Good kitty.

Photo above: the best place in the world.

Those of you in the previous post's comment thread who said she would let us know when it was time were right. She declined rapidly over Saturday night and Sunday.
We took her to the vet today at 1:00. The staff were gentle and professional and caring and made it as easy as such a terrible thing can be. She was very quiet and peaceful, and the last words she heard were her dad and I saying "good kitty". Because she was, she was a very good kitty. She held up her part of the bargain.

And I believe we held up ours, too.

Goodbye Veronica. Good kitty.

You'll have to excuse me, now. My heart is broken.

No excuses necessary, no solace possible for a while. Love to you all.

No words. Sherwood said it all. Thinking of you, Husband, and Mojo.

I'm very sorry, Ronnie. I have been a follower of Veronica & Mojo for quite a while now. I have been where you are several times now, and it never gets easier. All I can say is she knew she was safe and loved to the very last moment.

Very sorry, it is a heartbreaker. I think it's supposed to be.

Thank you so much everyone. I'm sorry I don't have any eloquent words - I don't have any words at all, really - but your own mean so much to us. I never understood before how much condolences help at a time like this. Thank you.

Sorry for your loss. Our furry family members remain in our hearts even after they are gone. I tell folks "they left their pawprint on my heart".

Thinking of you!
