A Death in the Family...

I just went downstairs and found our cat, Misty. She was 20 years old so she had a very long life for a cat. She hasn't been doing very well lately and I knew it was coming, but it was still a shock to find her. I'm a bit of a basket case right now since I'm home alone to deal with it, and I don't know how I'm going to tell my kids. My daughter has been especially loving with her for the past year or so and I know she's going to take it hard. Luckily I think it will make her feel better that Misty HAS been having some sickness lately so it will help her to know that she is no longer in pain. Taking a day of mourning for a loved pet...

Aw, I'm sorry to hear this, Melinda. No matter how prepared we think we are, it's still hard to lose a pet.

It is always so sad to loose our furry friends. Surely Misty was treasured as her 20 plus years can attest. We lost our 22 yr old cat 10 yrs ago and I still miss him. Hugs!
