Good-bye Mariah.

My poor little Bengal kitten has left the earth. After many tests, examinations, discussions and hours and hours of observation, we had to put Mariah to sleep.

Her symptoms were horrific--I don't think I can list them here. I might be able to some day but not right now. She had almost all the symptoms of FIP. She probably had a predisposition for FIP to mutate into a deadly form.

She wanted to live. We could tell. But it kept knocking her down, over and over again. Now she is at rest.

I feel like she is resting in my heart. Its hard to explain but this kitty was my little love. I think she changed me.

I can't write much more now. I am exhausted
But allow me to thank everyone for loving Mariah.

Ohhh goodness!!! I am sending you the biggest hugs. Losing a pet is like losing a part of the family, a part of yourself. If you need anything at all or just need to talk or vent, please, don't hesitate to call or write or anything. I'm sooo sorry....

big hugs!!!
