for the love of cats
my profile pic is of my gracie and me. when i bought my current house, the people that sold it to me couldn't take her with, they were moving to a retirement home. we were joking when we said..."oh, does the cat come with the house?" and they replied that if we wanted her, we could have her. otherwise she had to go to a shelter. we immediately said we'd take her and we had her for 7 years. this past october, she had to be put down because of liver failure. my heart was broken. i held her as they gave her the shots. not wanting her to be with somebody she didn't know. she was only 10 years old...i was hoping i'd have at least another 8 years with her. i have a little wooden urn with her ashes in it...telling my fiance, if something happens to me, you make sure you put her with me. i sure do miss her.
SO SORRY ABOUT GRACIE.IT IS WRITTEN THE LION WILL LAY DOWN WITH THE LAMB.THAT MEANS WE WILL SE OUR FURY KIDS IN HEAVEN SOME DAY.THAT KEEPS ME GOINGT ON DAYS ,WHEN I MISS MY SWEET DOMINO ,WHO HAD TO BE PUT DOWN AFTER 17 YEARS WITH US. CATS LEAVE PAW PRINTS ON OUR HEARTS.THAT IS SO TRUE. WE FOUND THAT GIVING ANOTHER CAT A CHAQNCE FOR A GOOD LIFE WITH US ,IS A GREAT WAY TO REMEMBER THE LOST ONCE.WE HAVE CAT # 18 NOW OVER THE LAST 18 YEARS AND WE FIND THEM HOMES ,OR KEEP THEM.NOW 4 IN OUR HOUSE.
I LIKE WHT YOU DID .YOU TOUGHT ME SOMETHING ABOUT THE ASHES.WILL DO THE SAME FROM NOW ON.TY DOLLIE IN SOUTH BEND .CAT MOM OF 4 PRESENTLY.
thank you both for the comforting words. i tear up every time i think of gracie. she was such a sweetheart. i know my late husband and grandparents will watch over her until i get there. its still so heartbreaking though.... since, i've taken in a stray and adopting 2 more that were abandoned and abused wanting to give them a good home. but i will always miss my gracie.
How sad, my sentiments. Having lost a furry child to cancer, I can relate to your story, thanks for sharing it.
I agree, she is definitely in Heaven, because animals will be/are there. This too keeps me going. I have an 18 year old cat who is in kidney failure right now. I know I won't have him too much longer, although he isn't really 'sick' yet, he's lost lots of weight. But I know where he will be with all my other animals that have gone on before. My dog has cancer, and probably has only weeks to live. So it's a sad time in my house for me right now. Coming here helps to comfort me and remind me they will be in a better place.
