A life without Magic

A life without Magic
Magic P. Katt
March 1997 - July 25, 2014
Sweet stripey wonder-cat, kitty of my heart, rest in peace

We lost our dear, sweet cat Magic on Friday night. She had some seizures earlier in the week, and on Friday she seemed not to recover fully. After an evening of labored breathing when it was clear she was in pain, we once again made that awful final decision to end her suffering.

Sleepy Magic, Sleepy Soda

Her dear companion for 17 years, Soda, died just two and a half weeks earlier. I think Magic wasn't too interested in living life without Soda.

I am just devastated, without my two cat-babies who were with me for 17 years. This apartment without cats is grim indeed. I am still in shock, and can't believe they're both gone.

  9. I am so sorry. My heart breaks for you. I am facing the same scenario here. Since the loss of my sweet Ringo last month, my other boxer baby Brandi has gone down hill fast. She is 12 which is old for a boxer and I know her time is close. I just haven't the strength yet to do what needs to be done. It will be the first time in my entire life without a four-legged family member. I'm right there with you, feeling your pain.

  12. Oh no, I am so very sorry. To have lost them both is imaginable. I know it's no comfort, but they're together now. And they'll be waiting at the Rainbow Bridge to greet you. *hugs*

  13. My heart goes out to you and Alex. That's never easy to lose a four-legged family member, but losing both of them so close together is even worse.
