Memories of Brandy
OUR BUNNY BRANDY SEPTEMBER 24, 2007
September 24, 07 my cat Brandy was put to rest. We elected to have her put to sleep, due to her failing health. She had a stroke and her right side was paralyzed. She could no longer walk. She didn't eat, and drank very little. The specialist said from the x-rays he was 99% certain she had a tumor on her brain, causing the paralysis, and 3 spots in her lungs, more then likely cancer.
I struggled with feelings that I made the wrong decision. But, given her health and the fact she couldn't walk, I was told it was the correct decision. It really hurts to decide on something so permanent.
I have to live with it now, there is no bring her back. It's not like I can change my mind. I feel like I should have stopped it right when the doctor started to put the needle in her back leg. She growled. Did she know what was happening? Did she sence something bad? I leaned over her as she passed, and whispered goodbye and that I loved her. Then it looked like she took her last breath. The doctor and asst told me how sorry they were, and how nice of a kitty she was. Then, I put her little body back in her bed that we brought her in.
About 12:15pm the man from the funeral home came with the box that Brandy would be taken in and be cremated. I picked her up out of her bed and laid her gently in the box and petted her one last time. I left from the room, and went home. The whole day seemed so different, I can't even describe it. It seemed my life had totally changed. It's very hard to explain...
Brandy was brought home around 6pm in a beautiful cat urn. The young man, from Santos Funeral Home, who brought her back was very sympatic, and even stood there and listened to me as I told him how it all went at the vet.
I hope Brandy is in a nice place now, where she can walk and run again.
She caught a bird once on the balcony of our apartment. She was about 2. She never really played much. But she loved to lie next to people and be petted. She wasn't real fond of being held. She hated sheets and blankets, when I would fold them she'd run. I never understood why she was afraid of them.
Brandy used to look at the wall a lot. She must of found that boring after some time as she started looking at me and Frank instead. It was strange. But it was Brandy.
It's been just over 6 months since we let Brandy go and I still have my Brandy moments. Reading this really brings me back to that day at the vet. Now, when I drive to the vet, the same way that I did on that day, it just brings me to tears. That day is still so vivid in my mind.
So to you Brandy (Bunny)--
I really miss you and I think Tiki does too, she just doesn't show it. You know she's always acting the tough kitty. I hope you are happy with all your new kitty friends.
I hope you are in a beautiful place, surrounded by flowers and plenty of green grass for you to eat. I hope there are lots of swings and kitty beds for you to lounge in. And that the sun is always warming your little bones.
I will always love you and keep your memories close to my heart. Daddy wants you to.. " Hold on tight to your dreams." Take care our little one.
Love you forever,
