Lost our Beloved 20 yo Kitty Tonight
Our 20 yo kitty, Boo, has been dealing with cancer, and she fought it like a trooper, but finally was getting so tired. It was time to take her in and say goodbye.
It was SO unbelievably hard. We will miss her terribly. She's been with us through thick and thin. We had her from kittenhood, and such a sweetie, she had the most gentle, loving spirit. She loved to be held and carried around. Her coat was solid white, and her eyes were a pretty yellow-green. While completely deaf her whole life, she was extra perceptive and observant. Her loud meows were completely endearing to us.
Our 12yo son is heartbroken. He has an autism spectrum disorder and was particularly attached to Boo.
I guess it hurts in direct proportion to how much she was loved. I truly feel depressed right now. I'm sure any pet owners out there can really
relate to this loss.
