Today was your last day girl, and it was a very sad one. I know you are now someplace even better than your earthly home - which you loved very much indeed. Dance on, Quita, and thank you.
Created with Admarket's flickrSLiDR.
Quita (Kee-tah) was 14 years old. This morning I took her to the vet to have her put to sleep, as she was suffering terribly from kidney failure. It is surely one of the most difficult things we humans have to decide and do. When is the right time? There really is none.
She went quickly and peacefully, even purring a little during her last few minutes. The vet was wonderful.
I am not able to do much today. I've spent the last couple of hours scouring my computers and cameras for digital pictures of Quita, and then putting them in a Quita set on Flickr, a final tribute and thank you.
My wife just called from NYC, so there were many tears all over again as I told the story of Quita's passing. We loved her dearly.
