“I brought her into the family, I’ll be there when she leaves it.” ~ Me
I had to make a heartbreakingly difficult decision Thursday, whether or not to have my beloved tortoise shell cat of 13 years, Cleo Marie, put to sleep. I was with her till the very end and shortly past that. I simply petted her and whispered how sorry I was for what was happening, how much I love her, how much I’ll miss her, how grateful I am for her love and loyalty, even while I was away, while I drenched her head in my tears. I know ultimately I did the right thing for her, the best decision for her; it definitely doesn’t feel like the best thing for me though.
