Cancer. I had her euthanized around noon.

She came from the exgf's parents back yard from the same mother as Hagia, Zeus and Groucho. Like them, she had very particular views on life and who she would associate with. Unlike every other feral I have dealt with, she became habituated but never tame. Instead she had her sleeping place in the hall closet, and a blind in my office where she could stare at me suspiciously from cover. I was allowed to feed her.

One apology can be found here.

Another apology can be found here.
