She was in bad shape. I talked to her, and drove slowly home. I always ask for a donation, and get a release signed. Bless their hearts, they got some money together for me: a 20, a five, and three ones. You know this took some effort and thought.
I had no idea what was going on with this lady: she was lying still, no spasms, no wheezing, no sign of diarrhea or vomiting, not thin, no sign of injury...not dehydrated. I knew she was beyond eating...eyes normal, not dilated. I thought that she might have been poisoned. Did not want to take her to emergency..frankly thought it would probably not do any good and just cause trauma. I'd take her to local vet in the morning. No crying, nothing. I did put her on a heating pad, as her temp was a very scary 95.6. should have been arouond 100, Her temp did return to normal in about and hour. By this time it was late, and I said a prayer and went to bed. In the morning she was gone. Bless her soul. My vet, when I described her condition said that yes, it may have been poison. Bless her: at least she died having been loved and cared for a bit. We gave her a service and burial. We love you, little one.
