So...I've been on a mini hiatus from DA, I've been more active on tumblr lately since I haven't done much art wise. It's been a little hard to focus and bring myself to start or finish anything.
Well where to begin...
When we found Cookie (actually our dog Bogie found her) she was in our backyard against the house mewing frantically trying to escape our dog who was merely trying to flush her out of hiding and play with her. She was a super tiny kitten, covered with fleas, and scared to death of everything. We put her in a box with a towel, bathed her (god it was disgusting, the water turned a deep rust color), fed her formula, and with much protesting from my Dad we gave her a home. After Bogie's passing we always said we were thankful for this little gift he left us. Here she grew plump and content and we loved her with all our hearts for 16-17 years.
Recently we noticed she hadn't been doing to well. First she was loosing weight, not eating and not using the restroom. Her x-rays showed a tumor and because of her age and the tumors exact location couldn't be determined meant it couldn't be removed. Even after seeing a specialist her condition continued to get worse. After treatments to keep her hydrated and to clean her colon she wouldn't budge more than a few inches so we took her in and she was placed in an oxygen tank. Later in the afternoon as I got to work we got the call from the vet to hurry back, because she didn't have much time and she passed on before my mom and sister made it back. Me being stuck at work was the worst, trying to keep it in, not being able to at times, and to just continue working sucked.
It really hurts now that she's gone and sometimes my sister and I still think we see her black and white blur go by, or hear the pitter patter of her feet. I just feel so tired and depressed. She was our baby cat. She slept with us, watched tv with us, comforted us, she just brought joy to our lives by merely existing. I thought she would out live Cloe since she was a lot younger so I wasn't expecting this. It just hurts...*sigh* At least she's not in pain anymore.
We love you...rest in peace Cookie.
