About four weeks ago our dear kitty Simba had a turn for the worse. She is in stage four kidney failure and is slowly dying. The vet said she is not in any pain, but seeing her lose weight rapidly makes us wonder.
It just amazes me how much love a little furry friend can give. Simba sleeps under my arm each and every night and I'm going to miss that more than anything. The sound of her soft purr, her silky coat and the way she would pad her paws against my rather padded chest.
She has only days left and we are left trying to decide when that day will be. I know I need to be the strong one here, for my husband and my daughter. William is still a little young to totally understand what is happening.
Keep our dear Simba in your thoughts over the next few days. She has given us more love than you can imagine. The only condolence is that she will be with her best friend and sister Picki soon.
UPDATE - as of Monday 1st March, Simba our dear kitty is still with us. Thank you for all the lovely messages. It's so good to hear there are so many other animal lovers out there.
