Chi Chi as a baby...


  1. Hi, I just popped over from the TLC blog where I was leaving Paulette a thank you and saw your post. I don't know why in particular but I decided to stop by for a nosy. I'm so glad I did because I got to see the pictures of beautiful ChI Chi. She looks so sweet as a kitten and obviously grew up to be a beautiful cat, her fur is amazing. I am a cat person and can empathise with how you must be feeling right now. I feel so sad for both you and Chi Chi.
    I hope you don't mind me sending you this poem, it is sad but also I hope a little comforting.
    Hugs Lottie

    If it should be that I grow weak
    and pain should keep me from my sleep.
    Then you must do what must be done,
    for this last battle cannot be won.
    You will be sad, I understand.
    Don’t let your grief then stay your hand.
    For this day more than all the rest,
    your love for me must stand the test.
    We’ve had so many happy years,
    what is to come can hold no fears.
    You’d not want me to suffer so.
    The time has come, please let me go.
    Take me where my needs they’ll tend
    and please stay with me until the end.
    Hold me firm and speak to me,
    until my eyes no longer see.
    I know in time that you will see,
    the kindness that you did for me.
    Although my tail its last has waved,
    from pain and suffering I’ve been saved.
    Please do not grieve it must be you
    who had this painful thing to do.
    We’ve been so close, we two, these years.
    Don’t let your heart hold back its tears.

  2. Well, I see that you've lost your beloved Chi Chi. So sorry for your loss. I still grieve for my Muffin and that was over 9 years ago. I miss him so much, now I have tears in my eyes again. These fur-babies really hold a place in our hearts. So sorry you are going through this.
