|It was Austin's time to leave you. No matter if you had found him sooner it would not necessarily change the outcome. We all feel guilty when a furchild passes. Maybe we should have done this ... or done that ... or not done this ... you can ask yourself these questions forever and never be satisfied with an answer. Although Austin's leaving you was so sudden and very hard on you, be content that it wasn't a long, drawn out illness of suffering and pain. You both enjoyed your time together right up to the last day. Now he is free of all illness and is watching over you until you meet again at the Bridge.
When I passed, our veterinarian told Mom a comforting thing. It didn't make the pain in her heart any less, but it did give her a sense of peace. Dr. Steve told Mom that if she hadn't rescued me when I was 5 weeks old, with my bad heart I wouldn't have made it to my first year. With her kindness, care and love, we enjoyed each other for the 10 years I was with her on this earth.
Be at peace knowing that YOUR kindness, care and love extended Austin's life right up to the day you had to part ... and believe that parting is only temporary. You WILL be together again at the Bridge.
Purrs and PEACE,
