My sweet Meg passed away yesterday and I was absolutely distraught. The feeding tube didn't work and she just got sicker and sicker over the weekend. It was heart-breaking to hear her cry out and by yesterday morning, she couldn't even sit up. I knew it was time to let her go and I cried and cried until the vet opened. It was one of the hardest decisions I ever had to make yesterday, but I know she is no longer suffering and can be in peace now. Husband took off the day with me and buried her under the St. Francis in our garden. We planted catnip over her and put some sweet decorations around it. I cried on and off all day long and the house seems so empty without her. I've had her since she was just a couple weeks old and she passed away at 15 1/2. Most of my life I've spent with her at my side and it will be tough to learn to cope without her. Thanks to everyone for your prayers and your calls/texts/messages yesterday. I really appreciate it! I found some good pictures to put on here to help you see how much joy she brought. Unfortunately, I don't have any of her when she was younger because those were the days before digital cameras and camera phones! Hope you enjoy!
Loving and learning a little more each day.
