Sad day for us

Earlier today Babette, my beloved cat of almost 16 years, was quite clearly done with this life. My wonderful mother in law went with us, and Eric and I were with her at the end. She passed over perfectly peacefully. She was a very good cat, and I miss her beyond the telling.

Goodbye, my Malkin.

I'm so sorry, Rachel. I had a dream about you last night, actually! I'd spend the evening cooking a feast, and then arguing about pumpkin pie. Just before going to sleep I was remembering the story of the Pumpkin Custard Atrocity Pie, and the happy hominess of being in your house while you cooked. And enjoying creating that same sense in my own home.

So when I went to sleep, I had a complicate dream about getting a goat and a chicken from a Chinese restaurant in lieu of leftover, and calling you for your advice on what to do with the goat and the chicken.

Miss you, and am so sorry to hear about Babette.

May she roll in the fields of catnip that awaits her.

Oh honey. I'm so sorry. She was lucky to have the best cat mom and dad in the entire world.

*loves you both*

*hug* She was indeed the best of Gray Malkins, and couldn't have asked for more loving humans in her life. I will miss her too.

oh honey, i'm so sorry. she will be missed. but i'm glad she went peacefully, and that you were brave enough to do what needed doing, when it needed doing. that's such a hard decision to make.

i'll light a candle for her. *HUG*
