I had to say goodbye today to a very good friend. Tigger has been sick for quite sometime, and it has gotten worse recently. We decided as a family that it was for the best. We had to put Tigger down. She was 16 years old. She was my cat from the day we got her from the SPCA, she slept with me every night, she was my buddy, I told her everything, she was the best listener I knew! When we got married, we decided it would be best for her to stay with my parents and Dodger.
We are all quite sad, it was the toughest decision I've ever been a part of, but it is for the best, Tiggy just wasn't herself anymore. I was there as she took her last breath and saw her last heartbeat, that was incredibly hard, but I just had to be there with her, I didn't want her to be scared. She went peacefully. And now she is hanging out with Smokey, and I know they are having a good time in Kitty Heaven.
