RIP Precious

There really isn't a whole lot I can say about this. She's been sick. Her body was falling apart. She lost all ability to walk on her own. She could barely lift her head without shaking.
We couldn't let her live in pain anymore.

We rescued her when she was almost three years old.
She'd been abused by her previous owners and it showed.
But we were patient with her and showed her that we wouldn't hurt her and eventually she learned to trust us.
She had the most wonderful personality.
She loved to go on really long walks.
Never once did she hurt another animal.
She slept next to my bed every night.
And would lay her head in my lap every chance she got.

She was my best friend, my confidante, the love of my life.
She's been there for me for the past ten years.
I shared exactly half my life with her.
Now I'm having a hard time believing she's gone.
I miss her more than words can explain.

"Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened."
-Anatole France

Rest in peace my beautiful baby, you wonderful soul.


  1. This post made me choke up a little ;______; I'm sorry for your loss babe.

  2. I'm so sorry for the loss of your friend. I love that quote.... sums it up. A lot of people don't understand that, until they experience it.

    Be at peace knowing she is pain free and happily running and eating all the doggie treats she wants. :)

  3. I'm so sorry -- this is horrible. I will pray very hard for you and your family and I hope Precious has a wonderful time in heaven.

  4. Godspeed Precious, Godspeed!
    We'll see you on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge!

    Hugs to you Valorie. I am so very sorry for the loss of your angel with fur.


Commenting? How lovely. Please try not to talk about dead cats.
