A bit of saddness

I didn't realize that it had been over 2 months since I updated. I'll have to do another post when my spirits are up. Tonight my furbaby of 11 1/2 years went to the Rainbow Bridge. Whiskers didn't greet me when I got home like usual. After running Lenae around to lessons, and finishing up supper I decided to call for him. He still didn't show, so I then went to look around the yard. I found him by our back steps. I knew it wasn't good. Kerry helped me get him inside where we made the emergency call to our vet. It was all over in about 15 to 20 min. from the time I made the call. We'll miss Whiskers. He was like no cat I had ever had or seen. He LOVED people. He was everybody's lap cat. As long as you extended your hand, he was there. Many people often commented on how friendly he was. He also liked to jump up into my arms...there was no waiting for me to pick him up. It was always, "Notice me, Now!" I know now that he is free from pain. Lenae of course it taking this very hard. I hope that she will soon heal. Death is such a hard lesson for little people, and big ones too. Until next time...Whiskers, I hope you are enjoying being free!
