Arrival Story:
It was right before the start of 5th grade for me. We were driving down the road after visiting my aunt when we saw the ever popular "free kitten" sign. We went to look and she was the only one left and had actually been returned because the husband of the other lady that took her was allergic.

She lost 3 of her lives so far. She used to be an indoor outdoor cat in her younger days and when I lived with my parents there was a carnaval that came to town and was right across the street. She dissappeared for a whole week and I thought the carnaval people took her I was just about to give up when some neighbor kids saw her in the basment of someones house in one of those little windows. She had been there for a long time, was emaciated and didnt have any water! It was horrible to see her in that shape but I was so glad to get her back. Her second life was lost when I lived with my grandparents. She was still going outside when we lived there and somehow she got into their van. It was one of those super hot days and my grandma told my grandpa to open the van windows to cool it down before they went away. When he did he found Sugar in there. She had drooled everywhere and was just laying on the ground panting. I wasnt in town during that time so I'm not sure exactly what happened after they found her but she recovered. Her next life was lost when my husband and I bought our first house. She got out one day and was gone for 3 days. I thought she got hit by a car or someone took her. But she appeared in someones fenced in yard and made it home safely. Now she might say that she lost a life with every dog I got (4) but I think she really loves them :) She still goes out but is confined to the backyard and can't really climb or jump anymore in her old age. She was my first pet that was all mine and after all these years I still have her. She did just get diagnosed with hyperthyroidism so now she gets pills twice a day. But she is doing good and I hope to have many more years with my Sugar MaMa :)

I think I'm still here in denial that my kitty of 14 years is no longer with me. I loved her so much. She was my first pet that was all my own. I had her since I was in 5th grade.

Last Saturday she stopped eating. I force fed her through Sunday and took her to the vet Monday. They re hydrated her and took blood, she ate there. They sent her home, the blood work was fine. She did not eat but she was drinking. Lethargic yet bright eyed, we kept her at peace from the dogs here in the computer room. Tuesday through Thursday still not eating. Called the vet they said to come get special food, so I did. Still nothing. Called Friday morning to schedule for X-rays. Took her in at 5pm. She had a huge tumor taking up one entire lung. After a list of things the vet said he could do to keep her alive for up to 6 months we decided it was time. By the end she was a little package of bones. I stayed with her while she slipped away into the final sleep. My husband had to leave the room before it happened or he would have lost it.

My heart now aches to give her one last nuzzle on the head as we used to do to each other. I know it needed to be done but I miss her so much. My 5 other fur babies just look at me like "what's wrong mommy". Their kisses are soothing though. I am having issues on "I should have...."'s. I should have fed her better food, I should have taken one more picture, I should have given her one more treat, I should have taken her paw print... I find a small amount of relief knowing that I took her outside for 5 minutes before we went to the vet. She loved to be in the yard, sunbathing on the deck. I laid her in the grass and told her everything was going to be okay.

She was a wonderful friend and put up with so much with all the dogs. Now I am in tears realizing shes gone. I will miss her forever.
