In yesterday’s post, I remarked that it has been a tough week. The reason it has been so tough is because we had to say good-bye to our kitty Azria.
Azria was a respectable 16 years old and I had her for 7 years before our first child was born.
I also called her ‘Azzy-boo’, ‘Boo-bear’ and the ever popular ‘Crazy ole’ bat’.
She was always my constant early morning companion and the past few mornings, it has been made me sad to sit here in the wee hours without her.
This is also the first time that our children have had to experience loss and losing a furry family member has been painful, as you would expect.
As the kids noticed her health declining substantially, I encouraged them to make her a card sharing their feelings for her.
In my card, I wrote: ‘My Dearest Azzy, may you romp and chase all the foil balls your little heart desires and do so with no pain. We love you forever!’
