Oh no! Am I reading that right? What happened? I thought Pandora was planning to outlive us all . . .

Up until about a week ago, Pandora was normal. Then I noticed she started seeming more lethargic than normal, but I attributed it to the heat, but made a non-emergency appointment for her Monday. That day I realized I just hadn't seen her anywhere but the bathroom floor for the last day.

I took her to the vet and they gave her fluids for dehydration and started running tests, but her blood pressure and her body temperature were very low. They had me take her to another vet where she could get 24-hour critical care, but they were very guarded about her when I left around 9:30 last night. They had no idea what was wrong and they were just fighting to keep her alive long enough to run more tests. The vet called me about 2AM and said that was still the situation, and that they suspected she was bleeding internally and/or septic, and they still had no idea what the root cause was.

I drove in, had some quality head scratching time with her. I know she knew me, because she stopped crying as soon as they gave her to me. I had her in my lap when the vet put her to sleep about 3:15AM.

Maybe not knowing exactly what was killing her should be part of the mystery of Pandora.

I just can't believe she's gone.
