Herman's Hideaway. A few of you may wonder why I didn't rush Emma off to the emergency vet when I found her in the litter box, too weak to get out. The nearest emergency vet is a 45 minute drive from here. I did consider it, but the stress of moving her would have probably meant that she would have run off to the Rainbow Bridge on the way. Even if she had survived the trip, there would have been nothing that they could have done for her. She exhibited all the symptoms of Feline Leukemia that Herman did, but they were much worse. I thought it best to just let her go here at home in her room where she felt most comfortable. I will miss her terribly and I think that Herman will miss her, too. I let Herman see her and smell her and touch her before I buried her, but I don't know if he understands why she didn't respond to him. I hope so.
Goodbye, Emma, my sweet little one.
It's all too soon that you are gone.
You fly away free,
But for Herman and me
It's a sad time here all alone.
