Memories of Penny
I adopted sweet little Penny in 1990, from a non-kill shelter, when she was 6 months old. I don't know why at that moment but; of all the beautiful kitties there, Penny touched my heart. She wasn't friendly & outgoing like all the other kitties, she was scared and frightened. Penny had been up for adoption for many months and was considered "unadoptable" because she was so timid. I adopted her and for serveral days didn't even see her; she would hide from me too frightened that I would do her harm, only coming out when I went to work to eat. Over time, she grew to love and trust me and was a wonderful, sweet kitty, very gently and smart. She would always shy away from stangers but; her bond with me was very strong. Once she somehow "escaped" a neighbor called the Humane Society, she was there for a few day until I realized she was there. Penny sat at the back of the cage, looking so sad, when she heard my voice; she came excitedly to the front of the cage, and put her little paw out to touch my hand.
One of the staff member's said that she was glad that I found her because she would not have made it, since she was there she wouldn't eat, drink water or even sleep very long. I will always be gratefully for those additional three years that I had with her. In 2002, she started losing weight, her vet, had no idea what was causing this and ran many test, we found out much too late that she was suffering from IBD. Penny was on so many medications and given fluid subcutaneously every day, but; there was fluid in her lungs and it was so hard for my poor little Penny to breath.
I spent the last night with her next to my pillow, in the morning, we went outside to look at "her birds", who knew it would really be the very last time..I took her to another vet to get a second opinion, when I heard all that was wrong with her, I had to let her go, although it was the most difficult decision I have ever had to make. I said one last goodbye and kissed her sweet little head. Never again would I hear her "silent meows" or all the other special little ways that she touched my heart. Penny is still with me, when she went to the Bridge, she was cremated and is at home. It's been one year..I still kiss her urn and sometimes I lite a candle in her memory. I find comfort in knowing that Penny waits for me at the Rainbows end and that she is no longer suffering..rest well my dear, sweet Penny... November 2, 2004..there is not a day that goes by that I don't think about you Penny. I miss you so much!
