My cookie was an angel sent for Heaven. She was the epitome of a great cat. She was a very happy cat. I was always there to play with her and keep her warm and happy. She was one to always give me licks, and kisses.
She started to get sick in August. She developed scabs all over her body. The vet said she had never seen anything like it. She did some cell research and nothing significant showed. The vet suggested a biopsy, which would have cost a lot of money. A lot of money I didn't have. I researched funds, however, the funding had run out.
She was doing okay for a while. Then around December she started to loss weight. She was seen by the vet again and tested to anemia and diabetes, but she didn't have that. Unfortunatly, the vet said she had seen something like this in vet school and it didn't look good.
So I took her home and prayed for a miracle. I continued to take good care of her. Love her unconditionally. She took a turn for the worse on January 6th. I knew for some reason this would be her last day with me. She started to cry, which she hadn't done previously. I stayed close to her, cried and kept her close and warm. When I looked into her eyes, telling her how much I loved her she purred and I think she knew what I was saying.
When I tried to sleep that night, in my prayers, I didn't want to let go, I just knew it was her time.
I got up to go to to the bathroom, she hadn't stirred. I knew she died. I gathered her up in a blanket and carried her to the couch and held her tight. Then the tears started and haven't stopped.
She is my angel and I miss her so much.
I kissed her and held her so close. Why did she have to have an awful disease to take her away from me?
I am in the process of having her cremated and going to keep her ashes.
Cookie you will always be in my heart and soul. No other can compare to you. You were eleven. But God took you too soon, maybe I am being selfish, but my heart is so broken, nothing will ever mend it.

Beautiful Cookie
by: Anonymous

I'm so sorry for your loss. I lost my Chrissy in December and feel like my heart is shattered. I still feel like it can't be real, that I'll wake up and everything will be different. Only time will help you, I'll pray for you and for Cookie. She was very loved, you did all you could. The Rainbow Bridge has a new beautiful angel waiting for you!

Thank you Doreen for your kind thoughts and words. It means a lot to me that a stranger has reached out and touched me like this!
She is never out of my mind. I feel Cookie around me all the time. Although, I know she has passed, I still feel her, imagine that!
It will be a LONG time until I will be myself again.

My Little Cookie
by: Doreen U.K.

Karen I am sorry for your loss of your cat. Your little Cookie. You are not being selfish wanting your cat to be around. She was your companion, your baby, your everything. You don't want to lose someone you LOVE. The sadness is that no one can replace her. She was UNIQUE. When you have had the best how can you compare this to anything else you may have in the future. We all have expectations in life and nothing can make up for your Loss. I hope that life improves for you and that you will be comforted in your Sorrow.
