Welcome to Kitty Heaven

Simon 8/29/04 - 2/20/10

Sigh. I have been preparing myself emotionally for months to handle the upcoming death of my Katie, my little tortie who was diagnosed with kidney failure early in June 2009. She's beating the odds and showing no signs of giving up any time soon.

This morning when I got up Simon was laying on the floor barely breathing. I rushed him to the vet and it is believed he had a pulmonary embolism. He was euthanized about 30 minutes after getting to the vet's office.

So dear Simon now up in Kitty Heaven, I know you're raising hell up there with your incessant talking and desire to be top cat on the hierarchial ladder. Go get 'em! I miss your voice even though it did annoy me at times, and Bailey says if he'd known you were going to leave us so soon that he would have been nicer to you and maybe even let you be top cat...for a day.

I love you Simon and will miss you.
