Mama’s Cat

Yesterday morning my Mom’s cat died peacefully lying in her arms, wrapped in a crocheted blanket I made for him. She loved this cat SO much!  It was like a baby to her.  He had not been eating well and finally he was so weak he couldn’t stand up.  The next morning he died.  She is taking it well.  She is a strong Christian woman, age 93.  I didn’t know how well she would manage this when the time came, but she was very brave.  Some of you ask about my Mom, and she is being cheerful and loving as always.  Brave lady.  Thought I’d let you know.

  1. “Thy Lord hath decreed that ye worship none but Him, and that ye be kind to parents. Whether one or more attain old age in thy life, say not to them a word of contempt, nor repel them, but address them in terms of honor. And out of kindness, lower to them the wing of humility, and say, “my Lord! bestow on them Thy Mercy, even as they cherished me in childhood.”
    It’s always nice reading you entries 🙂

  2. Rest in Peace cat! I saw a crow today drifting down the Thames river, took pictures and a video of it while I was imagining what it was like alive. I’ve seen so many pigeons and other birds today, living life full of energy. I just imagined how that crow must have lived a full life, then somehow died and fell into the waters, or it fell into the waters and then drowned. Either way, depressing life.

  3. Love and light to you and your mom. It’s so hard losing a pet. It is sweet that the cat went peacefully in your mom’s arms. God bless her dear 93 year old soul! We are facing a difficult decision with our old dogs. Their quality of life is not very good any more. I just don’t want to make the decision for them. I wish they would go peacefully in their sleep.
