Punkin



I know these are the last days of her life.

My heart hurts, watching her grow thinner and more frail as the days of summer begin to wane. I have known for the past few years that her kidneys were failing. She has out-lasted my expectations, for which I am glad.

I will miss her. She has been my companion for fifteen years. A cat of passion and intelligence, she will leave me sadden but grateful for the life we shared.

There is no way to love without the eventual pain. It is sad to watch a furry prepare to leave.

Oh my goodness, Laura, my thoughts are with you...such a painful time.

These Orange ones are special. My Orange Boy (you once said he looked peach colored) Napoleon is CRF and has been with me 18 years. So thin, where he used to be so big. We just don't have them long enough, do we?
Gentle hugs to your beautiful Punkin.
