She's ill and not long for this world. It's Mom's second cat which had to be put down. Both were/are suffering from kidney failure. I'm not sure what's causing me the most grief, Mom's losing the last vestige of her prenursing home life, or how much Lily has suffered. She was a sweet thing who loved playing fetch with a silk flower Mom would toss. Sad! Sleep well little tortie girl

So sad. I had an identical cat named lily, hence my name here. I feel your pain. Sweet cat.

Very sorry. That kidney failure kills so many kitty cats. All 3 of mine died from it. It is a very sad situation.

Sorry to see and hear this. She's a pretty cat. That happened to my mom's cat too when they both came to live with me. In her case, I'm sure that cat never went to the vet. It was sad but I have to say that I was glad that the cat passed before my mom. She would have really worried about him.

RIP Lily.

We are still suffering the recent loss of our dear kitty, so believe me, I know how deeply saddened you are. Pets are with us through "thick and thin," and they leave us before we are willing to let go.

This must be so hard. Putting down you mother's cat as your mother's health declines. Hugs, rob.

That's very sad, and very difficult. I had to do the same with my mother's cats and one of mine. Precious kitty, sleep well and know you were loved. So sorry, Rob.

Thank you everyone for your kind words. I appreciate them all. I knew I could "vent" over here. I was on my way into a seminar that I organize and I needed to be clear headed. I couldn't stop crying. Y'all made it better.
