Saying goodbye to a beloved friend and pet is so difficult. Skitz wasn't my cat but yet was the whole family's kitty because she lived with us all at one time or another.
Becky is having a hard time right now because Skittsy was a "cool" kitty and was her first kitty. She followed her everywhere. Becky was a wonderful "mommy" to Skitz although right now she is blaming herself and second guessing everything. She is an animal lover and takes such good care of her furr babies. It will take time. Most of us have been through losing a beloved pet. This is a first for her.
The pictures are from Becky's facebook. She has a memorial page for her Skittsycat. I told her that I would do a montage of sorts in my journal. She is touched by all the thoughts and prayers being sent her way.
The outdoor pictures were taken on Saturday. I think that is what is the hardest thing to deal with. Skitz was romping around and seemed perfectly healthy on Saturday. Within 24 hours, she was dying. Not that we are ever prepared but this was just such a sudden shock.
I worry because Becky keeps so much inside. I know eventually she will be ok with this. So, we march forward. Megan is coming home next Saturday. I know she will be totally shocked also. I haven't said anything toher when she's e-mailed me.
So much is on the plate this week. My bus was in an accident on the way to work the day we put the kitty down. No one was hurt but it wasn't a good start for a day that got worse.
Oy, I think I'm rambling. I'm whooped. Think I'll give Becky a call and then head off to sleep.
Hugs to all! You're the best! Chris
