Thank you all for your comforting words. I feel like I have an elephant sitting on my heart. I love that little cat something fierce. It's hard to imagine going forward without her... partly because her medical care was so ingrained into my daily routine and, of course, because she was my heart cat. She helped me through the deaths of two friends, my mom's battle with cancer, a break up, and many smaller heartaches. I guarantee her fur saw more tears than rain (not that it'd take much since, aside from the Swamp Kat adventure, she really didn't like to go outside).
My Pretty, Pretty Princess gave me all she had and then some. I firmly believe she held on these last two days solely for me and I was just too blind (perhaps willfully so) to see it. Though she didn't feel well the past few days, she was peaceful until about 2ish this morning. It then became all too apparent that it was time.
My vet, sweet man that he is, sent me a flower at work today. I am reminded more and more why I trust him with the care of my pets, not only is he extremely knowledgeable, he is very compassionate.
Thank you again for your comments.
If I could I would give you a hug, and maybe the kitty that is trying to live here!
Oh Tonya I'm so very sorry for your loss and I'm very grateful that I had the chance to meet her. I remember when I was ill while visiting you - she never left my side, sleeping on the bed with me all night and all the next day. Thank you K-Cee for being my furry nurse for a short time.
RIP Mz Kissy Kat. I know that you will watch over your human and keep her safe.
We are so sorry to hear that K'Cee has passed on.It is always hard when one of Our Senior Cats who we have loved for years has gone on.
But it is a decision that sometimes we have to make out of our love for our friends and companions.
K'Cee is with our our Awesome Angels now getting he wings of silver and gold , and will stop by to see how you are doing .
You will be reunited in love in Paradise.
One Fine Day:love:
Your loss is felt so deeply by all of us. K'Cee "wasn't special" - she "still is" special. That much love and energy doesn't get exchanged and then just fade away. She is there with you Tonya and she will wait for you too.
All of us suffer your loss and wish we could take it away. I do feel that Phred has taken charge and K'Cee is being treated exactly like the royal princess that she is................:love::love:
Tonya, I am so sorry for your loss. :( :( RIP Kissy Cat! You will be missed!!
I'm very sorry about K'Cee.:( May she RIP.
zippy-kat, I wanted to share this wonderful memory of K'Cee. I hope it gives you a smile.

Tonight, for the first time ever, I spotted a strange stealthy creature swimming through my backyard...
As it lifted it's head for a breath of air, I quickly snapped a pic...
But the flash from my camera must have frightened this elusive creature...
Not frightened for long though! Another fantastic shot of the beastie!
And Phred's post:
Not wishing to distract or detract from the Beauty of the Swamp Kat...
