Hubbie and I are grieving the loss of Ella, the precious cat whose care we assumed after our daughter-in-law developed a life-threatening allergy to cats. She and this son had had Ella from the time she was a few months old, so the reaction was a shock. 

Ella was ten, and we knew she would end her little life with us - and break our hearts - but we didn't know we'd only have two years to enjoy her. We love cats, and our son and his wife needed us. Ella needed us. And we had already fallen in love with her sweet yet spicy, dark tortoiseshell temperament. 

A year ago she developed several health problems, evidence her little body was giving out. She passed away in a pet ER at 11:45 p.m. Tuesday, April 7 in respiratory and cardiac distress. Now we're the ones experiencing distress.
