Good-bye sweet Beauty

Today we said farewell to our little feline friend. She went peacefully and very quickly this morning at the vet. Our vet said that typically when they go that fast and with such peace their blood is very toxic and thus she was a very sick cat. Roon went with Alex and stayed with her and petted her through-out. Alex was able to say good-bye and give her one final sniff. The vet says this will enable Alex to move on as she knows her buddy is gone.

Our vet is so compassionate and great. He made a plaster casting of Beauty's paw print and is taking it home to bake and engrave for us. That is above and beyond in my opinion. Here is one last picture of our girl. Thanks for all the sweet comments and e-mails I have received - they are really appreciated!

Such a sweet goodbye. She lived a very long and happy life with you, and your family and I don't think a cat could have asked for more. We're thinking about ya'll! Love you!

Oh what a sweet thing to do for you. I'm so glad that you'll have her paw print to remember her by. We're keeping you in our prayers and love you all very much.

Oh Stephanie it IS so hard to lose a pet who has been a part of your family for so long. We had to put our B.Bopp (Maltese) to sleep the day before we left for Russia to meet Viktoria. I'm bawling right now just thinking about it. What a neat and sweet thing for your vet to do making that little paw print!
