Friday night my elder cat, Missy, passed away from kidney failure. She was 18 years old, 83 in human years. We had her for 17 of those 18 years. She was a very sweet cat, and will be missed greatly. Our other 5 cats feel the loss too, they are hanging close to me & looking for Missy. I made a small memorial quilt with the two photos I had if her. It hangs in my studio by the door. It will take me several weeks to get past the loss but I will move on but never forget her.
