Yesterday, at 2:00 in the afternoon, we said a tearful goodbye to our beloved girl cat named Kitty. For any of you animal lovers out there, you understand. I've heard so many people say "they're just like our children", I disagree, I don't think they are just like our children, I believe they are "just like our beloved pets" who are in their own right, very special family members indeed.
Kitty, against all odds (she had many conditions), lived to be almost 18 years old. She was my first true pet and the longest lived and a very happy, warm, loving creature.
To you Kitty, I miss you, I love you and I will never forget you. My cat, my friend, my constant companion, my teacher, my healer and my knitting partner.
