Prowler T. Cat

January 2001 to January 18, 2011

Unfortunately, she had to be put to sleep from a back injury that had plagued her since September, 2009. Though it looked like it was healing and she was getting much better (back to using her litter box and even playing with the laser pointer again), she took a turn for the worse on about January 14, 2011 when she lost control of her bladder function totally; she leaked everywhere she went. She was in the process of losing the strength in her back legs and tail, as had happened before. The first time, however, she didn't lose all control of her bladder. The vet even warned me that it could happen. After speaking with the vet at Animal Humane, I decided the best thing to do was to not let her go through that again and to have her put down. Yes it was the first time I'd had to do that and it was so difficult. I still miss her.

Prowler was was what I called my "Millennium" kitty, since I suspect she was born about the first of January, 2001. I found Prowler outside in April, 2001, took her to the vet and got all her shots. One of the best cats I'd ever had. She'd use the cat box even though I sometimes ignored it for a time. She'd usually eat only dry cat food. She even came to her name, and "Kitty kitty kitty" wasn't necessary.

When someone came to the door, she was right there to greet them. Anyway, that was Prowler. I wish she were still with me.

The first two photos were taken in 2004.

This photo and the one below were taken at my Brentwood Gardens apartment in Albuquerque, NM.

The day after this picture was taken, January 17, 2011, I took Prowler to the vet for the very last time. One of her favorite foods was peanut butter and I couldn't even interest her in this. I do have another cat that looks very similar to her now named Amber. She's a cutie, too...but of course, totally different personality.
