My dearest Sally Cat,
Today marks 4 years since you made your sudden and unexpected journey to the bridge. It was the worst day of my life, I've never experienced fear, trauma, and heartbreak like I did on the day I said good-bye to you. The grief was nearly unbearable and brought me to my knees. You seemed fine and healthy that morning. I remember waking up and finding you cuddled on the pillow next to me. I stayed in bed for awhile and loved on you. A true blessing on our last morning together, I just didn't know it at the time. Maybe you did?
When you got sick and I got you to the ER hospital, I knew you were dying. I kept saying to the ER vet, "But she was fine this morning. She was fine this morning." I made decisions for you that day, on your behalf, even though it was the hardest thing I'd ever done. But I would have done anything for you and I know that you know that I didn't want you to suffer and it was my love for you and your love and trust in me that guided me.
You were so sweet and so smart and so beautiful. So strong and courageous. I didn't know that your heart was so sick. Looking back, there were subtle signs that I missed. I beat myself up about that for a long time. Now I wonder if it was better that I didn't know? There was no cure, no way to fix your heart and make it healthy. By not knowing, we had up until your last morning together without fear, without knowing of what was coming. Love and normalcy and routine.
I miss you so much, Sally. I close my eyes and picture you and Sophie together, you are with family again and I find some comfort in that. I miss you both so much. It's hard for me to go to your Catster page, to see your photos and the few brief videos I have. It's hard for me to think of you because my heart is still broken. But I would never have traded a single moment with you, I was so lucky to have you with me for 9 years and 10 months. I love you, baby girl. Please give Sophie whisker kisses and a love tap with your paw for me. And take care of each other.

I'm sorry to see that it is already Sally Sweet Angel's bridge anniversary.
We kitties are lucky to have time with our families but when our families take us home, I guess they know we won't be with them their entire lives. Then they are sad when we leave but we are waiting for them, and we try to touch them in some way again, back home.
We hope Sally is reaching out to you sometimes. She was with you a short time but I'm sure it was a great time.
Love Serena xo
Our furmily is sending you hugs!
Sending you love and purrs my friend.
