A Pet’s Passing

Cats_heartwormdiseaseI am thankful for every day we enjoy with Misha and Grisha, our amazing black Scottish Terriers. They are big love machines with little guy bodies on sturdy legs, happy to run, eat, and sleep. And of course do their big business, which they’ve been doing a lot of in recent days, but that’s another story for another day.

All that to say, some friends’ cat recently passed away, and my heart goes out to them. Moments like these are so difficult.

Why do we live so many years and our pets live such relatively short eyes cats animals green eyes pet 1920x1080 wallpaper_wallpaperbeautiful_21lives? Never mind that the oldest cat in recent history lived to be 38 years old and the oldest on record right now is 24. Our friends’ cat was 16, but when that day comes, how sad.

They had to put the cat to sleep, and that can mess with your mind. But really, she was already going, going. gone. So difficult.

The family gathered their beloved pet, buried her in the backyard (technically illegal, but hey), and made a slide show in her memory. We oohed and aahed over the sweet kitty posed in her prime.

It’s the least that we can do when friends lose their beloved pet. Rest in peace.
