Good-Bye Old Friend

I am sad today. My best four-legged friend of 20+ years died this morning.

It was time and she was suffering, but ... it still makes me sad. She was with me before I even met my husband. We've been married 15 years. She is the last to pass away of the three cats we had between us when we got married.

Maggie's momma was a dumpster cat. She crawled into the bathroom of some friends over Easter weekend and had kittens on their bathroom rug. When they got back Sunday night they found her along with four kittens. Lucky for them, the bathroom door was closed so the cats didn't get into the rest of their apartment! They used the bath tub as their litter box. The momma left after about 4 weeks and I adopted Maggie.

I like this picture because you can see the orange spot on her forehead and the one white toe she had. Good-bye Maggie! I will miss you!

I am so sorry.... I can't imagine having an animal that long and so this must be truly hard. Will be thinking of you.

I'm so sorry. The only comfort being time, I only want to say that she obviously had a well-loved life to live to 20.

Oh, I am so sorry, Lynn. I have lost dogs that I've had for almost this long and it was so painful. I still tear up when I think about one in particular, Chelsea. Still miss her to this day. I hope that Goldie will give you comfort during this difficult time for you. All my best.

Oh, Lynn. I am so sorry. She was beautiful. Pets make our lives complete, but do leave a little hole when they pass on.

So sorry. She was a beauty. My nearly 19 year old cat died. He saw me through my teen years and twenties. We're lucky to have them as long as we do but they're still missed.
