Mila

I am taking a few days off from blogging due to the loss of our kitten Mila. Although she was only 1½ years old, she developed severe inflammatory bowel disease and we could not save her. All her vets were wonderful, but she became too weak to survive. She fought a hard fight for the last five weeks and died yesterday.

She was my constant crafting companion and a wonderful sister kitty to our 7 year old cat, Jackson. Bill, Jackson and I will miss her so very much.

Here are a few of our favorite photos from our short time with her.

So sorry for your loss Linda.

We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary than our own,
live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached.
Unable to accept its awful gaps, we still would live no other way.
We cherish memory as the only certain immortality,
never fully understanding the necessary plan.

I am so incredibly sorry to read of the loss of your sweet Mila. I know how quickly and completely our furry friends can fill our hearts and how difficult it is to have to say good-bye.

It's been a difficult month for you. You remain in my thoughts and prayers.

So sorry for your loss. My daughter lost one of her sweet cats at an early age also and it doesn't matter how old they are, it hurts :( I'm sure you filled her short life full of love and she yours. Have you ever read the poem Rainbow Bridge? It is very comforting.
