This morning we received a call from Aunt Gayle that it was time. The kitties we always watch have been together for 15 years and Lu had cancer. This morning she was dying. Painfully.
My wonderful hubby and I dropped everything and ran around the corner. Tommy took her to Nichols Hills Veterinary and I kept Aunt Gayle busy at home. Tommy held her and they hooked her up to an i.v. and he was with her when she took her last breath. The staff was so kind and compassionate and for that I am grateful.
Neither Gayle or I could have done that. We’ve lost too much, too quickly. But Tommy did. He cried all the way there and we’ve all been a bit weepy especially since we are allergic to cats!
So, to my Daddy in Heaven….I’m sending you and Mr. Louis a new friend. Her name is Lu and I know y’all will take care of her.
Poor Smokey, her cat husband, was so subdued and sad all day. Tomorrow will be soon enough for us to remove all of her things and wash all the bedding, as Aunt Gayle flys to Washington tomorrow to watch one of the nieces’ graduate.
That’s all I’ve got today. It’s a sad day.
