Goodbye Betty

Wednesday morning Betty suffered from a blood clot. She started shaking like she was having a seizure, she cried out then she was gone. It happened so fast I didn't understand what had happened. I didn't want to accept that my sweet kitty who would have been 4 in March was gone, but she was. I called Clarke and he came home from work, we buried her in the backyard.
It's still hard to believe that she is really gone. Just a couple weeks ago we were saying how she had finally adjusted to having Chloe here, she was using her litter box again, she seems like her old self. Now we have to adjust to her not being here anymore.

The last 2 days have been so hard for us. We took her things and put them in the attic because we just can't look at them anymore. But her favorite window looks so bare now, the place where her food and water bowl used to be is empty and the house is so quiet during the day. I really miss her so much.

We always said she was our first baby. She turned Clarke into a cat person. She really was a good cat. I'll always remember how she loved the Christmas tree. She loved watching the birds at the big bay window in the kitchen. She always sat on the same spot by me on the couch. She either slept right by my head at night or on her window perch in our bedroom. Recently she would follow me into Chloe's room when I nursed her at night. I have written 40 posts about her on this blog. I can't believe this will be the last. I thought Chloe would get to know her, but she never will.
Goodbye Betty, we loved you so much and I wish you didn't have to go so soon. I wasn't ready for you to leave us just yet, it's way too soon. I'll always love you and I'll never forget you. Rest in peace sweet baby.
