Rest in Peace, Rebecca

It is a sad day for our family. Our dear kitty Rebecca passed away this morning. Becky came to us about a year ago as a stray who wandered into the yard and took a liking to us. The feeling was mutual. Becky and I spent a lot of time together since it was just the two of us home during the weekdays. She was a timid and easily frightened girl, but she was coming to trust us to love her and take care of her. This morning, I found her dead in the living room. I think she had a heart attack.

We have no idea how old Becky was, but I believe she had a very old soul. There was such depth and knowledge in those beautiful golden eyes. I felt as if I'd known Becky before.

We laid our Becky to rest this afternoon in the backyard. Rebecca, we loved you well, and there is an empty place in our hearts and lives without you.

So sorry to hear about your cat! When I lost my first pet that I acquired after I moved out by myself, I was heartbroken. DH had to bury her alone because I couldn't stand it.

It is wonderful to have good pets, and I'm sure she's catnipping in the beyond now...

Oh, I am so sorry about Rebecca. It's good to know her last year was in a loving home like yours.

So sorry to hear about Rebecca. It is obvious that you loved her and will miss her. Have you heard of the "Rainbow Bridge?" It is a poem about our passed-on furbabies. It helped me when my cat passed away.

I just read about Rebecca. That is so sad to hear. Like someone else said earlier, it is at least heartwarming to know she had a good loving family like yours.
