Stomach cancer

I will miss you Sydney.

Tonight we put down our cat, Sydney. She had stomach cancer. This afternoon she was sitting in my lap and now...she's gone. It's amazing the emptiness a pet leaves when they are gone. The house feels empty, her food bowl sits there undisturbed, her catnip mouse lies in the corner. I miss her so much. She was a shy kitty. I mostly saw her at night, once Grace was in bed. She would come and sit with me, quietly purring. A warm weight on my legs. But tonight...nothing. I'm left only with warm tears running down my cheeks.

My only comfort - she is with my other kitty, Gabriel. They used to sleep together. Now, I hope they lay once more, in each others arms...
