Saying Farewell To My Dear Feline!
Posted by Karl Robb
I realize that I am off the topic of Parkinson’s Disease, but I feel this should be shared–my next posting will be back on topic–Thank You!
It is National Dog Day but I am writing for my cat, Shadow, who has left us. For 15 years, she looked after us. She taught us trust, patience, determination, and displayed a sense of grace, right up to her death. She lost an eye to Cancer almost 6 years ago and bounced back an hour after a life-altering surgery. Resilient. Resilient. Resilient.
She returned every bit of love that we ever gave her. Her confidence and ability to adapt never ended, even when she faced her final struggle.
She willed be missed, but never forgotten. Rest in peace, Shadow, dear.
