"I know I'm gorgeous and all that, but blind me one more time with that flash and you'll be losing an eyeball, lady."


The last few days have been very sad ones. Luna suffered a seizure over the weekend. She lost her will to live along with her motor coordination. This morning, as we were preparing to take her to the vet, it was clear that she had no fight left in her--she couldn't be bothered to growl at the dog. I will tell you the story of her life soon--but I just can't today.

Oh dear, I am so sorry about that beautiful creatures end. Do know that I am thinking of you as you deal with this terrible loss.

My heart is with you with such a sad post. I know how it feels .. I have missed my darling Calicos terribly and I still can't help but cry at times. It seems to make your heart ache forever.
Luna was much loved and knew it I'm sure .. I would love to know her story when you are up to telling it.
I'm so sorry for your loss.

Karen said...

Oh no, I'm so sorry! My heart goes out to you, that is such a loss. What a beautiful, spunky, silky, feisty presence in your lives she was. I know she will be greatly missed. Sincere condolences to you both.

What a regal cat - she'll be so missed but you must have such wonderful memories of life with Luna.

Big hugs and purrs from the Studio Assistants

Libby said...

I am so sorry to hear this. Being a major cat lover and having lost a few in my time I know what you are going through. But if she is like my Chimarni who we had to have put to sleep November 2006 she won't actually leave you. I still see Chims around and he was in his favourite spot yesterday at the bottom of the stairs! So they never really leave! {{hugs}}

That is so much too bad.

our friend Ben said...

Oh God, Curmudgeon and Wing Nut, I am SO sorry!!!! The morning we had to leave for Nashville for Thanksgiving, my favorite parrot, Marcus Hookbill, was lying on the bottom of his cage. We had to bury him and run for the car! I am still devastated. We now have three "senior" pets---our golden retriever, Molly, our Maine coon cat, Athena, and our Amazon parrot, Plutarch---and I watch them all anxiously and pray for a few more good years for them all. Bright blessings to dear Luna, and to you both! And as Libby said, they don't really leave us as long as we continue to love them.

I am so sorry to hear your news. What a beautiful cat she was. I will be thinking of you.

Dan said...

The same thing happened to my little doggy a few years ago. It was a very tough situation to witness so I know first hand what you have gone through. Sorry for your loss, take comfort that you gave your kitty the best life and that you will always have your memories of the good times.
