Blossom

don_socalDecember 25, 2010

Blossom, was 17, developed a tumor on her chest and we let her go yesterday. She is the one we had to nurse a few years back with the saline bag hanging from the chandelier in the dinning room. We did not want to put her through the stress of so much medical stuff. I just hope when it is my time I get the same consideration if necessary.

Goodbye Blossom. If you bump into our Little Missy tell her I said hello. Thanks Steve in Baltimore County.

So sorry, Don and Missy, you did the right thing and Blossom will be met by my Pride, too numerous to mention by name.

My sympathies, Don. I know how hard it is.

I lost my 18-yr-old kitty a couple of weeks ago. I know she will be happy to show Blossom around and make her comfortable in her new existence.

I am so sorry about Blossom.
We have these wonderful spirits in our lives for too short a
time before we have to say goodbye.
Although it is hard to let go, we are the lucky ones
to have had them share our love.

((((HUGS MISSY & DON))))))

Sorry about that Don. One day I must see what being owned by a cat is like.

I'm so sorry about Blossom -- I know too well what it's like to have to say goodbye.

My Jezebel has certainly greeted her by now, along with Bosco, Butch and the others -- they will have made her feel welcome in kitty heaven.

So sorry for the loss of your beautiful Blossom, but you made a wise choice--tough for you, but best for her. She must have given you much joy over the last 17 years.

Thank you all for the kind words and thoughts. This seems to be a difficult year for us in a lot of ways. Princess did not come this morning at feeding time and she is usually the first one there. We found her hidden behind an old cabinet type sewing machine in the laundry room. She was a younger one only about 13 and had not let on that any thing was wrong. Getting a bit rough.

Beautiful photos of both kitties. I'm not sure that I understand -- is Princess ill too, or did she pass away?

She passed and we haven't a clue why. She seemed healthy but they can hide the fact that they are ailing too well.

It makes me so sad to hear you have lost Blossom. I have a tuxedo cat as well, her name is Pandora. I'm sending much sympathy to you and Missy.

Don, I don't know what to say about this loss. You certainly are being tested this holiday season. The kitty I just lost was also a tortie. I have an extra-soft spot in my heart for torties.

Soft, gentle hugs to you and your family.

Oh, no -- so sorry about Princess, Don. We had a similar thing happen with a shy house cat named Ziggy. He seemed fine, but we didn't see him all day on 9/11/01. Didn't think much of it, because he often hid. We found him the next morning, curled up in a comfy corner, and think he died in his sleep.

I wish you nothing but sunshine from now on!

Thank you my friends for your support and thoughtfulness. The other cats are showing their confusion and upset so we are giving them hugs and pets more than usual.
