In Memory

See this little beauty? This is our sweet Fluffy. She passed away last Friday from feline leukemia. I was so fortunate to be with her right before she passed. We have known for over a year she was sick, but she held on. Last week I knew it wouldn't be long, but we were leaving on Friday for the weekend, and was so scared she would pass while we were gone. I got up early that morning and laid with her, as she could no longer lift her head. I left to go sit on the porch and 15 minutes later came in to check on her and she was gone.
I feel so lucky to have spent those last few minutes with her, Brad said she held on until I got up that morning:) She was our spunky, fun, energetic little puffball and we love and miss her dearly. The house feels empty without her.

Rachel has been pretty devastated, as have I. We are looking in to getting another kitty, but I don't think either of us is ready quite yet. For now we will just remember her fun, quirky, kitty self:)

Oh, I'm so sorry about your beautiful little kitty. We are very close to our pets, too. They are more family to us than some of our relatives! lol

I hope your next little one is just as special.

Blessings from Ohio...
