Kitty

She would've been 22 years old on October 23rd but her body couldn't quite make it that far. She far outlived our expectations. We gave her a good, loving home and she returned the love two fold. It's so damn hard to say goodbye to our old friends. We'll miss you more than you'll know Kitty.

I'm sorry to read of your loss. One of our cats died this year as well. It's hard; they're part of your family. I thought our guy lived pretty long (10), but wow, 22 years is amazing.

Oh......I'm sorry!! The kids grew up with her! She was their "guage" to adulthood!! They knew they were growing, if Kitty would let them "see" her!! :( Hope she had an easy time of it. You were good, loving "parents"!

Long lived the Queen! She will be missed.

22 years sure is a good life for a cat. And I just know that her life was happier for having known you and your both. Remember the good times, and look forward to being reunited at the rainbow bridge.

Thank you for the kind words. They really do become our family.

My husband and I just lost our sixteen year old cat; I wish she could have made it to 22 but it wasn't to be. It is so hard to lose them. Our thoughts are with you and yours.
