We just got back from the vet where we let Sneakers, my precious fur baby, go on to her next life. I had her as a kitten 16 years ago, and I just don't know how to be without her. She was always with me, always behind my feet or escorting g me around the house. Who will warn me about the dangers of the shower? Who will make sure I'm up at 7 am? Who's.going to keep the couch warm for me? Or sit and keep watch on the house from the hallway?

We knew it was going to be soon. She just didn't have the energy to do much lately. This morning I went to find her (she was hiding under the baking rack) and I offered her some food, she turned it down, and I feel like she told me she was ready. She didn't want any water and she was having a hard time walking. Of curse, she.accepted the situation gracefully, and seemed to be confused as to why my husband and I were so upset.

I love you baby kitty, and I always will

sneakers momma, I am so sorry you're going through this right now.

How lucky for you to have had her for so long and how lucky for her to have had you as a momma.

I'm glad it seemed as though she was at peace with the decision. I hope that will ease you in the times to come.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know you're never alone in your grief.

Sending you love and hoping for peace in your heart soon,

Rest in peace my sweet baby boy, I can't wait to see you again.

Sneakers momma how sorry I am that this has happened.   After 16 years you will have so many memories of your sweet Sneakers. It is so clear that you loved each other very much and I'm sure she had a wonderful life.

My Rudi cat passed two years ago at the age of 17 and even though I was lucky to have
him that long I found it unbearable to let him go and although the raw pain has
subsided now there will always be a hole in my heart for him.

I too want to reach out and tell you you are not alone even though you would feel it as grief is one the loneliest things one can experience. But there are people here who will shed tears for you
and your loss and wish you love and in time, peace. 

One day you may feel like sharing one of his pictures with us.

Blessings and love
