We are putting Julie down

We are putting Julie down Saturday.
Julie is our eighteen year old cat. We have had her almost all of those eighteen years. A year or two ago, she went blind. Now she has a tumor on her shoulder blade that is splitting the skin. She is very happy right now.
I never used to hold her, she only let Dad hold her. She is really his cat. But now that she is blind, let her sniff and she will let anyone she knows hold her.
So very affectionate. I love her so much! She just sits in your arms and purrs, and rubs against you, and…it is so delightful to hold a cat that thinks the world of you. We have had her all my life. I can’t even imagine a day without her! This is going to be incredibly hard. I just can’t believe we are actually putting her down! I am hoping to get a kitten, from my cousins, or otherwise, but nothing could replace Julie! I tend to think that animals go to heaven. I don’t really care what anyone else thinks. That’s not important in this case.
Our family could use your prayers. Julie is a major part of our family.
I am going to go try to take pictures of her.
Really sad.

    We are very sad to hear you have to have Julie put down. She will always be remembered.
