Lucky came to us on Sept 12 2001 at about 5 weeks old. One of my coworkers came to work that morning, came in and got the deposit ready for the bank and left to go to the bank. Problem was when she went to her car it was MEOWING. She discovered there was a small kitten under her hood. It had to have gotten in there at her apartment, over 10 miles away and much of that on high speed highways. How the kitten didn't get hurt is anyones guess. One of the guys got the little thing out. We didn't want to take it to the shelter. It was too little to be away from mom and would have been put down. I called Tom and ask if we could take in ANOTHER cat. Being the sucker, I mean softie that he is he said sure. So I took the kitten to the vet for a checkup. Except for bing covered in engine grease she was healthy and VERY lucky. So we named her Lucky. She's been a healthy happy kitty ever since.

 

Yesterday she went in with several of our other kitties for checkups. Her temp and heart rate was fine. But then something happened. The vet feels it was a clot that went to her lung and then she had a heart attack. They couldn't save her. It was most likely a genetic defect that never showed up and would have happened anyway. At least this way the vet saw it and we know what happened as to coming home and finding her dead with no idea what happened. But we're still shocked that she's gone at just 5 and a half.

 

So Lucky sweetie, find Zeus and Annie and play nice. We love you and miss you.

Trish, I am so sorry for your loss. This has got to be so difficult for you after losing Zeus last month. My thoughts are with you and Tom.
