Today would have been Lily’s 12th birthday. We lost her a year ago next month to chronic kidney disease. She was diagnosed when she was a kitten and under treatment all her life. She had two setbacks during that time and we were able to return her to health. The third time she fell into crisis mode and there was no recovery.
Even though we have the adorable, fun Olivia and even though Sophie, at the age of 16 and a half, is still healthy and a quite the charmer, I miss Lily every single day. But then most of you know what I’m saying. You never forget and you never quite heal from those cats that brought so much love and joy into your life. All cats are special. Some of them shine brighter. I miss you, Lily. Thank you for sending us Olivia.
