July 30 2000 —– Sept. 30 2000


My boyfriend and I adopted a female kitten from the

Delaware County SPCA in Pennsylvania during July in order to give

our other male kitten a companion. With in one week of owning Kyra

she started sneezing and within a few days was so congested that she

could not eat. Since Kyra could not smell her food she could not eat it,

therefore she slowly weakened until she could no longer hold herself up,

or even open her eyes. My boyfriend and I tried desperately to force feed her

but Kyra would only spit her food out because it was so hard for

her to swallow. She died unfortunately too young. She was such

a loving and affectionate kitty who always wanted love.

It was very upsetting to us both financially and

emotionally to watch this cat die.
