Anyone who knows me at all and anyone who reads this blog regularly knows how much I love my pets. In fact, I just listed my love of animals as one of seven things to know about me. So you will know that losing one of my pets is heartbreaking for me. This one was particularly difficult.
Luna was only six, and as far as we knew, she was healthy and feeling fine. Nothing seemed wrong—-she was playful, eating, purring, and being her always sweet and affectionate self. But something was wrong with her heart, and without warning, she died in her sleep earlier this week.
I have written more about Luna here Luna pdf for anyone who is interested. There is a slideshow of her life with her brother Smokey (the gray and white one) and her canine companion Cassie and some of her people here. I wrote and created these because they help me deal with losing her, so I am not posting the full text here or a lot of pictures, but I am including the links here so I have a record myself and can look back when I want.
For anyone who is also a cat lover, you should know that she was one of the very special ones.
