My darling cat...
In loving memory of my cat, Batsheba. She was the sweetest cat I've ever known. Whenever I was feeling down, she would sit beside me, purr and wash my hand. She was my best friend and I doubt I will ever see another cat like her again. She was unique in every way, and I think of her every day.
On Monday it will be two years since I had to let you go. You couldn't celebrate your birthday - like a lightning out of the blue you fell ill. The vet said your kidneys had stopped working. I couldn't understand why, and the vet said that sometimes it just happens. They tried to help you, but you kept getting worse, so I made the hardest decision of my life and told the vet that I would never keep you alive just for my sake. I held you as you fell asleep and I cried my eyes out, even though I knew you were no longer in pain.
Thank you for the wonderful days you gave me. You will always be with me in my heart.
