Loss [Aug. 29th, 2006|05:53 pm]
[mood |sadsad]

I can't believe that she's gone!
We were together for 15 years! She hasn't been well over that past several days. She had diffculty breathing nad was probably in pain. But she couldn't tell me. After all she was only my cat, Patches. I got an appointment at the vet for her in the afternoon and my one and only Vito was driving while I held Patches in my arms. But as we were nearing the the vet Patches went frantic. I tried to calm her done thinking she was just scared. She was an indoor cat that almost never went outside. As I finally got her to calm down she went limp and passed away in my arms. We had just stopped at a light when this all happened. Vito had just looked back at me as she went limp. He says to me "She didn't" and I nodded yes.
As we sat at home that evening I kept looking up expecting to see Patches but she's gone! She will be burried at Bubbling Well in Napa valley a beautiful Pet Cemetary.
Patches was a companion much like a child that needed my care. She was always there in my times of happiness and when I was extremely sad or lonely.
I'll miss using her special code words like "some". Which meant her soft food that she got for her dinner.
She was one smart cat she would do her shake paw trick to get her treats in the morning.
I know that I'm starting to ramble so I'll close for now.

I'm sorry for your loss losing a beloved pet hurts very much. My cat Sammy was attacked and paralyzed last year by a rottwieler and I had to have him put down. I was with him while they did it my heart was crying no don't but my mind said if he lives he'll never have a normal life.

Yes I tend to use LJ as a different type of outlet. I tend to communicate in the communities and with certain friends that I have come to know here or other social sites. When I interact with others here it actually tends to help me either deal with my own issues or helps me to step back from my problems and help others where I can. I should start to journal things in my life so that others can better understand who I am and even also so that I can look at how things are actually changing in my own life.
I really do appreciate you asking that question and showing some level of interest.
