Sad News For Me Today

Sad News For Me Today

By Gloria

 

Today I was told my cat Sunny has a tumor that is best left alone.  It is located inside her mouth in her jaw and the Vet said it would be a hard recovery from surgery for a cat that is over 17 years old.

 

real estate delaware countyShe has been my companion for roughly 16 years and she is the closest thing to a child I have ever had since I have no children of my own. 

 

I rescued Sunny from an abusive situation when she was a year and half old.  But the rescue was also a separation for her from her brother Trevor, the favored one, who was not up for adoption at that time: Sunny was the abandoned one.  That adjustment period was hard for Sunny, but we bonded in a good way, not a needy way.

 

Her life started with me when I lived in Seattle in a ground level apartment and where I would let her out on a leash and where she would bring me birds at my feet as I worked with the door open in the warmer months of the year.

 

She traveled with me and my friend Sarah as I moved back home, cross country in a van on a week long adventure.  She shadows almost my every move in her waking hours and always greets me at the door.  She is not a needy cat and had been healthy all her life until now.

I knew something was not right, yet I kept hoping it would go away.  Today I found out it will not and I need to prepare myself for the inevitable.

 

I have enjoyed my time with Sunny; she is the only pet I have ever had other than the shared family pets in my youth and a few small birds or two. 

 

Sharing my story here is my way of dealing with my great sadness and of paying homage to the many good years I have had with this wonderful creature, this beautiful Japanese Bobtail, my friend, Sunny.  May the time she has left be without much discomfort.
