RIP Cinderella

Sorry, I have not been in the mood to blog. I had set up a bunch of posts, but I was dealing with a very sick cat and have been in tears on and off all week. I posted a few things trying to be cheerful and ignore my emotions but dealing with a sick pet is the worst. Yesterday, Halloween of all days, she got really bad. We knew she wast going to make it much longer. Her breathing had become labored and all she seemed to want was someone to hold her. We took the kids trick-or-treating anyway but came home to find that she hadn't moved at all during the 5 hours we were away. She had gotten to the point that she couldn't walk anymore.

I was awoken around 5am by my Lady Verve yowling at me. I went into my sons room and found her crying in a really quiet voice. She had somehow dragged herself under my youngest sons bed. I pulled her out and held her until 6:30am when she finally passed. Right now I am a bit heart broken. She was only a little over a year old. She passed away wrapped up in a blanket just how I used to hold her when she was a tiny little thing of a kitten.

I do have some posts I want to put up, like a giveaway and some Mani's but at the moment I just don't have the heart. Even knowing she was doomed a week ago when we found out she had lead poisoning didn't prepare me for how blah I feel right now. I promise I will be back, and maybe if I'm feeling better later today I will post the giveaway post I have saved in my drafts. At the moment I just need some time to collect myself. We still have to bury her which I fear is going to bring on more tears.

Thank for understanding. Happy Polishing!

  4. I know how it feels to lose a beautiful cat so young, my Matrixx passed away at 1 and a half years due to kidney failure.
