Oh no -- I am so sorry to hear that news.
I am so glad you were able to give her a wonderful home ever since you brought her home from the rescue.

oh Christine so sorry about Louise darn we have even fallen in love with all of those animals of yours and talk about them like we know them. You have made them all come to life for us. What a lucky bunch of "family" you have shared with all of us, I am sure the others in the family(human and the almost human kind) miss her just as much as you do.So so sorry.

Please know you're being thought of as you grieve. Pets are family members so, their loss is keenly felt and you made yours have such personality....all your readers will miss her too. I'm very sorry too.
