R.I.P Taps (1991-2010)

Today I had to say goodbye to my furry friend who has been with me since my freshman year of high school. I have known that one day I would have to say goodbye and let him go to the rainbow bridge. Back in October 2004 I thought it was going to be then. This is when we found out he had kidney disease and was given 6 months to a year. Well, my main man sure showed them up now didn't he. I made the decision Tuesday that I was going to help him to bridge so that he would no longer be in discomfort. I know in my heart it was the kindest thing I could have done for him. Yet, I sit here and wonder how do you thank a furry friend for everything they have helped you with in there own way. One who has been with you on break ups with boyfriends, moves, marriage, a loss of a pregnancy, andthe birth of a two legged sibling. Let's not forget the acceptance of having new furry family members moving in. I guess the only way is to let them know how much you love them when they need your comfort the most. I have 2 of my furry boys at the bridge waiting for me now. I know Taps is now no longer in any discomfort/pain and his little body is healthy again. Most likely chasing mice, rooling in the grass, eating catnip and chilling with Shamy. I will miss you my honey cat. You will not be me forgotten by me. Rest in peace Taps 1-1991/11-04-2010
