Goodbye Tenley
One of our cats, Tenley, developed cancer somewhat recently. We'd gotten a tumor removed from her a few months ago, but we knew it was likely more would come back. She got to the point where she wasn't eating and had lost a lot of weight. She would still cheer up if we came to pet her, and she really like the attention, but you could hear it in her voice and her purr that she was really struggling.

Today, my wife called me at work and said she'd taken a turn for the worse, and that it was time. She brought her body back so that the girls could see her when they came back from school and say goodbye. My daughters helped me bury her by the big tree in the back yard.

Goodbye, Tenley.

Your pal Sonja misses you already, as do the rest of us.

I am very sorry. It's hard to say goodbye to part of the family.

It's hard to lose them; harder still to have to decide when.

It is so hard when you have to let one go. She was a beautiful cat and lucky to have such a good home.

What a beautiful cat! Are you going to get Sonja a new pal?

You have such a wonderful home for cats, and while it is very hard to lose one, there are so many out there in dire need of homes...
