I told Meredith that while this is a fight none of us will win, our best
metric for 'success' with our heart kitties is in their quality of life. By
that standard, Meredith and Monkey are shining stars.
And for that reason, I believe Monkey's Miracle continues, in the comfort
her story gives to every person on this list now and those who will come
after. To those people, posting in the middle of the night having just
found this list during a frantic internet search after learning their
beloved companion has this awful disease, stories like Monkey's provide what
is needed most during these dark moments -- hope. Hope that they are not
likely to find among veterinary medicine or all too often, family and
friends, no matter how well-intentioned. Hope that all is not lost, hope
that it is possible to provide a beloved friend with treatment and comfort,
hope that there will be more time to love and be loved. Hope that it is
possible, against all odds, to make a real difference.
This is Monkey's real miracle.
Monkey's work on this plane of existence is done now, and she's at the
Bridge where she was greeted as a hero by all the list kitties who went
there before her. She's running and playing in perfect health and happiness
with her new friends, my Baby Boy among them. Bless you, little Monkey.

Dear Meredith & Angel Monkey I ve said this before and I ll say again. It was you and Monkey, that help take some of this awful fear away that comes w/findingMessage 1 of 11 , Nov 1, 2006View SourceDear Meredith & Angel Monkey
I've said this before and I'll say again.
It was you and Monkey, that help take some of this awful fear away that
out your pet has CHF.
It was you that helped me understand about clots, which scared me the most.
I thought it
was the end if a clot was released. But with your edu. I know not to make a
wrong or sudden
choice to let Baby go just because some uneducated ER VET says so.
We've learned a lot from Monkey. We've learned that there is a great deal
