Sparrow 2004?-2019

April 13, 2019

We let Sparrow go today, she’s been getting gradually weaker and less happy. The vet said she thought Sparrow was 14 or 15. She was already kind of a mess by the time we took her in off the street in August 2017, and I feel bad that we could never make her a healthy lively cat again, but the vet agreed that there was some underlying disease keeping her down.  When I was looking through my pictures for some to add here, I could see right away how much she’d deteriorated.

She was an odd little cat – at various times I called her my attachment-disorder cat or my dementia kitty because she was just different from all the others in how she interacted.  Because I hadn’t known her long it was harder to read her and decide how she was really feeling.  At least for 18 months she had a warm radiator to sleep on and warm food to eat. RIP little Sparrow, sorry we couldn’t make you better.

    You gave her a good home as long as you could. We imagine she was grateful and happy there. We know you loved her and miss her. Warm hugs.

    Sparrow was blessed with your company for two whole years. She was not left alone and unloved. She knew she mattered even if she couldn’t tell you in the right way.

    Bless you Sparrow, fly free now.
