white paws and black velvet....

i miss my kitty already....this was not just a cat...she was the only creature who was my baby....i wanted a cat, i went and picked her out and brought her home and the last few years I complained about her at times and yet there was nothing like a soft cat hopping on to your lap and purring like a tractor to calm the nerves and relax me... i decided to take her to a pain free home today...which i like to think is cat heaven...i could see it in her eyes on Monday nite when she jumped onto my lap while i was all cozied up with my quilt on the sofa watching TV. I was pleasantly surprised when two white paws creeped up onto the quilt and then her head and the big sad eyes ...that was it "her eyes" said it all ...i am not well and i need comfort....i have been worried about our dog and here Snowball is the one that i needed to "lovingly" ease her poor quality of living that she has had the last few months.

this black and white velvety cat was almost 13 years old (born in April 1996) and has peacefully passed away today.


did I know I would feel this way? all of a sudden a decision had to be made and i new it was the right one....I watched and listened on Monday nite and i finally got the message .....it is time to say goodbye.

my soft little "snowball" pet was mine from October 1996 to Feb 5, 2009 {ny nickname for her was "precious"}

I feel so bad that you had to say farewell to Snowball. I am sure she is much better off in her new home but it is always so hard to say goodbye!!

I'm so sorry about your kitty! It's never an easy choice to make to let them go. Our pets bring us so much joy and unconditional love. Thinking of you.

I'm so sorry about Snowball, Donna. As a fellow pet lover, I can feel your pain. It's an added hardship to have to make that decision, but you knew her better than anyone so remain confident in your decision.
