I lost a part of myself today

  1. I had to put down my cat, Cleo, today
  2. She was 16 and had been fighting kidney disease for almost three years.
  3. She was my little trooper and was such a good patient. So easy to give a pill and took her 3x weekly sub q fluids like a champ
    I think most cat parents would say giving a cat a pill is one of the hardest things in the world!
  4. I got her and her sister when they were just kittens. They were a wedding present from one of my best friends. The marriage lasted six months; the girls stole my heart forever.
  5. Cleo was a silly kitty. She walked around like a linebacker, went crazy for frosting and watermelon, and sat in the cutest positions.
  6. Every morning she would wake me up by sticking her nose in my ear and breathe into it while purring. It was the cutest thing ever.
  7. I've lost pets before, childhood pets that passed away when I was in college, but my girls are my first pets as an adult and are my pride and joy.
  8. I know I did the right thing today, but it doesn't make it any easier.
  9. Rest in peace my sweet girl, I will love you for always.
