Leaving in pairs

Last week I had 6 more cats, but Twilight (age 14) and
Pachouli (age 10) decided to pass on from kidney failure
within 48 hours of each other. Their kidney damage
stemmed from eating aflotoxic-tainted cat food almost
9 years ago. They put up a good fight, but it was time
to let go. Isn't it strange how cats will choose to go
together? I miss them terribly, but I'm glad their deep
friendship will continue on. At least their struggles are over.

We miss you, sweet girls. May you be strong and whole
and beautiful once more at The Bridge

Twilight
Pachouli

Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.
And never regret anything that made you smile.

They were inseparable. I'm glad they're still together,
even though we've double the emptiness here.

I'm so sorry about Twilight and Pachouli. It seems that they wanted to be together so that their friendship would continue, but how difficult it must be for you to lose two kitties in such a short time.

I had that happen last fall. 10 weeks apart. First Blues to kidney failure, then 10 weeks later Rhythm to a neurological problem.

I still am deeply distraut at many levels...

I am soo soo sorry.

I had thought something similar about Rhythm and Blues. Blues was 14, Rhythm (or Tux since she was a tuxedo cat) was at least 12 (humane society cat).

I'm so sorry. They are whole and healthy now and playing together & with their friends at rainbow bridge until you arrive.

I just know this will happen to me eventually since I've got sibling groups. They're all so close with their sibs.

You know we are often told how lucky these furrbabies are to have us. And that is true.

But I think we are the lucky ones to have them They are such and incredible blessing of love.

Firstly sympathies.

I worry about the same thing - four of mine aren't very different in age - I know that doesn't always make a huge difference but it worries me.
