RIP little angel Katey


« on: November 16, 2011, 01:37:24 PM »

My grand 'ol girl has gone to the bridge today. 22 years, six months and 16 days. She was well up until today at lunch time when she just didn't have the energy to get up and greet me. She didn't want any food and she hadn't wanted any more Pepcid the last few days, so I granted her that knowing it was near her time. She went very peacefully in my arms and she has many friends in heaven including her first dad (my late dh), her old rottie companions and her two brothers that had passed before her. She's in good company. It was a passing where I can say I'm at peace and I think we got it just right.

------------------------------------------

See you later my little girl. You've been such a great friend all these years and it's time for you to be renewed. I'll be missing you until we're reunited. Have fun being a young kitty again.

XO,
Mom

Bug, I am sorry that Katey's time had come, but glad for the happy 22 plus years that you spent together, and that her passing was so peaceful. Rest in peace at the Bridge sweet angel.
Hugs.

It is with tears that I write this - with sadness, but also with gratitude for a life well-lived and a passing in the arms of her loving mom. I know it will seem empty without her physical presence, bug, but also know that you will carry her close to your heart forever.

I am saddened to hear that Katey's time to depart came at last.  Twenty-two years is a very long time to be together, and I know how much of an empty space her passing will leave.  But it does seem that she was telling you it was time to go.

I celebrate her long life, and send many {{{hugs}}} to you, bug.

Sending lots of hugs your way, Bug. Katey lived a long life, but I know  how that it still hurts deeply when we must say good-bye to a much loved friend.

Hugs

bug I am so sorry that Katey had to leave you. It sounds like you got the timing just right though. She had 22 1/2 great years and went peacefully while she still had some dignity. I truly think it is better to be a few days too soon than an hour too late.
 RIP Angel Katey, you will be greatly missed ! Hugs to you and DH and all the family. Hoping you can have happy memories of her even through your tears.

Oh Bug, I'm so sorry but how wonderful that she died peacefully in your arms.  None of us could ask for a better ending for our much loved pets. I know how every much you will miss her after so long but I know she is now in a better place.  My thoughts are with you. Cry

Bug I am so sorry the time came for Katey to move on to the Rainbow Bridge. Even with a long time together to celebrate and treasure in memory, our loved ones are never with us long enough. You gave her the best life she could possibly have. Many hugs to you, peace and comfort as you keep her close in your heart.

I'm sorry you had to say good-bye to Katey, bug. It's hard when they have been part of our lives for so long even when we know it is the time. I hope the happy memories from your many years together can help ease the sad times for you.

Thank you everyone. Yes, no matter how long they've been with you, it's never long enough. I have just come back from personally taking her to be cremated. They have a wonderful place here that rivals any human funeral home I've seen and they're just as professional. My girl was left in their gentle hands on a pillowed altar and I've chosen a simple and elegant little urn. Hers will also have her birth and death date as she was something special for the time she spent on this earth. She will either be cremated tonight or tomorrow morning and I will have her home soon.

It is odd to not see her on her couch and because she knew that she wasn't going to be here much longer, she made the transition for me a little easier by choosing to be in a spot that she hadn't liked in the past -- the octagon. She came to like sleeping in there and for the last few weeks I had my living room back to looking like a living room (I had the coffee table right up against her couch with her water on it so she didn't have to go anywhere). My little girl was thinking of me even then. I know she had a great life, even when we got Bones, who drove her nuts. In the end, she was treated with respect by Mr. T and that really made me happy. He knew she was a senior and very fragile and treated her that way.

Even dh is sorry she's gone -- after all the crappy things he'd say about her, I guess he actually did have a soft spot for her. We miss her and will have many good times to think about from all these years.

Oh bug, this is a sad day indeed Cry Cry Cry   Katey felt so loved by you, so never doubt that.  I know you and your family will miss her forever.  I will keep you and Katey in my thoughts as she crosses the Bridge.  She will be welcomed by so many and taken care of until you can meet again.  {{{Hugs}}}
