Oh my goodness, Spirite... I am balling my eyes out reading this. I so wish you could've been there with Margaux as she passed so you didn't feel any guilt. PLEASE, please don't beat yourself up. Margaux passed away peacefully, in the comfort of her home that she so adored... with nothing but happy memories of you. I have no doubt she knew how much she was adored.
Please understand that most cats leave to die if they can... they don't want to be near their people... they usually want to be alone. Margaux probably knew it was time, and chose to let go when you weren't home.
I'm not going to lie, I am sitting here sobbing for you because I know the awful pain and the feelings of guilt. I just hope you know that Margaux knew how much you loved her, and she was able to pass away peacefully in her home... the way she, and any pet would want. Her body may have passed on when you got home, but there's no doubt in my mind that her spirit was present as you pet her and kiss her head.
Margaux is peaceful, playful, happy, healthy, and has her sight on the Rainbow Bridge. A huge virtual hug is coming from me right now... I am sending you so many positive thoughts, Spirite. You are such an incredible cat parent, and Margaux was so lucky to be able to live an incredible life with you, and end it on her own terms in the comfort of her home. Rest in peace, beautiful Margaux...
