gem225: me holding my two cats, Cisco and Circe, as kittens (blode katzen)
[personal profile] gem225
Circe died in the night, in her cat bed on her favorite chair. I'm glad that she didn't have to go to the vet again, and I'm glad that yesterday afternoon she came on to my lap and rested there for quite a while. I loved her very much, and I'll miss her. She was such a good kitten girl, and she loved being on the arm of the big chair while I was knitting and watching TV. She caught a bird once and brought it in the house (I was able after a while to get it away from her and it flew away). Just the best darling kitten. The night before last, she came up on our bed and slept a while with us.

I suspect that I'm going to be crying again soon, but that's all right.

Now we have to take care of Cisco, her brother, who thank goodness is doing well, and of each other.

Thank you for all of your sympathy and support.

I'm so sorry - this is heartbreaking news. It's such a blessing she was able to pass in her own home, in a special spot. It's little comfort, but one can be grateful for that. Huge, huge :::HUGS:::

I'm so sad and grieve with you. I too am happy that she was able to cross over in her own bed without the trauna of the trip to the Vet.

*HUGS* to you. I lost my oldest kitten this year as well (her in the icon), so you have all my sym-and-empathy. I'm glad that she got to spend the rest of her time with you and at home, though.

I'm so sorry, Gail. It sucks so badly to lose a beloved friend like that. But I share your sense of peace that she got to go in her own bed, at her own time.

Despite being an honest to heavens monotheist, it comforts me to think of our cat friends being welcomed to the Catnip Fields of Grandmother Bast. (After all, why should I expect cats to be limited by my theology?)

*hugs* forever. Losing a pet is not something you can ever be fully prepared for, not really. It always hits harder and hurts more than you can ever expect.

Circe was a very lucky cat, to be so well-loved.

I am so sorry for your loss. At least she got to go in her cat bed on her favorite chair. I always think that's better than that last trip to the vet. *hugs*

*hugs* You gave her a great life, and that sounds like the best possible way she could have gone when she had to.
