Our sweet Olivia passed away unexpectedly last night. We found her lifeless on the floor this morning, next to Wendi’s chair. She was already cold.

Olivia slept most of the day yesterday but seemed okay. It’s common for cats to sleep a lot. She was up and down, ate and drank and used the litter box, and seemed quite contented. I recall her purring on the top of my chair last night.

Wendi heard her growling and hissing at one point in the night, but soon she was quiet, so she thought everything was okay.

We’ve had two cats put down before, but Olivia was the only one to die at home. We only had her for a short time, less than five months, but we gave her lots of love, and she had a good life while she was with us.
