I am so heartbroken. There are no words to describe how I am feeling. My dear cat Murphy has died. She was sick for quite a while; however, the way she passed away has left me shattered, distraught and devastated. She was walking out to the dining room and collapsed. I am not sure if she was having a heart attack or a stroke.
As I tried to revive her, she crawled to me, struggling to meow and breath. I looked at her and told her it was "ok" to go and I would see her in the next life.
She died immediately after.
As I struggle to wipe away the tears, my heart is heavier than ever. I remember my life with this precious, sentient being and can only question why good things don't last forever. Why her? And I have to admit, I feel as if I lost a family member.
With that said, they say it takes a moment to meet someone, a day to appreciate them, a week to like them, a month (or more?) to love them, but it takes an entire lifetime to forget them. Rest in Peace Murphy. I will never forget the amazing cat that you were in this lifetime and the impact you made in my life. You will be forever missed. Laid to rest: 2003-2017
