Good Bye, Magic Cat
My Tuesday Truth today is: Black Magic Cat has fallen asleep, never to wake again.
I found Magic at the local Humane Society and fell in love with her. I brought her home on December 18, 2004. For eight years she was my writing companion. She was the friendliest cat I’ve ever known. She never met a person or a bowl of food she didn’t like. When I adopted her, I was told she was about 5 or 6 years old. She had health problems from the start, and about two months ago she had a stroke. The vet said then that it was only a matter of time before she died. Yesterday she seemed to lose control of her bodily functions. Today I brought her into the vet, and Dr. Tammy said Magic would never improve. It was my choice, but she said I had to consider Magic’s quality of life. It was hard, but I decided to have Magic put to sleep. I held her and petted her while she fell peacefully asleep. I will miss her. I had already decided that Rose will have a cat in Wolf’s Princess. Don’t be surprised if the cat is named Magic.
