Daphne 2007-2017

July 17, 2017

We sent Daphne on her way this morning.  She had continued to get thinner and started eating less, and the tumor was a lot bigger even than it had been three weeks ago when the vet found it.  There really wasn’t anything we could do for her that her condition would support; she had been battling pseudomonas for two years and was debilitated from it.  She’d been spending more and more time alone in the basement lately, so her distinctive and bossy little personality was already partly extinguished.  I was thinking last night that it was too bad she didn’t come up on the bed anymore because I wouldn’t have any time to just hang out with her, but she came up this morning and so I had a little while to pet her and talk to her.

    We read about your sweet girl on Facebook just now. Though we haven’t ‘met’ you, we know how hard it is to say goodbye. Godspeed, Little one, and many purrs for those who are left behind.

    What a beautiful girl. It’s amazing to me how they know they are ready for the next part of the journey, she clearly wanted to spend a bit of quality time before her departure. So very sorry, I’m sure your heart is heavy with sadness. Peace from Laura and the Squeedunk Gang Coco, Valentina, Manhattan, Bessie, Lulu, Mimi and foster Picasso.

    I’m so sorry. Cancer is a horrible disease. I had a cat who died from atypical large cell lymphoma. It was such a short time–just two weeks–until I knew it was time to say goodbye. Deep compassion and condolences to you during this grief-ridden time.

    So sorry for your loss. We wish we had the opportunity to know Daphne. Her love willlive forever in your heart.

    We empathize with the loss of your Daphne, as do all who have lost a beloved furry. A warm hug of encouragement.

    I am sorry for your loss. A pretty girl with tons of cattitude, she’s still with you, in a different form 🙂

    What a beauty she was! I am so sorry you lost her, I know there must be a huge space in your heart where she was and she looks enchanting.

    RIP Daphne.

    It is an incredably selfless act, to let them go. I know how much it hurts. She Was so very lucky to have you.
    God’s speed, Daphne. Until you meet again, my prayers of comfort are with your family.
