In the coming week it will be one year since my heart cat Sammy left us for the rainbow bridge. If love could have kept her with us, she still would be here. But I know she is at a better place now, and that she is free of her old body.
I will always remember her last day, I felt I had to let her go. One last time we snuggled up together, she laid on my tummy until I noticed her body had become limp and she had slipped into a kind of coma. She felt cool to the touch, and we covered her with a blanket.
When it was time to go to bed, I placed her next to me, between us. I was about to turn out the light, when her breathing changed, and then suddenly she stopped breathing, and it was over. It was so peaceful. But I still miss her.
Like on the picture above, Sammy liked to lie in our bed with us, and we all enjoyed this so much. She will never be forgotten, that’s for sure.
