Amelia Kitty Catheart (Millie)
I saved this two week old tiger kitten from death after she was taken from her mother an thrown in a barn to fend for herself. I rushed her to the vet, they were not sure if she would live and I could not decide if I wanted a second cat. I went to visit her the next day and they brought her in and put her on the exam table. I bent over to talk to her and she began to purr and stood up and rubbed her whiskers on the brim of my baseball cap. It was a true connection from that day on.
For eleven years despite being in a safe home, she was afraid of anything and everything and often hid. My other male cat was sometimes a bully but she always lay by him at night and he would groom her. She would only let me really pet her on my bed at night where she would purr so loud like a motor boat.
She began several months ago to urinate and poop all around the house, I spent hundreds of dollars trying to remedy but to no avail and I had to put her down this week at 11.
May heart is so broken and my other cat just sits and looks for her.
I didn't feel this intense grief even when my father died. while I had her I had many dreams where I was trying to find her and protect her. I know time heals but right now it is my goal to get through the moment. My cats were such a comfort when I went through breast cancer 3 years ago.
My remaining cat is 15 and I am sure living his final years/months/days? Thank you Millie for your love and your fighting spirit and quirky habits...I miss you!
