R.I.P Sphynx - March 8, 2010
I had to take Sphynx and have her put to sleep on Monday. She had a really bad day on Sunday, so Melissa didn't want her to suffer anymore. She felt better Monday, but we knew that it can get better before it gets worse. When I took her in, the vet noticed how Jaundice(sp?) she was. The poor thing was getting skinnier and turning yellow. She still wanted to eat, but we didn't want to wait until she quit. The vet asked if she was still eating. I guess she wanted to see how far gone she was. Melissa couldn't go with me to the vet because she couldn't handle seeing the love of her life like that. I held her as she fell asleep.

Her remains came home today in an urn. We want to find a Sphynx or something Egyptian to use as an urn, but for now, she has the plastic box the crematory used.

Ellen, sad mama

I'm so sorry. It's always hard to let them go.

I am so sorry for your loss.... It's so hard to go through, know that you made the right choices -- often what is right for them is so hard for us...
