Today there is sadness in my world. After having 5 wonderful years with my cat, she died this weekend. When we got her in 2014, after she had gone through difficulty in her life. She was a bit sick, and very nervous at times…but once I met her I knew she was coming home with us. We wanted to give her a safe home with lots of love. And that is what we did.

But she gave so much more. She was such a beautiful creature. Waking me up every morning, laying with me on the couch during the day, and stretched out beside me on falling asleep, or sitting on my lap when I went through my illness. She was with us all the time. So gentle and kind.

Now we had to let her go. The pain of her illness was too much for her. While I am experiencing great sadness, I also still feel the warming gratitude of having her in my life. Even though it was only 5 years…they were wonderful beyond belief. I can only hope that our joy scratching your belly, brushing you, the almost constant purring with us, or just hearing you little claws click along the hardwood floor as you walked to check out your food bowl. Every moment was a joy for me. Of course I wished we could have continued our time together, but you were ready. You will live on with me.

Thank you Kitty for being such a wonderful creature. You will be missed, but not forgotten. Good bye cutie…
