Angel Kitty - 3 months old
My Angel Kitty was diagnosed with cancer in January. I discovered a lump in her neck and when the vet examined her they found it was cancerous and the cancer had spread to her lungs as well. I decided not to pursue treatment so that the time she had left would be peaceful and happy. I worked from home as often as I could, making sure she was comfortable and I spent as much time with her as I could.
Angel Kitty 2013
This past Wednesday I had to say goodbye to my friend of 15 years. It broke my heart, but it was the right decision and she passed away in my arms. I was beyond privileged to have this courageous and graceful creature in my life. I still expect to see her sitting on the sofa and every now and then I still hear her meow. I think she had a happy life. I know I've been happier because of her. I'll miss my Angel Kitty, but as I look at her pictures I see all the evidence of a kitty's life well lived.
