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,
