Today at 2:05 p.m. our beloved cat died.  She died in my husband’s arms.  This is the first time in my life that I have had to deal with a pet dying.  I had pets growing up but none of them ever died on me.

This cat was a present from my husband to me.  He got Malley the year after we got married.  She was not even a year old when we got her.

My husband is absolutely devastated.  He was the closest to her as she always hung out in the basement, his man-cave, where he would play his guitar and watch his fish.

But the whole family loved Malley cat, me, my two boys, and Coda our dog.  I can’t believe she’s gone and we won’t ever see her again.

My husband is outside digging a hole so we can bury her today as we‘re supposed to get some snow tonight.

This really sucks!  The only comfort is that she is no longer suffering.  She wasn’t eating, she was literally skin and bones, and at the very end, could not walk.  It is so terrible to watch someone or something you love dying and know it’s just a matter of time.

    • So sorry to hear of Mally’s passing.  My cat passed away several months ago too.  It hurts, but the suffering is gone and Mally had a wonderful life with your family.

      Take care.

      Rainbow Bridge  

      Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge...

      When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food and water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.

      The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing: they miss someone very special to them; who had to be left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. The bright eyes are intent; the eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to break away from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. YOU have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

    • Sorry to hear about Malley, Diane. I’ve had several furry friends take that final journey, but only one had brain damage which I didn’t know she had and even though the vet said it would be quick to euthanize her, I wanted her to be around her human and cat friends. I knew it was coming when I had to give her water from an eye dropper. One morning we woke up and she had left us during that night. My other cat sat beside her like the protective big brother, even came with us when we buried her in the back yard.  

      I want to say I believe in the Rainbow Bridge, but all of my cats and dogs were so full of love that I pray they return to give that special unconditional love to someone else, like they did me.

      My condolences to you and your family.

    • Thank you all for your condolences.  Tracy, thanks for sharing that wonderful poem.

      We buried her in the backyard this afternoon and my husband made a cross and put it on top of the gravesite.  My son drew a picture of the cat and put it in the box with Malley.  He’s sad too but I don’t think the 2-year old gets it.
