We had to take our sweet girl for her final trip to the vet today. Now that it's over I actually feel a bit relieved. It has been an emotional few weeks trying to decide when the right time was to make the call.

DD24 was home this weekend which was nice. Poor Spotty showed us Monday that the time was coming quickly. We spent a bit of time on my porch, one of her favorite places, today after school. Sorry it's sideways

I'm so sorry, I know it is hard. She was a beauty. It so good that you listened to her, and did what was best, even though it hurts.

Hugs to you.

Spotty is Beautiful

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

I am waiting until my senior cat tells me his time has come. He is diabetic and is holding steady for now. But, he is 15 years old. The vet says it could be sooner rather than later.

My heart goes out to you. Thanks for sharing your kitty's beautiful picture.

Thank you all for your kind words and support. Special thank you to Catlove for making the picture right side up :-)

Barely slept the past two nights so I feel like a walking zombie. Today was school-wide pumpkin carving so lots of Super Hyper kids . Hopefully I'll sleep well tonight!
