Thank you, Miko's Mom... I am just seeing this response now! ((( ♥ )))
It has been almost 3 months now since I said goodbye to Zoe, and I still cry when I think of her. She's becoming a memory and I think that hurts more than anything. I cherish the memories, but they pale in comparison to my sweet baby girl. I do tell myself often that I did the right thing for her, and when I look at the pictures of those last couple of weeks, it is so obvious how much pain she was in. I am truly thankful that the very last video I ever took of her was right before we left for the vet... she was in my lap and I was petting her, crying as she purred and kept looking up at me with those beautiful love filled eyes that I miss so much. I knew that was going to be the last moment we had together that was truly "us", because as soon as I took her to the vet I knew I would have to be strong for her, because she would be scared. And she was, but in the end, all there was, was peace.
For anyone reading this, know that it is OK to grieve, and to grieve hard. These little Lights are precious gifts. I am truly honored to have experienced a bond like this, and I hope that it is not the last. In fact, I will be spending Saturday meeting with rescue kitties, in hopes that one will be meant to come home with me. ♥
