Farewell, Old Cat

Today we will be putting our beloved 18-year old cat, Bailey, to sleep. Being so old and in relatively good health until the last couple of weeks when she started having seizures, we really feel that having her until such an advanced age has been a gift. Always aloof, she was nonetheless a loving companion, and her loss will be felt most by Mark, whom she loved best and was entirely devoted.

There was a time, when we had our two cats, that I said we could never live without a cat (there was nothing more comforting than the "cat sandwich" at night, with Bailey asleep on one side of my legs, and Pru asleep on the other). But, with our sweet and loving puppy, I think we'll see how it goes for a while, and for the first time in 18-years, we won't be "cat people."

We'll miss you, old girl.

Oh, Bakers ~ What a rough few months. I am sure Bailey and Pru will be bouncing of the walls in kitty heaven, and if God was cruel and combined kitty heaven with puppy heaven, they will be scheming revenge on Casey! May the memories of happy cats bring peace and smiles, and may Jasper fill your days with new life and cuddles.

Oh, my friends...what news!! I am so sorry to hear of yet another loss of your beloved pets. You all have my love and I'm hoping that Jasper brings lots of puppy smiles, kisses and hugs to you and yours. ~Joanne
