it has not been easy to be one of my pets these past few months. In the fall, we had to put our Shih Tzu Mo to sleep. Next our dog Daisy was diagnosed with a heart condition, which we monitor daily. And today, our cat Holly passed away. As recently as the beginning of the year, she had been the picture of feline health. The past two weeks were a different story however. She was critically ill and after doing some tests, the vet thought that she most likely had cancer of her spleen. The only consolation is that she died while being petted.
