Pooped

I'm exhausted.

It seems like I have been wetting my pillow for over a week. Her quick decline took us both by surprise. She was really sick.

We have been crying since she first got sick. We've been sobbing since her passing on Sunday. Our Diana was 15 1/2 years old. She was an old old cat.

Diana and Fergie came to us from a farm near Smith's Creek. We often joked about how we saved them from becoming flat frozen barn cats. You know -- those poor kitties that sleep next to sleeping cows in winter. Farmers sometimes haven't time to bury the cats that don't move quickly enough when a cow shifts in her sleep. So, over the back fence they go until later....

Ferggs and Di were sisters/litter mates. They were delightful kittens. We fretted when Fergie wouldn't eat and we had to bottle feed her for a time. Both kittens grew to be beautiful loving cats.

Di Baby was special. Unique. Loved.

Loved.

OMG!!! I am so sorry that you are having to go through this at Christmas time :( I so understand how hard it is to loose a pet (member of the family)
I'll toss up an extra prayer for you and Billy, hopefully you'll stop cryin soon. Some days I still cry about/for Dog, we had him since he was 5 weeks old and we had to put him to sleep in Oct...he was almost 15 :(
Take care
