Sad Day....

Today we had to say goodbye to our kitty cat Casey. She was 13 years old. Casey suffered from type II feline diabetes. For two years we gave her insulin, totally changed her diet and with her help she lost 5 lbs., which was a 1/3 of her body weight. She seemed to be doing so well, until this morning. After talking to our vet and given our options, my husband and I along with the vet felt that putting her down was the best thing for her. It was a horrible decision to have to make but we just wanted her to be no more pain. Our daughters got to say goodbye and we've all been pretty emotional today, so love your pet and give them a hug today. I'll be sending my love to heaven where Casey is finally with her sister Harley running around and having fun.


  1. I'm so sorry for the loss of your Casey. Pets are such a big part of the family. ((((((((((HUGS))))))))))

  2. Lisa,
    I grieve with you over the loss of your dear family member, Casey.
    We just learned that our kitty "George" is a diabetic.
    I hope this poem gives you some comfort.

    Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
    When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
    All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
    They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
    You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
    Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
