Last night between 8:20 p.m. and 9:20 p.m. Buttercup passed away.
She’d been sick for a while, and even though we gave her medicine and so on, she just couldn’t get healthy. She curled inside her favorite yogurt cup and just stopped breathing.
Her death was less of a shock to me than it was with Shiro’s. In a way I kinda knew that Buttercup’s chances weren’t very good when she lost a third of her weight very fast and couldn’t gain it back after a month. Her haggard appearance reminded me of Shiro’s last days.
Hero Material and I buried Buttercup under a willow tree next to the one Shiro’s resting under.
Good bye, Buttercup.
