Rest in peace, sweet baby (1989-2010)
My 6-lb, indoor kitty, Yiker. She was my fur-baby before my engagement, and was with us after our wedding and the birth of two babies, who were 12 and 10 when she passed. Although she rarely went outside, on 12/3 I had the back door open (great weather) and she slipped outside; went missing for over 6 hours. Finally found her across the creek she'd never been near before, wet & shivering; she wanted to die alone and away. I wrapped her in a towel, brought her home, and held her most of the night. She waited 'til I left the next morning to p/u kids @ church; when we got home, she'd passed.
