We had to say good-bye to Kitty this week and it was a hard thing. She got sick and died before I could get her to the vet. I did not even realize that she was ill. My girls really miss her already and want another cat, but we just can't. Too many of the older kids are allergic no matter what we try and a couple of the Grandkids have asthma, so kitties are out of the picture for now. Still, it is never easy to lose a friend and this one slept with the girls, purred at them, and really loved them. Their hearts are sad and it is hard to understand how this takes time too. This week has been full of tears and missing and good-byes. It is a time to remember that friends are those who love of unconditionally, just as we are, messy rooms and all.
“Such short little lives our pets have to spend with us, and they spend most of it waiting for us to come home each day.
It is amazing how much love and laughter they bring into our lives and even how much closer we become with each other because of them.”
― John Grogan, Marley and Me: Life and Love With the World's Worst Dog
Good-bye Kitty, we will never forget how much we loved you and needed you in our lives.
