This is an email that has been hard to write. Bugg crossed over the Rainbow Bridge on December 22.
The shelter called Barbara could we take a 10 month old kitten, well Bugg was a 10 year old cat that looks and acted like a kitten. That was 5 years ago. Her top weight was 6 pounds and she ruled this house with an iron paw and that was the tinest paw you ever saw. Little Bug at 18+ pounds was afraid of her. He would peek around a corner to see if she was there. My lap and chair was hers and she would not let anyone else up to even sit on the arm of the chair. Relented to let them get on the back of the chair. She would paw you to pet her and then bite you (not hard) when you didn't do it right. She put up a great fight through her asthma, hyperthyroid and inflammatory bowel disease. She had an inhaler for her asthma and she would get in my lap to have her treatments. She gave it her all. Now she can be that 10 month old kitten.
Spriggy died at home this morning. She was a sweet RTF kitty from County that would not get out of her carrier to be returned on Sprig Street in Sacramento. That's why I took her home.
This month I took her to ASN Auburn for a dental. It was either that or euthanize her. She had stomatitis and her mouth became a mess
despite daily prednisolone. Her labs were perfect before and after the dental. I think her heart gave out. I am so sad right now. Sprig was my quirky buddy. I love her and will really miss her.
Rest In Peace, Spriggy. I love you.
