by Sweetie, blogger and sad cutiepie,
Good morning, dear friends.
We are saddened that our friend Sadie has passed. She was adopted by Grammy's friend, our Aunty Lynda. Age unknown. Previous health record also unknown. But from this point on Sadie the beautiful calico would live the good life - food in her bowl, fresh water too, litterbox always kept fresh - and loads of places to lay her head and snooze. Her favourite was snuggled atop the sofa, or better yet, atop mommy on a blanket. And she was loved and adored. It was a life to be cherished, a life of ease and comfort.
For years there was only one downside to Sadie's life. That was when Grammy visited. Sadie would go on high alert. She knew there was a very good chance nails would be trimmed. This was not appreciated by Sadie. Not at all. And yet, it was a necessity to prevent her getting caught up in blankets and clothing. Despite this the challenge was on. Each time it became a little harder to find Sadie - under the blankets on the bed? under the bed? in the back corner of her wee condo? who knows where? She was a mistress of disappearing.
In her later years illness visited Sadie with a vengeance. She had stomach issues that for a time were controlled by diet but as she aged these became harder to manage. Add on that she was going blind and often got disoriented and life became a sad litany of meows - Hunger? food was in the normal place. - Fear? where am I? where are you, mom? - Pain? … it was hard to tell, but finally her quality of life had diminished and a decision had to by made.
It is with great sadness we tell you...that time had come for Aunty Lynda to let her sweet Sadie go. We send our condolences to our dear aunty and hope she feels our comforting purrs across the city.
