My LuLu kitty died :(

meredith_e Z7b, Piedmont of NC, 1000' elevationMarch 20, 2007

She was a very old girl, but such spunk :) Her kidneys couldn't keep up with her anymore. I remember seeing her little face greeting me after my first trip to Europe! A college kitty... how long could she stick around?? Too sad, though. Such a great, crazy cat! May she romp and hiss and smack her pals over the bridge now. And she can cuddle up behind Mom's knee at night, perhaps.

I am so sorry to hear LuLu is gone. During one 18 month period I lost three cats (all of my cats). I know its tough.

You can come over and pet Lola - she is a very sweet, funny girl - always in something. Black and white like a holstein cow. She is particularly adept at stealing things. Has the softest fur.

Sorry to hear about your loss, Meredith. When you have a furry friend that long, it's hard to imagine that they won't always be there. I have to smile at your image of her romping and hissing and smacking her pals on the other side. I know the type kitty she must have been. ;-) Hugs to you,

Anne

Meredith,
I'm so sorry.
Yesterday I was cleaning above the washer-dryer and found some of the medicine that the late great Snurr had during her last year. I was surprised how long ago it was, because she was such a good cat, I feel as if she lasted a lot longer than she did in years.
I expect and hope the pleasures of LuLu Kitty will remain with you.

I'm sorry. It is terrible to lose them. One must remember how wonderful it was to have them.

Thank y'all so much, every single one. I'm feeling better about it today, was very depressed yesterday, deeper than in a very long time. I want to get over the first part and jump to where I can remember her without such pain.

Her full name was Galushka - Hungarian for dumpling, lol. Dad was living in Hungary at that time. Such a long time to have her! That's a great gift, for sure.

Silly Lightnin' Bug puppy is giving me some extra-silly faces, trying desperately to cheer me up and succeeeding, too :)

Thank you so much, Michael and Orchids. Today was a beautiful spring day, and I'm trying to get in a renewal mood to match. Natural cycle and all that.
