Radtrisha Posted March 17, 2014 Report Share Posted March 17, 2014 We lost our beautiful girl yesterday. I can barely function I am so sad. She showed up in our driveway almost 5 years ago to this day. My husband was allergic to cats so she lived on our porch, then he magically discovered his cat allergies had disappeared. We fattened her up but brought her to the vet because she had horrible breath, well that lead to taking all her teeth out. She had many happy and plump years with us. The bond between her and I was the strongest I have ever had with an animal. She followed me around the house, comes when called, and was constantly glued to my lap. I would take her outside to eat grass and drink out of the birdbath... she never went far and always came back to me every few minutes to brush against me. If the garage door opened but I didn't come in, she would pace around all the doors trying to figure out where I was just so she could greet me. She was my little shadow, and my little friend. This was one of the hardest paragraphs I've ever had to write because I kept wanting to write it in present tense, when in fact, she is not here. When we got towards the end she just stopped eating. We had tons of tests done, Xrays, and still the vets were stumped. As soon as the snow started melting, my husband and I dug out an area so she could eat grass one last time. Eventually she could barely hold her self up and we knew it was almost time. I had to leave to sing in my band 4 hours away from home, and was a basket case all the way up. When we got home we found her passed on, in the same place I usually sit with her, looking at the door. She never sleeps there unless she is on my lap, and she chose this as her place to pass on. My husband says maybe that is her way of saying "thank you"... I feel guilty I wasn't home when it happened, but at the same time, maybe being away gave her the privacy and peace to move on (which I heard is what many animals instincts are). At least I keep telling myself that to feel better. Now comes the long journey. My husband and I have been crying every 20 minutes, and I am just so angry we had to get her so late in her life because we love her so much, she was our child. I know I need help, so I figured the first step would be to come here and share my story full to people who would understand. Thanks for listening...
