The carriage held but just ourselves and immortality ...

corpsefairy, starchy, and I learned this afternoon that our foster kitten Wakko, who had been in the SPCA vet's office for over a week because of mysterious chronic pain, had been put to sleep over the weekend, unbeknownst to us. I'm sad and also angry -- even though we were still technically just the foster parents, we had grown very attached to her and were planning to adopt her. We didn't even get a chance to say goodbye, much less take her elsewhere for a second opinion on her "neurological condition." I know the SPCA is doing the best it can with limited resources, but it still sucks that they didn't call us before euthanizing her or even keep us updated on what tests they were running on her before that. Poor thing. At least she generally had a happy, if brief, life.
