We'll hope along with you that you buck the trend and there is no third thing. Losing pets is hard, but it sounds like each got to live a full life, at least.

Bats

I'm sure you gave them a wonderful home, and the love and care that they deserved. I'm sure, too, that Sherpa had had a good innings, and appreciated your love and care for her.

Yes, it's a sad thing. I've lost several before. Birds, and two cats. None of which lived very long. Still not sure which was worse, having a loved cat run over at age 4, or having to put down a possibly brain-damaged cat at age 1.
I'm just glad our third cat is healthy at 7, and hoping she lives a long life. We pretty much keep her inside, though she's allowed out on the patio.


Don't mean to ramble, I'll shut up now.
