Memories of Nathia
Nathia was such a sweet, loving, fun and silly girl.
I adopted her from the Oregon Humane Society on June 13th 2021. She came to Portland Oregon from Mt Shasta California, Siskiyou Humane society in the second chance rescue program. She had been in and out of the shelter and we don't know a lot about her past. We knew she had been first brought in with her four sweet kittens and she was a wonderful Mommy. We think someone she was with for some time was kind to her because she wanted to be with and adores people, but she did have some trust issues at first and that's because she had been neglected, likely living alone and on her own for a while and clearly abused. She had a bullet lodged in her chest for the rest of her life. I cry so hard thinking about what my sweet precious angel endured out there.
She was almost sixteen when I adopted her and she had a few health issues which we managed with good veterinary care and medication and a prescription diet. On June 1st of this year she was diagnosed with aggressive pancreatic cancer. There was no cure or treatment. My heart broke. We adjusted the meds she was on, added a pain medication and spoiled her all we could. We stopped her prescription diet and let her have what ever she wanted as long as it wasn't toxic to cats. She even had Filet Mignon with us to celebrate my Dads ninety first birthday. My sweet girl hung on so long but the morning of July 1st it was so clear I needed to let her go. It killed me to make the appointment. She died in my arms. Its more than two weeks later that I write this... It's been so hard.. My Nathia had a tough life and she didn't deserve that.
I'm not just hurting because her life is over and I miss her so much but I feel like I'm grieving for her for all those years she didn't have love and was abused and alone. I'm blessed she was with me for two years and two weeks. I was with her 24/7 and I did everything I could so she would know how deeply she is loved. She sure loved us back. My sweet angel. My Nathia.
Thank you all for your kind messages. I do read and appreciate each one so much... I just have been too choked up to respond or say anything until now. I miss my sweet angel. My Nathia.
