    Karlie is gone

    Our last remaining Siameser, Karlie, went to the Bridge this morning. She was about 14..... she had a bum start, adopted out of a NJ PetSmart with a mouth full of ossifying epulis, gum over-growths that made it difficult for her to eat.... two major surgeries later she was fine, but decided she only wanted to use her few remaining teeth on dry cat food- never ate wet food or people food, ever. She was typically noisy, demanding to have food taken out of the bowl and placed on the table for her, or walking around and around me (ALWAYS counter-clockwise) bellowing to be picked up and put on my shoulder. Two nights ago she showed up in the kitchen having some difficulty walking- her legs didn't seem all in control. She went to the vets and they discovered a UTI, an upper respiratory infection, and FeLV- which she'd been immunized against, we're sure. The next day, on antibiotics and fluids, she perked up a bit- but the next morning, she had a bad seizure- and we decided it was time for her. She was almost unresponsive when I got to the vet's- she couldn't even grab my shoulder with all her claws, like she always liked to...... she went peacefully....... God, I'm gonna miss that little Meezer.....but she had a GOOD, long life...... I hope she knew I was with her to the last..... rest well and play at the Bridge, Karlie girl........
    I'll try to find a good pic of her to post here- she was a typically cross-eyed sealpoint, and very beautiful.......

    I am so very sorry about your loss of dearest Karlie. What a beautiful, wonderful cat, what a good friend. You and she adopted each other many years ago, when she had many medical problems. You brought her home and restored her health with your loving care. You've shared many lovely happy years together.

    Then at her time you let her go peacefully. She knows how much you love her and were with her right to the end. She is healthy and whole again at the Rainbow Bridge now, playing with many other beloved friends, a glorious Angel who will welcome you Home when it's your time..

    You were - are always - the best of friends. She will always be walking around you counterclockwise, talking loudly Meezer-style, riding on your shoulder.

    Deepest sympathy to you, bowlkat, and to all who love her and miss her and grieve her so much. May your precious memories and keepsakes help to bring you comfort.

    Rest in peace, dearest Karlie. Please send some purrs to the heart of your dear bowlkat, as a reassurance that all is well, love is eternal, and you are always together.

    I'm so sorry you have lost your dear Karlie. Even if she a good long life, it's always difficult to say goodbye. It sounds like she has had a wonderful life with you, now she is resting on the RB, and later she will find new friends there and send you a sign that she's okay.

    Rest in peace, Karlie - you will be in your mom's heart forever.

    (((hugs)))

    I know that Miquelito will meet Karlie and be her escort on the way to the Rainbow Bridge.
    It is so sad to lose a Great Cat, life never really can ever be the same.
    I know that Karlie will find a great place where you can all meet again.
