S T T L


Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
Since Kylie Cat first got sick last December, she was a real fighter.
We finally had to put Kylie Cat down, and we were heartbroken. It was the kind thing to do, as she had become pretty miserable, and we had foreseen it, but it's a gut-wrenching experience nonetheless. She will be missed.  Every time I come home, I expect to see two sweet kitty faces at the door, happy to see me, and it's a very difficult adjustment to see just one. Such a funny little cat, full of personality.
sit tibi terra levis
may the earth rest lightly upon you

So sorry to hear about your loss. They are such great friends and it's hard not to see their familar faces of comfort every day. I'm sure she would say what a wonderful life she had with you.

Poor cat, sorry for you Jodi :'(

Hilary said...

Oh, no. :( I'm so very sorry for your loss. We lost our sweet Stewart in May -- I agree that making the decision to put a loved kitty to sleep is gut-wrenching, even when they're very sick. I know that no living thing can live forever, but it just feels like such innocent little creatures don't deserve death! Maybe Stewart and Kylie are playing together now, in a giant room in the sky full of laps and yarn.

I'll be thinking of you and hoping the little kitty-sized hole in your heart is healed soon.

It's hard to lose the spirit of the house...it's shocking how empty it is without them.

Jodi, I just found your blog for the first time and your Kylie reminded me so much of our dear beloved Miss Tibby, who we had to say goodbye to last year. Oh, my heart aches for you; it is such a painful loss. I am also left with one cat now, who seems lost as well. We try to honor her spirit every day and please accept all the wishes I am sending your way for comfort in Kylie's loving memories.
