Sad days ahead


We've had some sad news...our cat is dying. He's a wonderful 13 year old tabby that we adopted from a barn. What a love our sweet Murmel has been in our lives...He has the cutest purr, sometimes its so loud you have to raise your voice if he's nearby your conversation. Not much of a cuddler, he loves his space, but when he plays hockey, well, he loves an audience. We'll miss him so much. We don't know how much time he has but he'll be loved into a coma if I say too much to the kids...so, they know what's going on but not too much. I just don't want them to find him dead one day and not even have a clue it could happen. So, we just wait, which I think is almost the hardest part. Oh sadness creeps in...

Oh dear, sorry to hear about your kitty, I know how that feels for sure, went down that road twice in 2 years. I wish these little fur babies would live forever... sigh.

We will be praying for your family! In April we had to make the decision to help out our old boy, "Al the cat" who was 15. He was in sad shape and was no longer the dignified (self proclaimed) king of the jungle.

It was "bar none", one of the hardest things I have ever done and I bawled like a baby.

Cherish the last days with your cat and cry all you need to when he finally closes his eyes for the final time. What a gift to have him for so long!

Wiping tears for you!!!
