My almost 16 year old girl had to leave me today. She was on a downward decline for about three weeks. Her arthritis seemed to be really bothering her. She wasn't eating as much and flat out refused a meal for the last two days. Then last night, I think she threw a blood clot. She couldn't walk and I found her crashed in her litter pan unable to stand. It was the first time I've had to make this kind of decision and it has left me heartbroken and utterly devastated. She was my first pet and the most beautiful cat I have ever seen. I will miss her terribly.
Sleep now, babygirl. Free from your pain. Climb the highest scratching post in heaven and bathe in the sun once again. I love you and will miss you forever.
Until we meet again..
