It hurts so bad I can’t stand it. Pia, my darling little Siamese kitty, companion, fur child of twenty years is gone she passed away this morning at 0915hrs quietly sedated by the local vet as I petted and comforted her into the dark void of the beyond. We had traveled to many places and she had been my fur kid for so long. Few other relationships have lasted as long or been as pleasant as this one. I loved to hear her tiny bell tinkling as she strode along to investigate what I was doing or to check out something that sparked her feline curiosity. She loved to walk on me at night and then snuggle against me and purr that contented purr cats have when they are pleased.
Of late she had been in poor health having seizures and then recovering for a few days. I knew the end was near and I had to steel my nerves to take her to the vet’s office and do that which was only fair and stop the pain and struggle. She was one strong kitty and she didn’t want to go-maybe she wanted to chase one more butterfly in the garden, but it was time and I sent her on her way to peace and tranquility.
Now I sit and think of her and miss her so bad. She was the last of my fur kids and she is gone, no more Siamese meows, purrs or bell tinkling just dead silence……… All I have are sweet memories and tears.
