I'm so sorry to hear of the passing of your beautiful kitty. I looked at your photo album, and what a lovely creature she was. I will be praying for her peaceful passage to the West where she will surely be welcomed by Bast. Praying for you also during this difficult time ((hugs)). May Bast bring you comfort and blessings for the good home you provided your dear cat for so many years.

I'm so sorry to hear that your cat died.  It seems you just can't fight kidney failure, and when it's time it's time.  When I lose a cat, as a memorial I get another cat who would not ordinarily have been adopted (often due to advanced age).  It seems to be the right thing to do.  Of course, that's letting yourself in for more kidney failure down the line...Anyhow it seems to please Bast and I'm sure it pleases the elderly cat, too.

Minyassa, I'm so sorry for your loss. It's never easy to lose a loved animal. (But, don't shave your eyebrows!!).It would be interesting to know where that "custom" originated, but if your cat is anything like any of mine have been, she would either be shocked and run away at the sight of "not you", ( eeek!), or giggle in a cat sort of way. And that was in no way intended to belittle your loss - I still cry over my last cat, Phoenix, who died three years ago. XXX Much love to you.

Many prayers for you and your beloved feline.

(Incidentally, about eyebrows, I do pluck mine and it seems within a few days I am having to do it again.)

Trust me, eyebrows grow back! I got trichotilomania. It is like nail bitting but instead when we get stressed etc., we pull out our hair. I suffer from this. My eyebrows were the first to go. I haven't had them for almost 4 or 5 years now. They keep comming back, but i end up pulling em out anyway. :(

its a very hard habit to break, especially since its a stress reaction. So ya u will look different, but they come back.

Also, lol, i joked around saying I should just get a cat then i have an excuse!
LIVE AND LET LIVE!!!
