SN - Dean


Mokey passed over the rainbow bridge yesterday...

I could barely stomach how weak and sick she was, I took her to the vet 3 times over the past 3 weeks and kept her on medications all the way through to the end... just nothing seemed to work. They couldn't come up with a direct diagnosis, but after her last visit and some x-rays we saw that all of her intestines were clumped into a mass in one region. Her vet believed it could mean she had a form of cancer in that region, and even if we knew directly there was just nothing else we could have done to fix the problem. At least it gave me peace of mind knowing that I did everything I could to see if I could help her.

My mother believes that she may have had this problem since she was a kit... she was so tiny and petite and that often times animals who never grow to be full size aren't completely healthy. Just like Smith, she was only 4 years old when she passed on... but they were best friends when they were both alive and together so now I'm sure they're romping around together again, that thought comforts me a little....
