To my wonderful TT Girl

With a heavy heart, I scooped up TT in my arms Tuesday night. I carried her in my arms in the car to the vets to help her cross the bridge. She sat on my chest,her eyes looking all around as we drove. I thought I may be making a mistake by doing this today but she had other plans. We opened the carrier at the office and she willingly walked in, something she never did. I knew she was ready. She went to sleep peacefully at 5:25 pm est. She was brought to Angel View this morning where she will be cremated. She was an indoor kitty and will remain so. I should be getting her home next week sometime.



Rest your head sweet one. Go and wait for me, because someday I will be there with you. I know now, you are not hurting. I still get up and look to where you had your stinky goodness to see if I need to give you more. I look from the kitchen table, to your sleep spot pillows and find a shadow of you. My minds eye plays aweful tricks right now. In the short time we had with each other you have made me happy when I was sad,loved me when I was cranky, and gave me all your love unconditionally. In the end, I hope you knew that I was your strength when you had none.

It is always with a heavy heart that we say good-bye to our furry friends. We love them, do our best for them, and then one day they leave us and we cry buckets of tears.

Purrs, hugs and tail wags.

Treat me kindly, my beloved friend for no heart in all this world is more grateful for kindness than the loving heart of me.

Do not break my spirit with a stick for though I should lick your hand between blows, your patience and understanding will more quickly teach me the things you would have me learn.

Speak to me often, for your voice is the world's sweetest music, as you must know by the soft touch of my fur against your leg, when your footsteps fall upon my waiting ear.

Please take me inside when it is cold and wet for I am a domesticated animal, no longer accustomed to bitter elements.

I ask no greater glory than to have the privilege of sitting at your feet beside the hearth.

Keep my pan filled with water for I cannot tell you when I suffer thirst.

Feed me clean food that I may stay well, to romp and play, to lay by your side, and stand ready, willing and able to protect you with my life, should your life be in danger.

And my friend, when I am old and no longer enjoy good health and sight, do not make heroic efforts to keep me going, I am not having fun.

Please see that my trusting life is taken gently.

I shall leave this earth knowing with the last breath I draw that my fate was always safest in your hands.

Jennifer said...

I saw the memorial on Daisy's blog and I just wanted to say that this has brought me to tears. I have put so many pets to rest in my life and it's so hard. I still miss them all so terribly much. I have a cat right now who is 10 and I always wonder when her day may come too. I'm so very sorry. She's a beautiful girl. You gave her a wonderful life and she loved you for it.
