|My cat Serabe' died last night, in my arms from a seizure brought on by an illness she had been battling for over a month. She was three months shy of 17. My best friend, companion through many ups and downs in my life. The only solace I can get from this is she went quickly, but not before biting my hand. When she was a kitten, she bit my hand when I first met her, and I believe last night was her way of saying "goodbye mommy". She had a long happy life, she was feisty, had been ill once before in her life and was strong. It just seems so unreal, to have to put my best friend in the ground, and the pain I feel is undescribable. My other cat Oracle knows there is something going on, and is trying to console me, but it's difficult. I cannot stop crying. Serabe's pain is over, but it feels like mine has just begun.
Serabe' will be laid to rest on Saturday, from a temporary spot my mum and I tried to dig in her garden (the ground is amazingly hard around here) last night to a spot the gardeners will dig for her by the trees in the back yard. I will plant flowers for her and my Mum will read the story of the rainbow bridge and we will say our final goodbyes.
RIP darling, I know in my heart that you are in a better place now.
