Bilesuck Posted April 24, 2008 Share Posted April 24, 2008 This past Saturday, I had to put my 19 year old alley cat to sleep. She had the start of Kidney failure and I could have given her pills and drugs to possibly extend her life another couple of months. That is not how I think she would have wanted it though. In the course of about 5 days she lost over 2.5 pounds of weight and just was not her usual self. Trip to the vet and an overnight stay later, and I had a rough choice to make (the GF made it with me). So I held her in my arms as the gave the shot and felt her life leave her body. It was extremely hard, as I have had this companion for over half my life. Some of the things that have happened since I got her in my life. Finished High School and College Had two major relationships (lasting at least 6 years each) Been through 8 cars 3 different apartments (all in the same building, reconstruction) and through it all she was there. So please indulge me while I write this to my friend I will miss not getting yelled at first thing when I get up I will miss you screwing up my computer games by walking on the keyboard I will miss taking a nap and having you sleep on my chest I will miss arguing with you on who owns the footstool you would sleep on and who gets to use it I will miss you trying to steal (usually successfully) one of my taco's from taco hell I will miss getting you a side of Carnitas from Chipotle so you wouldn't eat my burrito I will miss waking in the middle of the night to you staring at me I will miss cooking dinner and having you right there begging for whatever I will give you I will miss you having to be in the bathroom no matter what we were doing Jen (my GF) will miss her little lifeguard (the cat would sit and watch her when she took a bath or shower Most of all, I will miss you my furry friend Here's some pics of her, most of these are from the past few months. I kinda knew it would be soon, but didn't know how soon. You can click the thumbs for bigger pics. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
