    Default It never get's any easier... put my little Minga kitty to sleep this morning :(

    Had to put to sleep my poor cancer kitty this morning - mass had filled most of her abdomen, been struggling with the decision all week...last night she finally lost interest in life. She was a special girl, so gentle & sweet tempered, everyone's favorite. My friends joked that she was my "drinking buddy" - when I sat down with a wine spritzer at night, she would sit beside me and request occasional sips. They said "at least you aren't drinking alone" lol. I'll miss you, my dear sweet Minga. See you at the Rainbow Bridge

    I'm so sorry that you have lost Minga. Sounds like a good drinking buddy, and a good friend, on both sides.

    I agree that it never ever gets easier to lose one. May Minga enjoy her time at the Rainbow Bridge with all of the others that have crossed. Just know that she will be waiting for you to come.
