R.I.P. my precious kitty...

I planned to have another post up yesterday but lately I haven't been feeling like doing my nails. My cat, Tikal has been really sick for a few weeks now. (Not the cat I posted pictures of in this post.) I've had this cat for eight years now and she has always been healthy. The vet took blood and figured out she had Inflammatory Bowel Disease.  She hasn't kept any food down the past for almost the past week and she won't keep medicine down either. All she can do is drink water. Saturday my mom took her to the vet to be put to sleep... Part of me is sad to loose her but another part of me is relieved. She has experienced nothing but pain lately and it was extremely painful for me to see her suffering.

Its heartbreaking to see her everyday, barely moving. She used to be so active...she couldn't stay inside for too long. A dead mouse would be left on our porch (or somewhere around the outside of our house) every few days. Across the street from the side of our house is a large field and a hill. If you go over that hill you will see a small pond and further back, someones house. My kitty loved to go to that field, she loved to sit next to the pond. If I ever wanted to find her she was usually there.

Sorry about the depressing post, but I really wanted to write about this as well as share the pictures I took of her special place. R.I.P. Tikal... I miss you.

Thanks for reading...
Peace and Love,


  1. Oh, sweet kitty. So sorry for you loss. It's so hard to let a pet go even when you know it's the best thing for them.

  2. RIP :( this makes me sad - I have 3 cats that i love too much and knowing this lost it even hurt me :(

  3. R.I.P. I'm so sorry for your loss...:-(

  4. I'm so sorry for your loss of Tikal. It really is hard but its good to know that you did all you could and you let her out of her pain and suffering in the end. I went through this with my kitteh, Topaz, about two months ago. Its the hardest thing in the World to make those decisions. My partner and I went through all the pictures we had of Topaz and talked about her after she was gone...I hope whatever you choose to do to remember Tikal keeps your heart warm.

  5. I'm so sorry to hear that :( It is better that she isn't hurting anymore. I love kitties, this makes me sad :( Was she named after the Sonic character?

  6. Thanks so much everyone... I'm doing better than I thought I would. Its comforting knowing she is no longer hurting. It was horrible seeing her so sick everyday.

    @Annamax: Yes, she was named after Tikal from Sonic. You're practically the only one who has gotten that! She was a pretty minor character though.

  7. Your post is a beautiful tribute. Lots of love to you at this time. xoxo!

  8. *hugs* I am sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing a part of your cats life with us. Cats have a special place in my heart and it always pains me to hear about a beloved kitty family member passing.

  9. I am so sorry to hear about your kitty. ((hugs))
