A Kitty's Life Well Lived

Sunday, March 10, 2013

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.

    I am SO sorry for your loss!! She was a gorgeous cat, and I am certain you gave her an awesome life! The pure, unconditional love and joy that they bring to our lives makes the pain of their loss worth it all. May you find comfort in your fondest memories and your beautiful pictures. My heart really goes out to you. I anticipate losing one of ours soon, and it's never easy to say goodbye. It is a blessing to soak up their love and spoil them as best we can though, knowing that time is short.
