I adopted a kitten named Ashes from Paws in 2006. He was FIV + and a handful from day 1. He was wild. He was with me through relationships, moves, trips and all of life’s ups and downs. Adopting him was the best decision I have ever made and he was a joy in my life every single day. He lived the best life. He was loved so, so much. Yesterday we had to say “goodbye.” He was suffering from kidney disease and let us know that it was time. It was the hardest decision that I ever had to make. My heart has been ripped from my chest and knowing that I will never see that little face again, right now, is making life unbearable.
