Sophie was a British Blue
Shorthair, she was born in 1993 and was Harry’s half sister. She was a
very sweet little cat.
In 1999 she was diagnosed as suffering from Lymphocytic
Gastritis, this is an auto-immune disease where her immune system
was attacking her stomach. She had been treated with steroids and was
doing very well until in April 2003 when we noticed she had started loosing
weight again and had developed jaundice.
She was then diagnosed as suffering from Lymphocytic Cholangitis. This
is a similar disease but her liver was now also being attacked. She was
treated with steroids and antibiotics but was unable to fight this additional
disease and was put to sleep on the 14th July 2003.
We are all missing her terribly.
