she´s gone

my beloved 16-year-old persian cat is dead

We had to let her go on Friday,she was dangerously thin, always had been but even more so the last couple of months.

She was so weak, she could only walk one or two steps and then her hind legs would go and she´d just lie there.

It was the most difficult, heartbreaking thing I´ve ever had to do but I didn´t want her to suffer or trip on the stairs and fall.

I did not want her to die alone, I held her in my arms.

I´ve had her for longer than my two wee boys.

She´d always waited at the door for me to come home. She´d slept in my bed (and I don´t give a …. if people say yuck)

She sat at the boys doors when they were wee baby’s crying, she “comforted” them by gently licking their head (only a wee bit, don´t give me the hygiene talk now)

She always came and cuddled, every night, in front of the telly on my lap.

She´d never hissed, never scratched anyone, didn´t have a bad bone in her body.



I am your average wife,mother,friend,employee....a bit lost in my world, a bit crazy at times but always good for a laugh - I think ;-)
