Good-bye sweet baby girl

My sweet baby girl died today. No reason for it, she wasn't sick, didn't have any major health problems, didn't eat poison, didn't get hit by a car, she just died. I guess it was just her time. One minute she was playing with her best friend in the whole wide world -- her orange ball -- then the next she laying in distress. Sonny was outside with her when it started so we know the exact timeline. It only was a matter of minutes and she was gone. Gone before we could do anything but panic as we watched over her during her last few minutes on this earth.

My little spitfire girl is gone. I'm lost, shocked and so, so sad. Losing both my four-legged babies in 10 months time is just heartbreaking. Thunder and Tehya were our first kids and now they are gone.

Our vet believes it was a blood clot that ended Tehya's life, based on the exam. The only comfort we have in all this is it was quick for her and she was doing what she loved most - just seconds before it happened - playing with her ball.

Tehya will be so missed. Right now I don't know how I'm going to get through my days without her. I only hope she knew how much we loved her.

Sherry, I'm so sorry to hear about this. I lost my best friend December 21st to pancreatic cancer. He had lived with me for 15 of the 16 years of his life. This cat was by my side at ALL times. For me, what helped get me through the early grief was the joy I felt in knowing I was finally going to have my daughter. That knowledge helped distract me from my pain, but I still miss him so terribly at times. You will miss your baby, too. I'm very sorry.

Sherry,
I'm so sorry for your loss. It's so hard to lose any pet. When it's sudden and unexpected, its especially hard. I hope your sadness passes quickly, and the warm and loving memories of your sweet pup comfort you forever.
