Requiescat In Pacem: Raptor

Raptor was my elder cat, and I had her put down on Sunday because she was deteriorating so quickly.

Rest in peace, old friend. I shall miss you.

Diane--I deeply sympathize.

I've said before, our furry companions leave us with one final gift after lives of giving: they give us the reason to unashamedly weep.

Peace...but after a good cry...

I know how you feel, Diane. My cat companion of 21 years had to be put down when he was too ill to be treated.

I haven't been able to adopt another cat since.

I still miss that cat. He was so special.

As I'm sure your Raptor was.

Oh, how I love the cats and dogs that share our lives. At the end, they usually depend on us for help to leave the world, and much of the time, we're unsure about when that exact moment is, so it's hard. Mostly I think we know afterwards, for sure, that our critter understood and maybe asked us, and loved us as we said good-bye. They have beautiful little souls.

Thanks to all of you for the good wishes and the condolences. As I've said many times, one of the loveliest things about human beings is that they are capable of forming relationships with animals, at least the good kind of humans can.

Diane... my friend...

I just became aware.

And our total heartfelt wishes for your heart.

So sorry. Raptor will meet my mom's old cat who turned into an angel cat yesterday. He was 17.
