May 26


Today I have a sad post. This is our cat Cleo and this picture was taken a few months ago. Cleo had found a spot to enjoy the sunshine on our kitchen counter. Of course she wasn't supposed to be there, but she looked so cute sitting in the sun that our daughter Heather took her picture before making her move.
We had to put Cleo to sleep today because her kidneys were failing. She was a part of our family for over 8 years and was well loved. She will be missed.

My heart goes out to you Mari, such an awful day. I've been in this position with my dalmatian almost 5 years ago (hard to believe it was that long ago already) and I know how much it hurts. Cleo was a beauty!

Oh, I'm so sorry, Mari! That is so hard to go through. I'm glad you were putting your cats comfort ahead of your own, tho.

I'm so sorry to read this. Pets are so much a part of the family and when they are gone it's such a void.

Pets have a way of creeping into our hearts and become such a big part of the family that it's tough when they are gone. I'm very sorry for your loss.
