Rockin' With Riley

One Last Night

I'm not feeling much like rockin' any more.
I can barely walk, and have no interest in food or water. I saw the vet this afternoon, momma carried me like a baby, wrapped in a blanket. My vet said it was time. She left daddy and mom alone with me. There was a lady crying in the next room. She was saying goodbye to her cat too.
There is too much damage to my organs from the infection. I am not responding to the medicines. I just feel tired. I won't open my eyes.
The vet saw that my parents weren't ready to say goodbye. She said we could come back in the morning, so I could have one more night at home with my family. Mom and Dad will both sleep in the office with me. I think I've run out of miracles this time.
Please purr for my peaceful crossing.

With much love,
