    I hate to burden you.
    My girl Sophia is gone...
    Took her a glass of ice cubes
    She loved a glass of cubes
    Hour later heard her making sounds
    She walked across the room
    Gone

    18 years
    Helping me garden
    Sitting with me for News and Jeopardy
    Sleeping in my arm pit
    Zooming up trees

    Friday was vacuum day
    She'll never run from the Hoover again....

    All you guys know
    Some nice
    Some not so...

    Sorry not to have something more original to say, but she has rested. She is happy for her life with you.

    Quite sad to read of this. A pet leaving us is most difficult.

    There are better days ahead.

    That’s an awful shame. I know how hard it is to lose a cat that’s been a close companion for so many years.

    And from the picture, she looked like a wonderful cat.

    You have my deepest sympathies.

    Pets are a treasure, but we only get to enjoy them for a brief time. I hope the memories of the time you shared with Sophia continue to provide you with comfort.

    So sorry for your loss. Pets are family so it's always hard to lose one. Prayers for you and Sophia.
