Had to put my cat down today... :(
Monday, August 15, 2011
I had to put my cat, Coleman, down this morning. She was 11 years old. She was very sick and suffering and I know I did the right thing. I even thought I was good with it, until I got to the vet's office and had to hand her over.
I found her December 28, 1999. I was out on patrol, driving around at 2 a.m. I saw this collapsed tent on the side of the road. I stopped to check it out. There were several items in the tent. When I dumped the stuff out, out dropped this tiny little kitten that fit in my palms. I named her Coleman, cuz I found her in a tent.
I took her home, fed her some tuna, and she became part of the family. She was a funny, strange little cat. She would play fetch with her toy mouse and sit on command. I'm gonna miss her...
