She's gone

I'm not up to making a huge statement, but did want to post some pictures of our precious kitty Meeko. She died today at 4:25ish. The home visit was wonderful, and we got to really take our time with her. She did great, and everything went smoothly. We are going to try to go to dinner and a stupid movie to get our mind off of it. A temporary fix is good enough for now.

I am so sorry about your loss. I know what a terrific kitty Meeko was and how much you love her. It sounds as though the end was peaceful and meaningful, and I think you handled the whole thing with great compassion for Meeko.

I hope you won't feel offended that I am checking in with you for the first time at this very sad time for you. I've been reading of your journey with Meeko over the past little while, and I wanted to pass on my sympathies.

You've lost a member of your family, and you will feel a noticeable void in your heart for a long time. Try to remember the good times, and how much richer your world is for having had her in your life.

I'm sorry - I'm sounding much more "preachy" than I had intended. I really just wanted to let you know that, even though I don't know you personally, you and your husband are in my thoughts.

That's so sweet, l. mama. Thank you.

Mom, you're sweet, too, but you already know that I think so.

I plan to post more details of our experience when the grief is not so fresh. Our vet was absolutely wonderful.
