Goodbye, my friend

This weekend we will spend saying goodbye to my sweet baby.

As much as it is breaking my heart, it is time. She is having a tough time more than not. She is truly the sweetest animal I have ever known. I will miss her hugs (yes, she really does hug), her head butts in the middle of the night, her stinky kisses and her fur all over me. I will miss the way, when she snuggles up with you, how she puts her little paw on your cheek. I will miss her following us around, crying, wanting to be picked up. I love her so very much and because of that, I don't want her to suffer.

I apologize for no blogging, unanswered emails and a few packages I need to get out. Work has been crazy, home just as busy as ever and worrying about my Olive every day.

Goodbye my dear, sweet, furry baby. I love you.

    I cannot tell you how sorry I am! What a sad decision to have to make. Ms Olive is so lucky to be so clearly adored and loved and thought of and her interests served.

    I'll be thinking of you all this weekend.

    I am so sorry to hear that. Please take care of yourself. It's hard losing someone so close to you. It takes a lot of courage and shows how much you love your cat to make the decision you make.

    I surfed here from knitting blogs. I'm so sorry about your cat. I still remember the day our family cat died over ten years ago. Your Olive certainly is a pretty cat.

    Oh, Heather - I know it's a difficult and heartbreaking choice. It doesn't seem like it today, but in time it will get a little easier to have said goodbye. Olive will always be with you...when you least expect it you'll turn your head and out of the corner of your eye, her spirit will be there for just an instant, letting you know she'll always love you, too. My thoughts are with you and your family this weekend...

    Heather - you, Olive and the family are in my thoughts. You had to make such a difficult decision for someone you love. Olive is very lucky to have owned such great humans. Take care of yourself.
