A Tear Stained Letter: R.I.P. Lois
We had to put our cat to sleep. She was my friend and family member for 17 years. She was with me through ups and downs and lived every bit of her 9 lives. I brought her home at 2 weeks old and she stayed very much that kitten throughout her life. I met her when I was in college-- at the pet store I went to give her back to the store clerk and she wouldn't let got of my shirt. "I guess I'll take her," I said.
Anyone that knows us knows how much we loved Lois. She was our joy and we pampered her like you wouldn't believe. A reader of this blog probably saw plenty of pictures of our kitty.
We treated her for kidney disease for well over a year and it was a very difficult year. Despite knowing the end was near, we still couldn't believe it when the moment came.
