In memory of Cassie


It has been a year since our kitty Cassie was put down. We got her originally in 1996 with sister Mina. They were born on a farm from dumped cats. She was the 'beauty queen' compared to her runty sister. She had a mellow temperament and took all kinds of abuse from her jealous sister. And she took over the house after Mina.

She was my garden kitty. She loved to join me while I worked in the garden, lying in the sun and following me around. She started getting sick at the beginning of 2011. Old age was taking its toll; hyper-thyroid, bad teeth and eventually a tumor in one eye. We made her last year as good as possible but we finally had to put her down shortly after Thanksgiving. We have grieved many months for her.

Cassie - we miss you so much and you will always be in our hearts.

It is so difficult saying goodby to our beloved furry friends. You provided her with a wonderful life and bestowed upon her that final act of kindness.

Hi Marta, this is a very touching post. I'm sorry for your loss.

Thank you for sharing this very beautiful photo of Cassie in your garden.

Take care.
