    She is in full renal failure. I’m sending her on Tuesday at noon, Eastern Daylight Time in the U.S. I could have sent her this morning when the doctor gave me the results of the blood test. I wanted her to have the weekend, though, so that any of her friends who can and want to see her one more time can do so.
    The doctor sent pain medication home with her. Sub-Q fluids won’t even help at this point. She still seems like a happy cat. If things get worse before Tuesday, though, I will send her on when she needs to leave.
    My baby girl who licked my thumb the first time I held her. The matriarch of my little cat family. She’ll see her brother Gabriel again, and her sister Buttercup.
    My pastor likes to talk about the Restoration, the time when God will make a new heaven and a new earth and put things back the way they were supposed to be. He says that my seeing Penny again is part of that.

    I’m sorry Leeny,

    It’s a tough decision, but at times the right one, which does not make it any easier. We kit lovers know this and for sure feel for you. You take good care.

    Penny is at the Bridge. I sent her this morning, Friday. Cedar and Sheree got me up at about 7:40. Penny was sitting hunched up. When I pet her, she didn’t purr. She moved away a few feet. She was no longer a happy cat. So I let her go. We had one last normal evening together last night, me and my little family.

    I wish Emma were still here to write a story about Penny’s arrival. I wish we still lit candles when someone dies. I did recite “Night Night, Furball” and the last verse of “Pawprints” to Penny this morning.

    Goodbye for now, baby.

    That’s Cedar, watching out the window. You can’t see Penny’s colors because the rainbow is so bright, you can only see a shadow of her.

    My deepest sympathies Leeny,

    Play hard at the Bridge, Miss Penny, greeted by Velvet and Spice and all our beloved furry friends who reside there.

    I am terribly sad about the loss of your beloved friend. I had made that appointment for Renzo, who was over 20 years old and doing relatively well until the final days before he died, but he died at home in one of his favourite spots (where there is a sunbeam) the evening before I was to take him to the vet’s.

    It is a horrible feeling; cats haunt every aspect of our being as they are the Lares (household gods, among the Romans) of our dwellings. Being bereft of them is stark indeed; I didn’t feel at home chez moi or anywhere else after Renzo died. I really didn’t feel good again until Livia appeared on the scene.

    Do you have other non-human companions, cats, dogs or any others?

    Reading this thread brought tears to my eyes. I am so sorry for your loss and Leeny is at the bridge and no longer suffering. I lost my 18 year old cat “Baby” back in 2008 and it feels like yesterday. They are our family and we love them with all our hearts. My heart breaks for you!

    It’s Miss Penny who has gone to the Bridge, Leeny is thank-God her hoomin and still very much with us.

    Lagatta, Leeny is owned by kits Cedar and Sheree.

    And although I love my Dorry boy, there is still a part of me that misses my first kitty Nicky, who left me 7 yrs ago after some 12 yrs. Being owned by him was a major learning curve – for both of us!

    I’ve just made Penny’s funeral and burial arrangements. Her funeral will be on Saturday the 1st at 2:30 pm EDT. She will have been cremated by then, and the cremains will be in a burial vault. She will be buried in Gabriel’s grave with him. They say there will be two markers there, one for her and one for Gabie, but I don’t understand how that can work, and I guess I won’t until I see it.

    I wanted to bury her body in a grave beside Gabie’s, but it cost twice as much. I have the resources, but it just didn’t seem prudent to spend them that way. It doesn’t matter anyway; she and Gabie are at the Bridge and have been playing together since Friday. It doesn’t matter to anyone but me what happens to the containers they used while on this earth. And, even if her body were buried, it would eventually go away, too.

    It doesn’t matter, does it? It doesn’t matter that, instead of a kitty body, a little bit of white powder is going to be buried? And it’s even better, isn’t it, that she will be buried in the same space with Gabie rather than in a space beside him?

    And none of this really matters at the Bridge, does it?
