Letting go of a fur baby is hard.
I had to let go of my cat… Smokey… last September and didn’t expect all the emotions that flooded me when I had to say goodbye.
Today… I want to pay tribute to my sweet girl… Sandy.
Her stomach suddenly flipped or twisted last Friday evening… ugh.
Just like in the movie ‘Marley and Me’.
I had an option to do surgery but she was too old and I knew the recovery would just be too much on her. She had a couple of other health issues as well… so I knew it would just be too hard on her.
I found her as a stray in our downtown area at the library I once worked at about 14 years ago. I was single and she was the perfect fit for me. the Lord knew I needed her and she has been with me ever since.
She brought me MUCH joy all these years!
We just have Neeko… you may have seen him in a photo or two on here.
Let’s see… Sandy was my shadow, Neeko was her shadow and Smokey was everyone’s shadow…lol.
He is very much a pack dog… very family, people oriented and I know he is missing his sister. He actually went and laid next to where we put her the other day… so sweet and sad at the same time.
I bought him a new “baby” this week! He seems to really like it and is taking good care of it. I may go buy him some more babies. He’s gotta good collection but a new baby is always fun for him.
I sure do love my fur babies…
I tell ya… the hardest part is that
I find myself missing our daily routine together…
our fur babies depend on us for everything.
Taking care of her was such a blessing for me…especially since I don’t have any children.
I surely do miss my sweet, sweet Sandy.
She was a wonderful companion!
