The day we had to say good-bye to our sweet, Murphy.
I wasn't ready.
I'm never ready to say "Good-bye".
I'm more of a "I'll see you soon" kinda girl.
But, yesterday when the kids and I got home from running errands, they called me to come upstairs and look at her. She was sitting in my daughter's room and when I looked at her eyes, I knew. One of them was completely dialated and the other was still skinny.
She looked so pitiful and I knew.
Thankfully, one of the mom's from my daughter's gym is a vet, so I gave her a call.
Then I called Daddy and he said he'd meet us there.
I won't go into all the details, but she confirmed that Murphy was indeed very sick. She could feel a tumor in her tummy area.
We had come to this conclusion before we took her in, so we knew the end result.
It was a very peaceful procedure and Daddy was with her til the end. I just couldn't do it, but I'm so thankful he did.
Now, we're left to go on with life without that sweet kitty lap surfing every evening and I'm thankful that we still have Chase to keep my mind off of that.
Here are a few pictures of our beautiful Murphy - she is missed terribly.
I'm still here. I've just had a lot of irons in the fire and haven't felt like organizing them enough to post.
But, don't worry - I'm slowly coming out of hibernation.
It's Springtime now - although it doesn't actually feel like it today.
I love Spring.
I was finally able to spend last Saturday working out in the yard. My arms can tell. They're sore.
Here are a few glimpses of what we've been up to this month:
New rug. Too small for this space? Let me know your thoughts. I just loved the colors & can always find somewhere else to use it.
We've finally been painting. I'll have a complete post on this soon (I hope).
I've been worried about my 17 year old kitty, Murphy. She's on her last leg and I'm trying to know the best way to handle her last days. She's not in any noticable pain so I'm not sure if it's time to put her to sleep or not. Any advice or similiar stories would be appreciated. She's extremely skinny now and hardly eating at all.
Spring is slowly blooming inside our house as well. Here's a glimpse.
Yay for grilling season! (man that chair needs a good coat of paint - it's on the list & hopefully will get done soon).
Hope y'all are doing well and thanks for stopping by.
