Yesterday we had to say goodbye to Kit. She could no longer eat and was getting very weak. She was in constant pain. So we made the very difficult decision to put her to sleep.
She has been my friend and companion for 13 years. She always knew when something was wrong with me and would curl up close and offer comfort. She was playful and snooty at times too, but was always loving.
There were times when she sounded like a freight train when she galloped from one end of the house upstairs to the other. She would run at top speed, thumping her feet on the wooden floor as hard as she could, making it resound like a drum. She did it just for the fun of it to please herself at what a fearsome sound she could make..
She was part of our family and will be missed for a long, long time.
