I lost my 1st baby…my beloved 15 year old Karma today, and am heartbroken. She was emaciated (although about 6 lbs. instead of the 5 I thought) and was eating less and less, throwing up, and had a bad seizure this morning. I think she had cancer somewhere since she didn’t have diabetes, thyroid issues, or kidney failure but something was causing dramatic weight loss. She cried all the time, although it didn’t seem to be a cry of pain. She didn’t pass away immediately like Bodhi did, and when she finally took her last breath, I felt her spirit vwoosh through me dramatically. When I looked in her eyes, she was gone. I just pray I did the right thing. It’s so hard. With her passing, a large chunk of my life’s story is over. She, Bodhi, and I went through a lot together. And Karma was especially sensitive to me. If I was depressed or sick, she sensed it and would cling to me. She loved to touch me and would often reach over just to touch me with her paw. Chakra went and immediately started sniffing the empty cat carrier. I hope she is going to be okay. She still misses Bodhi and was very close to Karma. My cats are my children. My cats are my love. I can’t stop crying.
This picture of her was taken when she was healthy on 5/14/11. I took some movies and pictures of her today, but I’d rather remember her looking healthy.
Rest in peace my baby…
