Naikai's lymph nodes in her throat are so swollen that she's having trouble breathing. It looks like one in her thigh burst because her foot is swollen. She didn't look like she'd make it through the weekend, so mom decided to bring her in to the vet's.
Naikai is the first pet I've had that I've gotten to actually say goodbye to. And it sucks. But she's miserable right now, so this is what's best for her. Mom's a wreck. Kelly went with her to the vet's while I watch the nephews.
She'll be creamated and burried out on the island on the pond with the other pet who are pining for the fjords.
Be well, Naikai, and know you are loved.
