I just checked and it’s six months since I’ve been here.
Last November we suddenly became aware that our little mitten had a health problem when she began breathing heavily. Cats are clever like that, they mask their pain. Unfortunately she was hiding several critical conditions and although we tried a month of veterinary treatment and medicating her, we couldn’t save her. The last six months have been so hard because we weren’t ready to say goodbye and she has left a huge gaping hole in our lives.
Our elderly dog, Elsa now requires around the clock care and we think the loss of Samba had an impact on her health too; they really didn’t know life without each other.
I’ve lost so many furry friends over the last few years so I know that many of you will understand the great feelings of loss, but we have to remember how lucky we were to have spent our lives with each other and cherish all the memories we made.
