EquineLVR, how are you doing? I am so terribly sorry -- I lost my darling Smudge, also 17, last September, and it still hurts. I'm certain that your kitty knew how much you loved her and how hard it was for you to let her go and that she was grateful to you for doing the right thing, no matter how difficult it was. Sending a huge hug and jingles your way, sweetheart.
EquineLVR, I'm so sorry you have to deal with this. I have the same decision to make in the near future and I can empathize with you about what a hard decision it is. I wish there was something more I could say or do for you. *hug*
I'm so sorry. It's the last, greatest, gift we can give them, but it tears out such a large part of our hearts in the giving. The peaceful, painless departure is worth it, however, even if it takes us much time to get through the pain to that realization. You are doing the right thing for your heart cat. She thanks you.
Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past - let us accept our own responsibility for the future.
My brave, beautiful girl passed over the rainbow bridge..
She went very quickly and very gracefully..
Akasha - I hope you know how much I love you and how much I will miss seeing your big beautiful blue eyes every morning... I cherish every moment and every memory you gave me. You were my girl from day one and you always will be..
With all my heart, I miss you.. Gospeed Kashi and I will see you again. Give Bubs, Turbo, Norman and Jade my love and enjoy the green pastures.
I love you,
Hickstead 1996-2011 Godspeed
" Hickstead is simply the best and He lives forever in our hearts"
Akasha 1992-2012 - I will always love you sweet girl.
