My Sweet Mimi

Mimi, my cat, is not long for this world. Last month our new vet saw jaw/tooth cancer present in her and we knew it was only a matter of time. We just didn’t expect it to happen so quickly. I took this photo of her yesterday, our selfie, for my Happiness Box. While I know death isn’t happy, I’m going to include her passing with a beautiful memory and the photo of us after I graduated in December 2013. I am grateful for all the love she has shown me over the years.

Tonight, until I go to bed, I am going to sit with her and spend the time I have with her because if she makes it through the night, I have both jobs tomorrow. I’m going to miss Mimi.

  1. I am terribly sorry to learn that Mimi is failing, Jessica Marie. Pets are family, and I know you must be grief stricken. You gave Mimi a good life. You made sure she got veterinary care. You did everything you could for as long as you could. Please cling to the happy memories and focus on that 2013 photo. Again, I am very sorry that you face another loss, dear friend.
