Today was a bad day for me. My orange cat, Elsa, died this morning. She’s been sick for quite a while. My heart hurts so much. She was 8-1/5. She was with me a short 7-1/5 years. Elsa was my little baby; she thought I was her mom from the minute I brought her home after her spay surgery. For months, she never left me out of her sight. She loved to be cuddled in bed. On Thursday afternoon I had her in bed with me for a last cuddle. I knew the end was near because she was very agitated. I had my good cry on Thursday and Friday morning. My other cats knew she was dying. They stayed away from her for days. Animals are very intuitive. But, life goes on and I must care for my other cats. Give them all the love I can because life is short and we never know from one day to the next what life will bring.
