Well the very next day, we had to have our dear cat euthanased. Sooki, aged 13, had a cancerous tumour on her nose, which, despite painkillers, was giving her grief. The light was fast disappearing from her eyes, and her quality of life was declining. More sadness. I didn't expect my reaction. Such a little, quiet cat had such a huge presence in our lives. Even though she slept most of the time towards the end, we were always conscious of her and her movements, her life force. Our routine revolved around hers. Now the house seems so much emptier without her. My husband says she was our butterfly effect. She came in to our lives, changed us, loved us, taught us life lessons and moved on. As with most pets, she truly lived in the moment. Her affection and spirit were enormous. We'll never forget her, she was one of a kind. May you rest in peace Sooki.
