We knew when we brought her in that she was very old and it turned out very sick as well. We didn't have her for long before she crossed the rainbow bridge, but our son took such good care of her. She lived in his room where he fed her and slept with her every night. He adored this cat. He cared for her literally until the last minutes of her life. Even though we didn't get much time with her, we were so glad that she got to experience love and compassion from human beings at least for the last part of her life. Like all of our other animals, we spoiled her rotten!
