My Heidi

On March 25, I had to make the painful decision to put my sweet little cat, Heidi down. She was my shadow and friend for the past 12 years. I've had many cats through the years (and still do) but Heidi was more than a cat. She was human-like is so many ways. Whenever I cried, either from pain or hurt, Heidi came right over to me and nibbled gently on my hand. She could sense my pain. She was rescued one bitter February from the boardwalk in Atlantic City. I'll never forget that beautiful day when God brought us together. She slept right next to me each night and greeted me at the door everytime I came home. I will never have another Heidi but I am blessed to have had her fill my life with happiness for these past 12 years.

Heidi was a blessing
by: Bob

Heidi looks like an absolute sweetheart. What a beautiful face!

I have just had a similar experience. On April 1, I had to make the decision to release my friend, Remington, a marvelous Russian Blue mix from his suffering. He has been a member of my family for 17 years and is deeply missed. Remington, like Heidi, was a rescue kitty, and like Heidi, empathetic and loving.

I think we can both agree that we have been blessed in a very special way by our relationships with our cats.

We both likely have a long process ahead of ourselves in finding balance once again but I want you to know that you are certainly not alone.

kitties are great
by: Dale

First of all thank you for rescuing Heidi those years ago. You are a kind person. Cats are peculiar creatures in that they seem to read our moods. I also think that a cat that was rescued remembers its rescuer and returns the kindness that it is shown. It's hard to lose such a friend and I feel your pain. God Bless You
