Thank you all for your kind words when I had to put my eighteen year old cat down a week and a half ago. It was so hard, but I realized that I wouldn’t trade all the good years just because of a bad ending.

This weekend I went and adopted a new kitten. I’d forgotten how much work and little one is, but she’s so much fun! Our house definitely has a happier vibe to it again.

I totally agree with EVERY word.

And, yes, kittens are a lot of work but they are heart healers too.

Name please?

So sorry for the loss of your beloved cat. The best way to honor your cat's memory is to adopt another.

Her name is Mercedes, but we call her Sadie.

When we were going through the adoption process many years ago (for a kid, not a cat. Lol), DH wanted to name our child Mercedes because, “Then I can buy her one when she’s 16.” Ha! Anyhow, we adopted a five year old whose name was Tiffany. I convinced him to keep that name and just buy her jewelry from Tiffany’s. He started a charm bracket for her that he added to every year until graduation. So, since he never got the name he wanted for our daughter, I thought maybe it would make getting a new kitten easier on him. :-D

We lost our beloved cat, too. Now, we have 2 kittens that we adopted from the county. They are so much fun to have. They certainly need more attention than our 14 year old did.

Enjoy your kitty!
