Sleep With The Angels, Little Itchy

She wandered into our lives about ten years ago, a cute little stray who made her way into the home of my Mom, Dad, and sister. She was not really my cat, but I loved her ooodles.

A few months ago, she was diagnosed with cancer. Surgery would have been very expensive, and if the vet found spreading, he would have put her down. None of us could bear the thought of that, so she was brought home to live out the remainder of her days in peace. Most of those days were good. Itchy was quite the fighter.

In the last week or so she took a turn for the worse. We knew that her days were extremely numbered. At about 8 PM tonight she let out a loud cry. I scooped her into my arms and rocked her gently. She died peacefully in my arms with the entire family who she loved so much gathered around.

We know that you loved us, Itchy, and you fought long and hard to stay with us. We will never forget you and your valiant kitty spirit!
