I got this email today from PhantomCat:
A few hours ago, Kiriko left us. She was diagnosed with aggressive lymphoma at the end of August, but has been feeling well with the aid of medication until now. Last week, she had two vet visits for digestive problems, and I realised her time feeling healthy and happy and very much herself was coming to an end.
With the help of my housemate Claire, who is a veterinary anaesthetist, we let her go peacefully and surrounded by love, here at home. It was an hono(u)r to be with her, and a final gift, after nearly 13 years of love and joy and laughter.
My heart is so grateful and so broken right now. I know the wonderful Cheezpeeps will understand this better than anyone else ever could.
Gorgeous Kiri-Chan has been on Cheezland many times. https://cheezpeeps.org/tag/phantomcat/
Going to miss the wonderful moments of finding new pics of her adorable self in my emeow. Alla beems coming your way, PhantomCat, and we have a huge sad with you.
