Greta's mama here:
I am so appreciative and thankful for everything you've said, sent, and done for my sweet Greta. I am just so sad, I feel like my heart will never heal....I'm also kinda upset with myself because I should have known something was wrong when I petted Greta so many times over this last week and just felt every bone in her body...I thought oh it's probably because she's getting old (she was 12) and this is just part of her getting older. But then she got so she wouldn't eat, wouldn't play....she did get on the bed and sleep with me sometimes... in the past few months she started sleeping next to my pillow, something she NEVER did until then...and it made me so happy to be pet her soft velvety coat...I miss her kneading on my hair to get me up and feed her (LOL)....she didn't do that for the last few days and I thought nothing of it til today...I miss being able to pick her up and cuddle her, altho I held her as long as I could until it was time for her to be put down.....I will miss hearing her talk back to me when I talked to her and hearing her say "ihh!"
I wanted her to know that I loved (AND STILL LOVE) her so very much....that my heart will always have a little hole where she filled it....she always loved to be held, even in her last days she just LOVED it...she purred even tho it was weak purrs...that was a sign to me that she was dying...then this morning when I tried to hand feed her and she attempted to bite my finger I knew that was her way of saying to put her to sleep....she was just SO weak and thin, she just barely walked around, didn't jump or run like usual....that was also a sign something was wrong...
I also tried cooling her down with some cool water in the event she was just affected by the heat...but it was just not meant to be...now I have to go to work tomorrow (Thursday) and everyone tries to fool me into thinking it will help...trust me it WON'T....when I had to put Buster to sleep I had to go work the next day and all I could do was think and talk about him....going to work will NOT take my mind off my sweet precious little black kitty.....
I will tell you this....IF and I mean ***IF*** it is the Lord's will, I would like to adopt another black kitty...but it's not up to me....just like I did before getting Daniel & Solomon, I have to pray as to whether or not God wants me to have a 3rd cat....I hope you can all understand that.....for now I have to close because I just can't stop crying. I miss you Greta.

Oh Mommy I cried with you through this whole diary, been there before & still feel the sadness & missing my gurls in kitty heavens.
You did what so many of us have to do & yes, they tell or let us know when it's the right time; most times I should say!
If another black or what ever colour kitty should come your way, then it'll feel right.
Give yourself time to gain your strength, cry as much as you need to then, one day at a time you'll be able to heal & be stronger once again!
I remember my first girl hissed at me & oh, I felt so awful I did not know that they sometimes do that. She too was telling me I need to go to a furry speshill place.
Greta was a most bootiful graceful lady cat we will always love & miss her 4 - eva.
Please let Solomon & Daniel help you with their love from your precious loss, & they too need you!
You were & are the bestest Mommykatt your kitties had & ever have known!
I've miss you all so much since you last wrote about your Mom & Susie the Cat & her furbabies.
I will pray for all of you & all our wunnaful furriends heyah, kitties & their families both furrs & humans!
Love is 4 - eva!

Roll ova link purrleeze!
Love is always 4 - eva!
We know how hard this is on you and we all understand...Mom cried reading your diary because we know how it feels to loose a beloved sweet precious kitty....don't beat yourself up, I think sometimes we have to take what happened and learn from it so when something like this happens again you will know that something is not right....after all we are only human...
Greta knows you loved her and she will always be with you in your heart. As for others that don't understand the love we all have for our kitties that is their lose....so please know we are all here for you.
One day your Greta will give you the sign that there is a kitty waiting for you to bring it home...till then take your time to mourn and heal...meows heal the heart!
Our deepest sympathy to you!
QT sends butterflies from heaven
hugs for all of us
