After the having some health issues for the last few months, my dear friend Spooky really started to go downhill the last 2 wks. Mr. Lynnie & I decided that she had suffered enough today......just a few weeks shy of her 17th birthday.
She and I were together almost literally half of my life and though we had a rough start, she became a truly great friend, companion, comic relief and 'watch kitty'. I came to depend on her....and she of me.
She waited for me every single day when I came home from work. She slept w/me. She always head butted me when I put food out for her. She was so spoiled that at one point, she refused to eat unless someone pet her while she ate. Until the kids came along........
She was a birthday present from my brother and his wife. They came to my apartment holding a Christmas stocking. Out popped her head! She was so cute! Though we (my roommate & I) weren't allowed to have pets,how could I say no??? I just couldn't.
And I couldn't allow her to suffer now. My little old friend. She was not loved by everyone, but she certainly was by me.
I know she is chasing wadded up pieces of paper right now!!
She was cool.....just had to tell you guys.
I am destroyed.
