Poor Faith, such a freak way to be hurt, I am not going into details but it was truly a HOW did this happen and we were hopeful that maybe we could get lucky and we would lose a leg and get to have the sweetest three legged indoor house kitty..
She always followed us everywhere we went.. If we were on the deck, so was she, if we were in the gardens, so was she, if we were working in the pasture/big gardens, on a fence post, or a rock or a higher spot.. faith would be talking up a storm and making sure you did a good job and maybe had time to give her a pat..
Faith loved her yard time and the small croft by the house yard, she was always a indoor/outdoor kitty and would turn into pretty much a indoor winter kitty..
Sadly, it was worse then we first thought and that very hard choice had to be made.. The only good thing I can say is that we got to say goodbye and that she seems to understand that it was time to go..
We were able to give her a final resting place on the farm by one of her favorite spots.
Lift a glass to the prettiest, sweetest, Fluff you would ever meet, she was shy as heck with peaple she didn’t know.. but for her peaple, she was the most gentle, loving, purrpot you could ask for.. I can not even get to the point of saying gone to soon.. because it does not fit.. I am still in shock.. Its going to take time to wrap our heads and heal our hearts.
I’m so sorry
Thank you Sage.. she will be deeply missed, I am grateful for the hundreds of photos I have taken over the years that show e a glimpse of her so happy in our world..
I am so sorry to hear this. I know how much she meant to you, and I know you did your best for her. Sometimes we just have to let them go to spare them anymore pain. Hugs, my friend.
Thank you Maria, she was a delight from the moment she joined us, and yes, it was clear that when I said good bye that it was time, Does not make it easier but at least I have hundreds of photos of her over the years, glimpses of her enjoying her life on the farm, in the gardens, in the house, with us directly and so on.. they are bitter-sweet but slowly they will be more sweet..
My sincere sympathies on your loss. Lots of hugs.
I am so sorry for your loss. Hugs, hugs, hugs.
Thank you for your kind words and hugs
I’m so sorry for your loss Val, she was a beautiful kitty. We never have enough time with our pets do we, even if by our account they’ve had a long life with us.
Thank you Silver, it was not enough time, but I will admit that we have such a wonderful relationship, she never had those stand off teens or I am a adult, I can do it.. she was always the sweetest.. Hi, I am so happy to hang with you. .never a pick up cat, always four on the floor unlike her brother Patrick who loves to be held.. I mean loves to be upside down in your arms for as long as you can stand it lol..
So sorry to hear about Faith kitty. Animals so often love us in a way that humans can’t — they touch a spot deep inside of us. Your photos of her are beautiful. She was definitely a gift to be cherished. A gift also that her final resting place is near you and in a spot that she enjoyed so much.
She was indeed a gift, as was her time with us and every time the falling pink cherry Blossoms will cover her grave, I will picture her rolling in them, she loved their scent..
So sorry for your sudden unexpected loss. 😦
Thank you.. It was very hard on all of us.. and I know and see others on the farm besides us looking for her.. I am still watching for her when I am doing the kitty counts and daily checks.. sigh.. she is missed..
