Pussycat's time is near

We love our furries, but sometimes they get ill. Talk about it here.

I'm sorry. :wah: It's really hard to say goodbye to an old kitty that you've loved for a long time. (((Big hugs)))

It's been a couple of days now but I'm still in bits, it's going to take a while. We both miss her so much. When it happened, the vet brought my favourite vet nurse who knew and liked PC. It was very peaceful and very quick, because she was so weak. It was obviously her time and I take some comfort in knowing that. She was just a little cat but occupied such a huge space. She's left a universe sized hole behind.

I bet she did. Give yourself time and a good howl now and then.

I will. As my Nan always said, "Better out than in". I've been crying a lot but it's better to let it all out. Sigh.

We picked up her ashes from the vets yesterday. They are so lovely there, they took us into a side room and were all "don't worry about the bill, we'll post it later" so we didn't have to hang around in the waiting room. I had thought we would bury her in my sister's garden (we don't have one) but the casket is really lovely, with her name on it, so now I'm thinking I might just keep it...

There is nothing wrong with keeping them in their little Urns. We have two because although we have a big garden, we rent and I can't bear the thought of leaving them behind if/when we move.

That's what I'm thinking too. My sister probably won't sell that house ever but she might... I don't believe in an afterlife yet I'm terribly sentimental about some things and I'm not sure I could leave Pussycat behind. The casket is a small wooden box, simple but elegant. The pet cemetery also had sleeping cat urns but I think that would've been too much.
