Had to say goodbye to my baby yesterday.



Her kidneys gave out. Vet thinks she had an undiagnosed problem most of her life. (Never fat, and a very good at filling her litter tray when she had one.)

No more rat guts between the toes.
No more "casts" full of feathers and feet on the pillow for me to find with cheek or lughole.
No more "THE DOOR" is closed and I want it open NIAOW.

Goodbye shithead. Fuck I miss you.

1. Oh, she was a beauty.

I've been there, and no matter how annoying they are, there is nothing quite like the unconditional love our furry babies bring us. The memories live on.

Blessings!

20. I'm sorry for the loss of your family member ...

and anybody who doesn't believe they are a full member of the family ... IS WRONG.

We recently had to put our 20 year old cat to sleep, after she woke me in the middle of the night crying (this cat NEVER said anything unless there was a problem) ... she had suffered a seizure. After consoling her, she regained her ability to move after about 20 minutes of holding her. We knew that we couldn't let that happen again.

So the thought of what you went through is fresh in my mind.

She looks so peaceful and happy--no doubt you were a great pet parent.

It is so hard to lose a pet. It really hurts. It's ok to be sad and to remember
all of the good times.

Take care

our pets is the hardest continuing struggle we have had over the years. Always former fosters, always a member of the family.

I'm glad she had you to live with while she was here.
