Mom's feeling sad (and guilty) tonight

Today Mom got a call from Amy, who has been our cat sitter for many years. A few months ago a friend of Mom's asked for a recommendation for a pet sitter, and Mom was happy to recommend Amy. Amy went to visit the friend yesterday ahead of their trip, and from her learned that one of our family had made their journey to the Bridge.

How could Mom have forgotten to call Amy and tell her about my journey?! Amy is a special friend to all of us!

Anyway, Mom told Amy all about my lymphoma, and my chemotherapy, and the sad decision that Mom and Dad made that it was time to let me go. And they cried together a little bit, and then laughed together as they remembered my funny habits and sweet personality.

The humans haven't taken a trip away for quite a while, first because of my illness and then because Dad lost his job, but they may go away next year for a week. And of course Amy will come to take care of my sibs. I'll be sure to be there in spirit!

Awww sweetie, tell your momma not to feel bad. There's always so much to think about and frankly that was so traumatic for them. I'm sure Amy understood that, she sounds very nice.

Tell your mom not to feel sad or guilty. She had alot on her mind and the time, and there is alot to think of when things happen and a kitty flies across the Bridge.

We know yo're a wonderul angel kitty and you look after your mom and Amy!
