My little cat and her sweet spirit

by Linn

I believe my knew she was going to die, and I too knew something was going to happen to her. She was an outside cat that only wanted to come in when the weather was cold and she would stay cuddled up in my bedroom all winter.
She found me about nine years ago on a warm spring day. I named her Little Sweetie and she became for me a gentle and loving soul that seemed to have nine lives. Every morning she would come on the porch where I was sitting and then leave the very second i would go back inside. I loved her so much and the bond was so strong,I thought she would alway be around.
I left for a few hours yesterday and when i came back I could see her lying between two trees in the front yard. This is the same spot she would stare at for hours it seemed when she sit on the porch. I walked over to her and called her name, and i knew that she was dead. I did not know what to do, because it seemed impossible for her to be gone, I had just petted her a few hours earlier. I ask a neighbor if they saw what happened to her and was told that two dogs got her, when she tried to climb the tree.
I had the feeling for a long time that she was in danger, but did not how to handle that. She too was staying on my porch a lot longer and it seemed to me looking back that she wanted me to love her as much as I could in the short time we had left.
I woke crying this morning and I can feel her little spirit when I walk in the front yard or sit on the bench.
I miss her so very much and I wonder if this pain can every go away.

Thank you Doreen
by: Linn

Thank you for your words of comfort. I am glad that so many on this site love animals, It lets me know that I am not alone and that others feel the way I do. I found a new little gray kitten, that just showed up at my door two days ago. It is funny how I can go on loving so much, That little kitten is bringing me so much joy. I know that I loved little Sweetie with all my heart and know that I was kind and loving to her, but I have to have a special place in my heart for her and keep loving until the end.

Linn. the pain of your loss of your cat will go away in time. Because you LOVE. You will HURT. don't let it put you off loving another cat or other pet. If you have LOVE TO GIVE, give it otherwise you will lose out on rich relationships ongoing. Loving another cat or pet will help you to recover from your loss. Each pet has a different personality. I feel the same way when I watch nature programms on T.V. I feel so sad and upset when i see animals killed by predators. But this is the nature of the beast. In the animal kingdom this is what happens. But it still upsets me. I have a cat in the garden who kills all my darling birds I feed every day. My love of pets is birds. I am only at my best in the presence of birds. I adore them. I hurt when I lose one or when I have to go and rescue one from the garden when it is harmed by a cat. Your pain will ease in time.
