So Long, Farewell......

We loved you so.

I took our girl to the vet this afternoon...our long time vet of 20 years.
He said...average age of cat is 14 years...Pumpkin was 100 in human years.
Old age, renal failure, advanced thyroid disease, dementia and if he looked, 
He thought he could find more...OMG
She was 7 pounds of love...in agony...
Goodbye Pumpkin..an awesome quilt  lover and dear friend.
Strange but true...Zoe, the black lab used to have great fun chasing the cats.
In the last two weeks, Zoe has hovered near Pumpkin.
Zoe knew, when we did not.
Goodbye good cat..

I am sorry, but what beautiful pictures you have of her. It was about a year ago we said goodbye to our 16 year old dog. Our pets can be such good friends.

So sorry - it's a loss - so hard to say goodbye to a beloved pet. I love the name pumpkin - and what nice cat/quilt photos you have of her.

Goodbye Pumpkin. !00 years in a quilty home is a good life. You've got beautiful photos and a heart full of memories.

I'm so sorry for your kitty loss. All quilters need calicoes. She looked so pretty on all your quilts & blocks.
I would say run out & get a kitten, but unlike me, a childless cat-lady, your home is filled with exuberant youth.
Take care.
