Default sorry it's Sad

So sorry to come back on a sad note~~ but Time has caught up with my Tiny
Anti-Christ she is now 18yrs to old to remove her eye which will bust out in
short time ,,,so the best I will get the Vet to come to my House to put her to
Sleep will her loved things around her
You may remember where she chased these four Thugs around our Garage
one had stolen Oranges and they were all over the floor
I will put the Poem that was written for her by Gyle on her cross

Bats, I honestly DO understand. About 18 months ago, we had to have our Spinagar put to sleep. He had developed mouth and throat cancer. He's waiting at the 'Rainbow Bridge' for us. Take care. MH57

Thank-You all it was sad time the Vet came to House so quick just had time to
say Good-Bye I did think ''She be OK ,,but Animals let you know when it's time
and it was
Had to get Rikki-Tikki away as he wouldn't let the Vet near her wasn't it nice for
the Vet to come to the House

Dearest Bats -
I, too understand about your loss. Much sympathy to you! Our 16-yr. old cat died about 4 days ago, at home, too. But without a vet. I know you will find comfort in remembering Tiny's feisty ways. Memories are good. Much hugs {{{Bats}}}

My sympathies, Bats and CrochetLady. It's been a bad year for elderly cats - our nearly 17 yr old tabby Cedric had to be put down at the beginning of the summer.

I hear you, had cats 'pawing me and I've lost a freind', but her two cats, have found homes, she was in her 80's and it took me some time to understand who she was.

We feel for you
