It was time. She was hurting, and she deserved only the best we could give her. We weren’t expecting it to be tonight, but tonight was the right time.
Yesterday, she could barely stand.
Today, she fell over several times trying to walk to her food bowl.
She enjoyed her favorite turkey this evening, and we showered her with love and stayed with her to the very end.
She was a good cat, and we will miss her dearly.
For now, Princess the Understudy will take over for her sister. There’ll be another cat one day, and probably sooner than we would like. Princess is very social and will need a friend. That won’t happen today. It probably won’t happen tomorrow.
It’ll happen when we can think about our wonderful, personality-packed best friend we escorted to a better place tonight.
Well, probably sooner than that. Princess will tell us when she needs a new friend.
In the meantime… Goodbye, Tia.
We loved your dearly, and we always will.
We already miss you.
