We lost Princess Cricket, one of our fourteen year old cats, early this morning. She'd been ill for a long time, but she'd actually looked better yesterday after her visit to the vet. He even thought she would be all right. But I woke up at 4:30am and for some reason checked on her. She was having trouble breathing. I woke Russ up who decided to take her into the bathroom, where the other cats wouldn't bother her -- and she died there just a couple minutes later.
