My Farewell from Miss Kitty

Well I came home last nite(I was gone overnite to my folks home where I stay sometimes when I work the nite shift and then early the next morning) to find a white envelope. No return address and it looked like a wedding invitation. I opened it not expecting much since we don't get many invitations and thought it was from someone we might not know very well. As I opened the envelope and saw this card-I knew it wasn't a wedding invitation. In fact I knew what it was, a sympathy card. I didn't want to see it because I don't want to think about Miss Kitty not being here. The house seems strange. No baby gate to walk over and no patting my leg to lift her up on my lap. A simple card-very appropriate, but sad.
We have a good vet. The card was heartfelt. It meant a lot to me.

But the little card inside was almost too much. My pent up tears wanting to all come rushing out like waves. I've kept Miss Kitty's fallen hair over the years(call me morbid-but it was so pretty and I've always had a plan for it). I think it was the little paw print that did it. The little tuft of hair(in the upper left hand corner is barely visible. Thinking of her little lifeless body putting a print on this little yellow card is hard to take. I know I'll treasure the gesture forever-I just don't want to believe she's gone yet.
