Miss Kitty 2000 – 2012
Lost our pet and companion of 12 years this morning. Had to put her down. I’ve been through this before and it never gets easier.
We’ve been dog people and just didn’t think it was possible to get that attached to a cat. But we did. She was a wonderful creature to have around. She was always there to pet or crawl into your lap and feel good doing it.
Cats love you in their own way and quite differently than dogs. Dogs love and need us. Cats just let us love them. And, contrary to popular thinking, they do need us. They just hide that need well. If you are perceptive, you will recognize the signs.
We took this hard and yes, we cried. I’m not ashamed of that. It’s good to know we can still feel that way about another creature.
I hope you don’t mind me sharing this hurt with you. Maybe by spreading the pain around it won’t hurt so much.
