There's a reason that I haven't been updating my blog recently. My cat was sick. There was a week of caring for her, hoping she was going to get better. And a weekend of realizing that she wasn't and that I was going to have to take her in and put an end to her suffering. So on Monday, April 14, 2008, at 8:15am my beloved Misha was euthanized. It was one of the most difficult decisions I have ever had to make and that final trip to the vet's office was most decidedly the most difficult task I have ever undertaken. I was with her when she died. I am comforted by the fact that it was quick, peaceful and painless. My heart is broken over the loss. I am sobbing as I type this. I know that one day soon I will have cried enough tears and the grieving will give way to the warm memories. But right now the pain is intense.
So, goodbye Misha...my Mish-Mosh...you are missed.
