Dear Annette, Since the congestive heart failure had been detected on Thursday, it's unlikely that anything you did caused your beautiful girl to leave you when she did. It's absolutely normal for us to try to find a reason, to try to find something we could have done differently. We want answers, but we don't always find them. I remember so well trying to find a reason for why my little cat, Buddy Guy, left us six years ago this weekend. Did I do something that caused his cancer? I've come to terms wit the fact that his condition was out of my control. What I did do was love him better than anyone could have, and gave him the best possible life, filled with happiness, while he was with us. I know you did the same for your baby. It's just so darned hard to be left behind. Your girl is within you and all around you as long as you live. The bond you share with her is eternal, and will never be broken. Please try to release the guilt and the temptation to blame yourself. You were an excellent fur-mom, and you did everything you could for her with the information and resources you had at the time. xoxoxo
