It has been two years since I was on this website and I have returned because my beloved Tiffany, my 16 year old and 3 months main coon cat had to be put down. She had lymphoma which is a deadly cancer that often hides itself and cannot be seen in a blood test which is what happened with my baby. She lost a lot of weight and an unusual big appetite even taking food off my plate. I took her to the vet and her blood test was fine but the vet thought she had lymphoma as this is a sign of the disease. I did not test her further and took her home and just made her comfortable till her time came last week when she stopped eating. I knew it was coming but nothing ever prepares you for the end even though I had been there before. Before I left the house to have her euthanized, I told her I loved her and she had rolled on her side and purred and flexed her paws as she has always done this since she was a kitten. I told her I loved her as she was being euthanized and that the happiest day of my life was when I brought her home. She was already gone in a few seconds. I got home and the house seemed empty even though I have 3 other fur babies that needed me. Her sweet little spirit was gone. To be honest I really wanted to go with her and be with her. It has gotten a little better but a couple days ago I could not get out of bed and my other cat Ronnie kept licking my face as if to revive me as Ronnie is very maternal. I still cry from time to time as I have today. Today I wrote a prayer for Tiffany in her words if she could speak. I am donating some of her things to the rescue so other new lives can benefit. It helped me heal a bit so I encourage anyone reading this who just lost a loved pet to do this. You don't have to adopt another one just yet but you will find some consolation in doing what I did. I am helping a woman find a home for a kitten and giving her numbers of no kill shelters. Anyway here is the prayer I wrote for my girl Tiffany
Dear God My name is Tiffany. My friends call me Tiff. About me, you can call me a girly girl as I am a bit prissy but I have a good heart. I don’t know quite where I am yet. I think I am in heaven but not sure. All I know is my stomach doesn’t hurt anymore and I feel young again. Also Romeo is here and another furry dude named Rusty and a lot of other people who I don’t know who know me. Everybody is fighting to hold me. Of course I like the attention. I am a born flirt. And guess what I have wings can you believe that. It is so pretty here and people sing all the time. I can still pester Romeo but it’s okay now. I remember my Mom gave me a pink bed with the name Princess on it. Romeo was jealous and peed in it. Oh well you know how he is. Anyway the last thing I remember is my Mom crying and saying she loved me and then everything went dark. Then all of a sudden there was a bright light and I followed it to this place where a bunch of people and furry friends greeted me. I felt safe. So please tell my Mom that I love her and not to worry. She worries way too much. I am okay, honest. We will all be together one day but not right now. Tell her when it’s her time, Romeo and I will meet her at Rainbow Bridge and we can all cross over together. Until then keep her safe. Anyway gotta run, Romeo wants me to check out this new field of pretty flowers. See ya, Tiffany

What a wonderful sweet story to God. I am still broken up having said good bye to my Ginger last Sunday. I still every day I miss her so much. I hope Tiff finds her and befriends her. Ginger was such a sweet girl who never harmed a soul.
I hope you find Peace.
