Random thoughts and scenes from my life - past, present and future - and the most important things to me: my family, my friends and my love of crochet!

Our cat Shadow passed away on Friday. In April she was diagnosed with mammary cancer. The vet operated and removed the tumor but informed us that the cancer had already invaded the lymph nodes. We chose to put her on pain meds and to keep her comfortable for the rest of her time with us. We expected 6-9 months, but we came home from work on Friday to find she had left us earlier than we had thought.
We will miss her terribly. She was a sweet and gentle cat, always purring. Even at the vet's office for her checkup - she would purr loudly. Our vet only met her in April, but she fell in love with her.
RIP, Shadow. We will meet again. I sincerely believe that there must be a heaven for pets. They love so unconditionally that God must certainly take care of them when we no longer can.
