Goodbye Karma Lou...

The weekend didn't go quite as planned.
I spent time rocking and comforting a sick Karma.
This morning she died.

I am thinking of my Mother, as Karma was one of her creatures. I am sorry for the hurt that comes with loving...and loss. I am sad about the short life span of our furry friends.

Karma was an odd cat from the first day...Mom saved her from a life of "stray-dom" about 8 years ago. She seemed a little unwell right from the start. Probably from her time as a wild one...We are unsure of her age. Before Mom got her spayed she would bray and bleat like a barnyard animal, it was so funny. She liked my boyfriends better than me. She shed her pure white fur at astounding rates. She loved to be up on the roof of Moms house, or in the most unusual spaces, as seen in my earlier post...She was a good cat with an even temper...She will be buried next to a hamster under a maple tree, I think she'd like it there.
Thanks for the purrs Karma Noodle.

I am too sorry for the hurt that comes with loving but Karma doesn't see it that way...she had a good life, a thankful life, and she would not have had it any other way...in her remembrance, she will always remain your mom's lovely kitty...condolences to your mom

oh good Lord what a sad post!!!! I always cry when I read someone's pet dies. My baby Scarlette needs to live forever...I really don't know what I'll do when that day comes. She is my heart. I'm sorry for you and your mom. :(

So sorry about the loss of Karma, our fur friends become so much part of our lives, that their absence
is painful. My condolences to you and your Mother.

So sorry to hear this, Andrea.

What joy our furry friends give us just by being. We love them for them, not because of what they achieve or do, but because of how much they love us (or our boyfriends). And they love us for that same, singular reason. They really don't stay with us long enough, but they certainly are a testament to the truest sort of love.

Thank you everyone...So much.
I'll pass on the words to my Mom.
