a bit of her spirit shine through in each animal we care for. We ask that you love your pets just a little more today in honor of a very brave, very special kitty.
