She was my companion for 17yrs. She often sat on my lap while I worked on my website. She was an indoor outdoor kitty. Her sister died 2 years prior. So her life became even more precious to me after losing Missy, her sibling.
With way too much sadness I had to have her put to sleep on Tuesday as she went into renal failure. I had a wonderful vet who was very kind to me and my kitty, Munchkin. Of course I have cried buckets of tears and am just now starting to pick myself back up and rejoin my life.
It's hard. I have these moments and I feel such sadness.
These are her last few pictures. The first one was after a day outside (her choice), the middle one was her coming out of one of her hiding places. She had so many!
The last one is her scent marking a rock in my yard.
I am grateful that she shared my life. She leaves an emptiness in my heart that only time will heal.
I am an avid walker and hiker. My favorite is a long hike. I also enjoy taking off and going on a meandering walk for a few hours. I've hiked rim to rim in the Grand Canyon and I did 3 Burning Boot Walks on Vancouver Island.
