This Cat Loved Life & was Happy to her Very Last Day!
This is a touching cat story about ‘sleer’ a cat that loved life and never cried or was sad, no matter what pain she went through. All she did was purr.
It brought tears to my eyes..
Let’s let her mommy Maria tell the story:
“Sleer is the little girl I brought home from the vet’s office. She was supposed to be the companion to my other cat, but was my best girl. She would look at me and purr. She never left my side (even when you wanted her to). She always seemed to need dental care when we saw the vet, bad breath.
At age 11, she had become 5 pounds from 11, but the vet was unsure of the issue. We saw a dental specialist who gave her 2 months to live. She had a very rare aggressive form of cancer, in her mouth.
Everyday Sleer still ate and drank her regular food even though I would try to make something easier for her to eat. She met me at the door with the normal purr and followed me to bed at night. I looked at her and knew it was time to make that last trip to the vet. Appointment made, I came home for one last night to be by her side.
When I opened the door she was not there waiting. I ran all over the house looking and found her in the litter pan. One ‘meow’. I picked her up brought her down with me to the living room and spent my Friday night easing her. She still did not want to leave me. I had to tell her I was ok before she let go.
Now I have her ashes at home with me. My girly girl did not cry, moan or whine, she only ever purred. Even the vet was astonished. I will miss her very much…”
