Arrival Story: We adopted her from a shelter. She had been there 5 months because noone would take a chance with her because of her respiratory infection. We went back and forth on whether we should take her for a month or so. There was a special connection from the first day we met her.
Her previous owners had not given her a name. So the shelter named her Dice for the black dot on her nose.
In the short time that we came to love her, we found that she had more than just a respiratory infection. That was a sympton of lymphoma which was actually a tumor behind her eye. Upon her becoming blind, we realized that we needed to do what was best for her. On October 21, 2008, we let our little sweet girl go to the Rainbow Bridge. We will never forget her. We are so happy and priviledged to have had her in our lives.
Bio: Through her struggles to get well, she was the sweetest kitty. Purrs and head butts were her way of letting us know she appreciated what we were doing for her. She loved sitting on our deck in the sunshine and sleeping on our bed.
It was one year ago today that Mommy and Daddy said good-bye to me and let me go to the Bridge after only being together for a short time.
I know they felt very badly that I couldn't pull through and have the
life that I was meant to enjoy.
It is a reminder that not all goes as planned and that we should
enjoy and cherish each moment that we have together whether it be human companionship or the special times and bonds we share with our furramily members.
