Rest in peace, sweet baby πŸ’”

Sadly, we had to let our Precious kitty go on Wednesday. She was not recovering from her dental procedure as we hoped. We were blessed with a wonderful dental vet who listened to our concerns and did her best to provide the care we needed for our kitty. She even consulted with a colleague in California the night before our clinic appointment. Given Precious’s health situation, there was probably more going on. The colleague felt that Precious may have Valley Fever or cancer, neither one treatable in her case.

Letting her go was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. She was the one who comforted me when we lost her buddy Shadow four years ago and I miss her terribly.

Although we feel confident we made the right decision, our home is very lonely without her. It is amazing how so many parts of our home remind us of our baby. I am so blessed with a caring husband to comfort me through this process.

Pets are the world to me. I think they are the most obvious manifestations of divine love that we are going to see this side of eternity.
~Anne Lamott

If God brings our pets back to life, it wouldn’t surprise me. It would be just like Him. It would be totally in keeping with His generous character… Exorbitant. Excessive. Extravagant in grace after grace. Of all the dazzling discoveries and ecstatic pleasures heaven will hold for us, the potential of seeing Scrappy would be pure whimsy-utterly, joyfully, surprisingly superfluous… Heaven is going to be a place that will refract and reflect in as many ways as possible the goodness and joy of our great God, who delights in lavishing love on His children.
