Last Wednesday shortly after midnight died our Stubsy, one of our beloved cats. 9 years of our life we could go the way together. Now the end of the road has come. What remains is emptiness, sorrow, pain, tears, and the many beautiful memories of a very nice time together and in a very intimate relationship.
At their birth, I can still remember exactly. Her mother brought her to the world with her siblings under the chair in our living room. After the birth, she was pretty weak and my wife has then done everything to take care of her and she had success.
She was very affectionate and cuddly from the beginning and her favorite place was on the shoulders or on the lap. In the evening when I came home from the office, she has waited along with my wife to me and was always very happy to see me.
The last few months she was already not so good. She had a tumor and had to undergo surgery. The surgery but she has survived. Nevertheless, their overall condition has deteriorated overall slow. Then there came to kidney problems.
Last weekend, her condition has greatly deteriorated then. It was at times apathetic, often winced, ate and drank almost nothing. We tried to feed her and give her water with a syringe. Monday evening we were at the vet again. She still got 2 syringes and it also gave the impression as if it's getting her slowly better. On Tuesday she was sick again and vet gave her an infusion. Nevertheless, a few hours later, she died in the arms of my son who selflessly took care ofher in the last days to her life .
Since then we feel empty inside and have nothing more to desire. Our world was a better world through her, but now it is no longer the same world. Stubsy leaves a big gap in our lives and she never will be forgotten.
For us she was a gift from God.
With this in mind....
