My Siamese Cat Lucie

My Siamese cat Lucie was not my first cat, she was really my fourth.  However, she was one of the very best cats I have ever had.  She was beautiful, delicate, graceful and loving.  She was an excellent mother, not just to her own, but to other kittens.  She was very sensitive to my moods and would always sleep close to me.  When I meditated, she was always in my lap.  Spiritually, I think thst she was an advanced cat soul.  When she was about 12 yrs old, we discovered that she had multiple breast tumors.  The vet said she was too old for that extensive surgery, and to watch her.  After about a year of no serious developments in that, I found a large tumor on her hip.  The vet said it was not related to the breat tumors, and again to just watch her.  She didn't lose weight, or the ability to get around, there seemed to be no difference in her behavior. One night I noticed she was not with me in bed.  My son said that she was asleep in his closet.  That seemed strange.  The next day, all seemed normal.  The next night, again she slept in his closet.  The next AM, she was gone.  Curled up as if asleep in his closet.  I was devastated.  I don't think she suffered, but I also think she didn't want to upset us.  One of my younger cats grieved for her terribly, stayed under the bed, wouldn't groom herself, wouldn't eat for days.  I had to get her some tranquilizers.  Lucie had been a mother to her.  I still miss her sweet, loving presence a great deal.

I often feel that her angel spirit is around from time to time. And I see her in my dreams occasionally. She was a blessing.

My heart goes out to you! I have lost many pets this year, only one of which was my beloved Pom, Gizmo, who was, literally, my life force. I know everyone says this, but, she really is at peace now, but she will live in your heart forever. Regardless of what others say, take all the time you need to grieve. For some, like myself, it takes a while, but, i know, deep in my heart, my baby is happy and no longer in pain, and that is what gets me through the dark days. My prayers and thoughts are with you!

This is so sad. It reminds me of the loss of each and every one of my beloved cats through the years. Each one was special in their own way. Now I have 2 which at times actually give me a reason to live.
