|From a few years ago, Lydia holding Simone|
Today Simone crossed to the Rainbow Bridge at 11:45 am. I am glad I was here to be with her as she slipped away. She didn't suffer and I was able to pet her till the end. She was such a loving devoted kitty. I'm so glad I had her in my life and that she chose me. I will always remember how she was the last from the litter to move from the line of kittens. All the kittens went in different directions; she came straight to me like a little turtle going to the sea. We've been inseperable since that day. I never had to worry about her wandering off, a low whistle or jingle of my keys and she would be there. For the last few days, I've held her and loved her the best I could. I'm pleased to note she had one of her favorite foods before going on...cheddar cheese and doritos (she would lick those clean and crunch them up in her youth). I still can't believe she is gone. I told her it was all right if she did and I will miss her. I told her if she could, get reborn as a kitten and we'll find each other again. Or just watch us from above.
I'm thankful for my other cats but there is a hole in my heart. Again, I'm so, so glad I was here for her. She's comforted me many times and it's only right for me to do the same. Good-bye, my lovely Gray Lady, my Simone-ia Begonia.
