  4. Poor Katie! I hope the kids took it well and aren't too sad about it. It's hard explaining death to the young ones. But Katie was loved and you gave her a wonderful home so I am sure she will have fond memories of you in Kitty heaven :)

    1. Lucky for the girls, she was always closest to my husband. They're sad, but not as sad as they might have been if it had been one of the other cats. We warned them this day was coming, and they had some time to pet her and kiss her last night and this morning.

    1. It is. My husband was beating himself up for not taking her in sooner, but he's had her for 17 years. It was very hard for him, even when she started yowling in pain Sunday night. :(

    1. This is the first difficult pet loss in a while. My husband wandered into the bedroom the other night, and reached down to pet his Katie - then he realized, it was hit hat. Then, he remembered. We have 3 more kitty girls to love. One is old but in great shape, the other two are young whippersnappers. Thanks, Robyn. xoxoxo
