Farewell to BlackiePumpkin's Momma here: Yesterday we made the sad decision that it was time to help Blackie on her way to The Rainbow Bridge. She had stopped eating completely and had shrunk down from 11 pounds to only 6.6 pounds. She was literally just skin and bones. We though it was just her kidneys that were failing but on her final trip to the vet, Dr. Lau felt a hard lump in her stomach and he said it was cancer and he thought that it had even spread to her liver. It seems like we've had Blackie forever. The patio seems empty without Blackie holding court from the top of her cage. She lived a very long life with us. We're not sure exactly how old Blackie was since she was already an adult when she was found, but we're pretty sure she was at least 20. She's now pain free at The Bridge, eating all the stinky goodness that she wants and munching on the grass that she loved. She will be missed. Aloha, sweet Blackie.
