I really don't want to write this. I still don't think I believe it's true. We had to say goodbye to Monica last Friday. It was the hardest decision I've ever had to make and one that I really don't ever wish to repeat. We took her to the dr. because she had been getting sick every once in a while and we were not prepared for how quickly she would deteriorate after that visit. It turned out that she had liver cancer and there really wasn't much we could do for her. I am so sad. She was such a wonderful kitty and I still remember the day that she just decided she was going to come live with us. Well, she was wonderful but rotten. I already miss the way she would chew up everything (my shoes, electrical cords, the $200 monitor antenna), the way she would mooch for food at every meal, the way she was always under your feet when you were in the kitchen, the way she brought home live bunnies, snakes, chipmunks, birds, moles, mice... (ok I don't really miss that part, but it won't be the same without her), the way she always begged to be petted and would then bite you. She was definitely a personality and I can't believe that she is gone. She did live a good long life but we didn't get enough time with her. We love you so much Monica and you are already so missed!
