Sad Day Today











One year ago today, my 20 + year old cat Smokey had a vet appointment at 4:30. She had not been feeling well for about 3 weeks before. She was not eating, and it was hard for her to walk.

We went to the vet & she told us Smokey's organs were shutting down, the best thing we could do for her is put her out of her pain...


We did. It was so hard to let go after 20 years of companionship. I still miss her everyday. I am crying as I write this. Smokey knew when I was sad, she knew if I didn't feel well. She would come lay on me when I was sick. She was my only child for 20 years, it was so hard to say goodbye...
I love you Mokey !

I'm so sorry. I do know what it's like to lose a "baby".

Smokey was such a beautiful cat and I can understand how you feel, because I've been there myself with my babies.

It's always very hard to say goodbye to a furbaby. Mokey looked like a sweet cat.

We are so sorry...it is never easy saying goodbye to our furbabies even when you know it was the right thing to do. We hope all the good memories you have of Smokey helps you...

That is so sad... Those anniversaries are tough... This year on the Birthday of our Siberian Husky Sparkle- who went to the RB back in 1996- we have a little statue that looks like her and we commemorated her birthday by having our picture take with the statue... That would be December 1st on our blogspot... Sometimes it's nice to do something to remember a beloved pet on a special anniversary...

Much love to you as you remember your special "baby"!

Smokey was so beautiful and what a lovely friend to you she must have been. Twenty plus is a good age, but no matter how long they live, it is never long enough.
