My Beloved Sassy

Tuesday, May 01, 2012

June 11, 1994 Sassy and her sister Muffin (she passed August 2011) came home with me and my mother from the Edison Animal Shelter Cage 17. She became my best friend, constant companion. My entire world.
8 years ago we becamse comcerned about her kidneys and swtiched her to dry kidney health cat food. She was doing great.
July 2011 we, dbf and I started doing subcue fluid 100mls a day 1x a day to help flush her kidneys the levels were deadly high. They came down somewhat but were not going to improve any more. We even started mixing wet kidney food with her favorite friskies and fancy feast cans.
March 2012 we had to start steroid injections once every 2 weeks her back legs were getting weak. that helped for a bit.
April 28 2012 I spoke to her favorite vet as she was weak like she hadn't had a steriod injection in weeks not a week. She was crying more, adament about getting outside (which is not her she has never been outside) and just gave me the look.
So April 30 2012 I had to make her final vet appointment she is weak and not herself. She will be going to kitty heaven on May 3 2012.
My heart is sharrtering, I can't stop sobbing. I am so miserable and despressed.
DBF doesn't understand. My work is ehh about it. My mom is trying. I think Sassy knows and understands.

    We love our pets with everything we have. They are our best friends, who listen to us when we need to vent/cry/celebrate. They love us unconditionally, and there are few people in the world that can love us that way - and pets are those people for us.

    I know how it is to lose a loved one - I'm here for you. I'm so glad you were able to have so many wonderful years with your Sassy-girl. She has been the very best companion to you - and now you're being it for her. You know it's her time, and she knows it too. She knows and you know what is best for her and that it is time for her to rest.

    I love how hard you've worked and I know how much you have put towards her to have a healthy and productive life. You've loved her and now it's time to say goodbye. It's so not easy. I'm glad you have the chance to say goodbye though - say goodbye and know I'm here for you too (even if it is only for virtual hugs and such).

    Much love to Sassy - I'm thinking about you today, and I'll think about you all tomorrow. My dogs send their love to her. She'll always be in your heart, which doesn't seem like enough right now - but she thanks you and knows what a good life you've given her.

    Much love to you all in this difficult time - and my deepest condolences.

    My yoga instructor taught me this:

    To be human, is to
    Love that which is mortal
    Clasp them tightly to your bones
    Then release them when it's time for them to go.

    Bless you and little Sassy!
