With A Broken Heart

It is with a broken heart I tell you our Sadie kitty has passed away.
We got up early and watched the sun rise together as she sat in my lap.
It has been two months since her diagnosis with cancer in her nose,
She had failed so much and we had to make the horrid decision
since we could no longer keep her comfortable, We did what we thought she would want and what was right.
She was 20 years old and she has lived life her way. She adopted
us and from that point on decided that she would be the protector of us and keeper
of the house. We love her with all our hearts. Before she came into our lives we
would have told you we were not cat people she changed all that.
We will never forget her and are so very thankful she chose us.
She has left a very large hole in our hearts.

I'm so sorry for your loss and she will be missed by your family but you did the most humane thing. Yet I know it doesn't take the pain away. I still miss my Shadow girl and it has been over two years now. But sure do have a lot of fond memories of her too, as I'm sure you have of Sadie.

Oh my I am heartbroken for you. I am so very sorry honey to read this about Sadie.
Isn't it something how much joy and love they bring into our lives.
You will miss her but what a wonderful life she had in your lovely home.
I know what you mean I too was not a cat person until 8 years ago when Tinkerbell entered my life and now I love her dearly.
Know that I am thinking about you
and wish I could give you a big hug.
I have not been blogging because my computer is worn out and sometime in near future I have to break down an buy me one.
Love ya
Maggie
