Our sweet cat Diane is no longer with us. After months of coping with chronic renal failure and lymphoma, Diane was no longer eating and was not responding to her treatment. At the pet hospital this morning, she drifted off peacefully while we huddled close and stroked her gently.
Before Diane, I wasn’t much of a pet person. But this beautiful white cat with the blue-green eyes won me over. Ever since we adopted her when she was 2 years old, I always wished that I had known her as a kitten (as I’m sure she must have been the cutest little ball of white fuzz). But over the last 12 years, and most especially today, I realized that I was blessed to have known her at all. She was a sweet, loving and affectionate companion. We will always miss her dearly.
