Cathy


I am very sad to report that we lost Cathy this morning.

Thank you so much for all the love and prayers and positive energy. I have passed them on to James and his family. You are a generous and wonderful bunch and I am so honored to 'know' you!

I have visions of Cathy playing with (i.e. trying to kick the crap out of - she was a feisty one!) Vito in the land of no-pain and where snow is a fun thing, not something that prevents you from getting where you need to go when you really need to get there.

No one knew that Cathy had a tumor, she was (or seemed) completely normal, healthy and Cathy-like up until the moment she wasn't. (Oh! Update 939am, I just found out the vet's final word was that Cathy did NOT have a tumor - but that she had some kind of extremely fast-growing bacterial infection...as to what caused that, I guess we will never know...she was totally normal one minute, and extremely sick the next. Sigh...life...)

Rest in peace, sweet Cathy. Your daddy is heartbroken and so are the rest of us.

We're so very sorry to hear about poor Cathy. It does seem that they are fine one minute and very ill the next. I wish they didn't mask their pain so well. Purrs and hugs to everyone who loved her. We meant to say last night what a beautiful girl she was!!

We are so very sorry to read this. Mother Nature sure can be a bitch and cause trouble when she wants to.

At least Cathy is no longer in pain and got some medical care before she passed. We are sure her family was with her, and that made it an easier passing for her.

We too will picture her playing with Vito. We bet they are discussing their humans and Piggy as we type this.

We are sending all of you purrs and hugs in this time of sorrow.

melissa said...

oh wow ali. so much in so little time. please tell james and family we are praying for him. and i am glad so many people who know and love you at least tried to help. there have been many deaths this holiday season it seems. but as long as we know they are better off, out of pain, maybe we can look to it as something akin to comfort. thank you for your brave words and the love you send to all of us...i hope the new year brings you many new surprises and joys. and tell grover and the pig that we are so happy they seem well. big love.

I am so so sorry to learn of your beloved little girl, Cathy. She knew you loved her deeply and there is no doubt but that she returned that love back to you both.

Cathy, I hope you can meet my Robin and my Hopping John when you look around at the Bridge. They'll love you, sweet one.
