Goodbye, Little Scarlett

June 1, 19??- December 28, 2005

Scarlett died sometime last night. I can't stop crying when I think about her. She was part of our family. Me, and my mom especially looked out for her. Chasing off other cats. Looking for her when it got cold, giving her treats and keeping her company. She liked to rub against our legs and she meowed when she saw us. I'm really, really sad.

I'm just so happy that she found her way to us before she got too sick to walk. I'm happy that she was with us in her final days and that we could keep her warm, safe and comfortable. I'm happy that I was able to rub her and give her some human contact and that she enjoyed every ear scratch and fell asleep against my leg. I'm happy that I know what happened to her and don't have to wonder where she was when she died.

We buried her in our backyard.

I'm still crying right now and it's going to feel so odd not going out looking for little Scarlett. But she is at peace now and she knew she was loved. I wish I could stop crying when I think of her.

    I am so very sorry for your loss, Gunngirl. I am happy she was able to make it home too. My friend's old cat just disappeared one day, she knew she died somewhere but never knew where or when. Atleast Scarlett was with her loved ones.

    I'm sorry gunngirl. I know it hurts but at least you know she went surrounded by those who loved her.
    Hugs & more hugs

    Do you believe in reincarnation? The nine lives of the fabulous feline?
