R.I.P. Mama Cat

Mama Cat crossed the Bridge Sunday evening. It was a peaceful crossing. We think her poor tired little heart just gave up the struggle and stopped.

Mama had lived with us since Thanksgiving of 2006. We took her in and did all we could to let her know she was loved and safe. Our reward was to see her gradually become a sweet angel of a cat. She was full of purrs, head bonks and kitty kisses.

By the time her 14th birthday rolled around last October, Mama had developed a multitude of health issues. She had high blood pressure, a heart mummer, and mammary cancer. Later she developed hyperthyroidism.

One of her favorite things was to get a drink from the faucet. She would sit on the sink and stare at us until one of us went over and made her a drip.

She was self appointed guardian of the canned food stash. It was her favorite.

Another favorite was her red basket. This is one of my favorite pictures of Mama Cat. It was taken last year just before Christmas.

Mama Cat, you will always be remembered with love and laughter. Stories of your leaping ability and your antics will always be included when we tell others about our family of cats. You will live forever in our hearts until we meet you at the Bridge and cross the Veil together.

With all our love to you, farewell Mama Cat. R.I.P.

~ Mommy, Daddy, and the gang
