I know, I'm a grown woman, I shouldn't be so upset about my cat dying. But I've had my darling since I was 10 years old, she's been a major part of my life for 15 years! I begged and begged and begged my parents to get me a cat, for YEARS I begged them. When they finally caved in shortly after my sister was born, they even let me name her.
I named her Jellybean. I saw the name in a magazine and I thought it was just the cutest thing ever.
And play Monopoly.
And become very protective of hangers.
The funniest thing she did was lick laundry baskets. It always cracked me up, she would just lick and lick and lick!
She slept/sat in a lot of weird places and positions.
She was always very tolerant of the hilarious things we would do to her.
This one is just because she looks like a crazy, evil plotting psycho kitty here.
*Sigh* I miss her so much. I loved her more than I love most people, I'm just a crazy cat lady. Putting her down was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. (Even though I didn't actually put her down...) But it was just cruel to keep her alive, the poor darling was suffering so much I couldn't even bear to think about her living like that for one more minute.
As a gigantic cat lover and someone who doesn't yet have kids of her own, losing my 15 year old cat was just devastating for me. But, I've been reassured that I will see my beloved kitty again, and she's happily prancing around chasing lasers like she hasn't been able to for years.
What about you? Have you ever lost a pet? Do you believe in a pet heaven? Got any fun pet memorial crafts?
