July 21, 2011 - Rest in Peace Chloe

 Today was a sad day at our house...  Chloe, our 6 year old cat, passed away this morning.  Sam and I found her in her favorite room of the house, the guest bedroom.  Brad rushed home from work and we took her up to the vet to find out the cause of her death. 
Chloe had been acting healthy and completely normal.  The vet did some investigating, and discovered that Chloe's heart was slightly enlarged.  She felt Chloe had a heart attack.  The vet told us it is fairly common for a middle aged cat to suffer a heart attack.  Unfortunately, there was nothing we could have done to stop it.

 I got Chloe in May of 2005 while I was living at home with my parents.  My dad told me not to come home with a cat, but even he could not resist the kitten cuteness. :)

 Chloe moved with me from my parent's house, to our studio apartment, to the one bedroom apartment, to the two bedroom apartment, and finally to our current house. 

 She put up with the addition of the dogs and actually ended up liking the dogs quite a bit.  She was known to groom and cuddle with Luna.
 Chloe put up with the addition of Sam.  She loved checking out all of his toys and new cat beds (AKA the changing table, crib or pack n play).
Chloe recently even enjoyed playing with Sam.  She has always liked kids and came out to visit the nephews when they were over too. 
Chloe was a great cat and had too short of a life.
We will miss you, Chloe!

  1. That cat endured so much with us (living in multiple tiny apartments, living with extra cats, dogs, etc.) and she always did well with it all. We'll miss her.
