The Last "Word"

I had to say goodbye to my baby kitty, Logan, today. As painful as it was to let her go I am sure she is free if pain. She would have been 20 this summer. The last cat I had lived to be 19. My vet says it must be something in the water over here! :)
Logan was a little poof of fur when she found me! She was covered in fleas and I couldn't give her meds because she was too little. I just picked and prayed she wouldn't infest my house and other felines! My other cat was less than thrilled with the new
addition but tolerated her for many years! ( Too tired to do the math:) I think back on all the things that have happened the last twenty years and how much support and love that little fuzzball gave me without saying a word. I think there is a lot we can
learn from our furry family members. She has taught me tons and I am going to miss her beyond belief. I am OK and I am happy she didn't have to suffer. I just happen to read Mother Ann's blog last night about her Missy!

first time DH ever had to go thru making the actual decision. He was a real trooper and had me laughing while I am sitting on the floor holding my cat waiting for the inevitable. That's pretty good! He has created a "Logan" voice so she will be with me
for a long time, along with all the fur she had shed this spring!
All I can ask is when you know it is time DON'T wait. She may have held on a couple more days or even weeks, but it would have hurt just as much as it did today.
Oh, and Logan got the last word..... She hissed at the vet~She still had a little fight in her! :)
