Goodbye to Our Kitty
It seems like a lot of blogging friends have had this experience lately and now I sadly join the club. Our kitty, the one that strayed our way exactly fourteen years ago, died today. She's been declining for years, but we thought she was hanging in there quite nicely for an old cat! But her body hit the wall this week and she stopped eating. After a couple of days of no improvement we took her to the vet and they said she had kidney failure, and had probably been dealing with that for years. Anyway, we brought her back home for one more night and to say our good byes, and then this morning we took her back and let her go peacefully to sleep. She was so miserable and had gotten so much worse through that night that it was a relief to be able to ease her pain. Still, argh, hard. So so hard. She leaves a huge hole that will be felt for a long time to come.
