It's been a weekend mixed with joy and sorrow. In life that's often how things come. The joy of the Royal Wedding, as wonderful as it all was to watch, was tinted with a sorrow of the heart as I watched my dear, sweet Miss Kitty slowly dwindling away. Unwell for a while, we kept hoping that she'd rally. She was already tiny and with no desire to eat any more, there seemed little else the vet could do for her.
By yesterday evening we knew in our hearts that she couldn't carry on this way, and our very caring vet said it was the best for her too. This afternoon, as she lay with her head nestled on my hand, and Rick stroking her as she used to enjoy, we bid her farewell and she gently slipped away.
In memory and celebration of
May 1995 - April 30, 2011
Thank you, dear Father, for giving us this sweet kitty
to love and be loved by her.
Thank you for the great pleasure and comfort
she gave us so freely.
Thank you for all the sweet and funny things she did
that made us laugh with joy and rejoice that she was in our lives.
Thank you for loving your little creatures
and for receiving what you love back to yourself.
We celebrate her life
and give You praise for your good gift to us!
We'll miss you so, so much, Missy!
Furry hugs and little purry kisses,
