      I still can't believe this has happened. My beautiful and loving fur baby Cozmo has passed away. He was just 2 months shy of tuing 5yrs old. On Wed night I had to take him to the animal hospital because he just wasn't looking and acting his normal playful self.
      To make a long story short, he was diagnosed with an auto immune disease and after his second blood transfusion the vet said he must've formed a blood clot which made him going into cardiac arrest. He passed away on Saturday night. And the worst part about this is we were already planning his retu home on Sunday because he seemed to be coming out of this funk of his.
      My husband and I are broken hearted..we have no children and he was like our child bringing so much joy into our lives.
      I hugged him, kissed him and whispered to him how much we loved him..when they brought us his body to view.
      I'm so sad and mad and depressed. Life is so damn unfair..I just feel like my husband and I can't catch a break you know.
      Some of you may know our difficulties in having children..and now this?! I don't get it..
      Oh and to top it off..I'm fkn furloughed and not getting paid, the vet bill in itself was outrageous! But I would do it all over again, if it meant trying to save my Cozmo.

      Damn, I think I just vented some.. so I apologize ladies in advance for any tardiness on my projects. It's been the worst week ever.

            Erica, I am so sorry for your loss. I too feel our cats are our fur babies and I know how difficult it is to lose one – even more so when they are so young. My thoughts are with you and your husband

                HUGS, Erica. Life is throwing some crappy things your way. I am sorry about your baby. I had a very hard time when both of my old cats passed, so I understand that heartbreak- it's real, whether it's a fur baby or not.

                  Oh my goodness Erica! I'm so sorry honey! I understand how broken hearted you must be right now.

                  On the furlough front…I'm in the same boat. Except I'm an exempted employee which means I'm required to go to work every day and not get paid. 'MURICA!

                  Hang in there sweetie.

The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

                      And Adriana..I am considered one of those lucky essential employees..that gets to work for free as well. Maybe I should buy a lotto ticket..with my luck I'll probably trip on my way to get the ticket and fall face first in a pile of doggy do-do. :O

                        Wow Erica that is a sad story. I'm so sorry this has happened to you. It is so hard to lose a pet anytime but especially in such an unexpected and sudden way. Sending you a hug. I hope things improve on the shutdown front. It is so frustrating the way our govement goes in circles and gets nowhere. Take care.

                                  Oh Erica – I have tears in my eyes. I don't know what I would do without my fur baby. My heart is breaking for you. I can only tell you that I am thinking of you and sending you hugs.
                                  WOW – if I am this upset, I can only imagine. I really do not have anything productive of uplifting to say, just know someone else is out here sharing in your grief for (with) you!
