Goodbye Lizzie

Hi Crafters,

It's been a sad day, coming to terms with saying goodbye to Lizzie our rescue cat who we have loved for fourteen years, she was so much a part of our family. 
At 17 I knew this time would come but she had 3 seizures yesterday and we couldn't watch her suffer anymore.
She had such a lovely nature and did funny and endearing things so I'd like to share this picture of her doing just that...
..resting her head on a tennis ball!

Each time over the past 32 years when I have had to make the decision that keeping them would only be for my benefit I just look back at the joy and happiness they have brought into my life and knew it was the right decision. The pain for us is fortunately a short lived thing, the happy memories last forever.
My thoughts are with you Lorraine x
