Very Sad News

 For those who have been following Tinsel's story, today was a very, very hard day as I made the decision to help Tinsel cross the Rainbow Bridge. I've known since February that this day was coming, but that knowledge did not make the decision -- or the process -- any easier.

If you watched last week's video, you know that Tinsel had been doing remarkably well. But in the past few days she stopped eating and her mouth began showing signs of infection. A trip to the vet confirmed that the tumor had grown much more, shifting her jaw and impeding her ability to eat.

So I knew we were at the point where I had to let our dear, sweet girl go. I'll write more later, but in the meantime, hug your furry companions a little tighter today in honor of our sweet Tinsel, and let them have a few extra kitty treats for good measure. Although I know I made the right decision, my heart is broken. 

 With love for Tinsel,

And my heart is broken right along with yours...... With a lump in my throat and tears falling from my eyes, please know that I'm terribly sorry it was sweet, precious Tinsel's time to go. Every day I've been hoping she would continue to do well and be a part of your lives for a long time yet. Hugs and love to you, my friend. I know it isn't easy letting our fur babies go. I'll be praying for you. :(

Thank you so much, Kimberly Marie, for your sweet, kind words. I'm so thankful for all the time we shared with Tinsel. Little reminders of her are everywhere. Our house feels very different without her. :(

Thank you so much for sharing Tinsel's story with us and keeping us in your prayers. The friends we meet along life's journey are indeed very special. <3

Janet, I'm so sorry this day has come so soon. My heart hurts for you. I wish I could give you a hug but please know I'm thinking of you and Tinsel (and even Lily) and sending healing thoughts.
Please take care, Wendy
