    With a very heavy heart and a clear mind I am sharing the news today that my sweet Morgaine has passed on. I made the decision 2 nights ago as I realized that she was no longer present in her body. The true spirit/soul of Morgaine was no longer there. It was confirmed today when Marje and i took her in to see the pain management vet, a beautifully spiritual woman who took her time examining my sweet girl and found clear indications that Morgaine's body was no longer able to function. Her visual impairment was severe, almost non reactive and her inability to grow hair back or even shed hair anymore was a sign that she was not able to carry out healthy functions. The vacant stare and her incontinance as well as her sitting in urine all were indicators of a cat no longer able to maintain a quality of life. I know in my heart that i did the right thing by letting her find peace.

    Morgaine was my joy, literally. I used to say that all of the time. She was my peace too so to see no more happy cat and no peace in her physical being made these last few weeks so hard for me to accept. But now I do accept that she has been set free from that which she never wanted done to her. She was always a free spirit and now she can fly.

    I am so saddened by it all yet I am also relieved. I think some of you will understand that.

    To Marje, you are such a beautiful person with a huge heart and a kind soul. Thank you for all the kindness you have showed us these many months. We will stay in touch. I will follow your condos and send lots of love to your sweet girl.

    To all of you here in LL , thank you for being here for us and helping us move through this process. Diabetes is a close companion of mine, unfortunately, and having to care for a cat with this disease was made so much easier by all of you. The experts and the friends I made who just stopped in to say hi and wish us well and cheer us on, I thank you all! The fund raiser was beyone anything I ever expected and I thank you all for contributing to that so that I could rest easier about Morgaine's care in the final days of her life. My journey with Gainie Girl was so full of love and trust for the most part. That will always outweigh the pain of losing her.

    I know I need to grieve now and i will so if i am not around for a while please understand but i will be back to say hello and check in on you and your fur kids. This a very special community and you all have a lot to be proud of as you assist one another and offer the greatest gifts of all, love and support.

    Fly free sweet beautiful girl and remind Mama often that you're still right there beside her - she just has to hug you differently.

    (((Rosalie))) my dear friend: My heart breaks for you but you always made the best decisions for Morgaine...always in her interest and with a heart full of love for her and today was no different. I had the privilege and honor of knowing your beautiful girl when she was still your wonderful Gainie. I am thankful for that time. I am thankful for whatever brought you to LL so we could become friends and I could know Morgaine. I know in my heart that she was ready...that her sweet spirit had already flown. May she have a gentle journey to join your beloved sister. May she know only peace, love, and light once again. I'm here for you....we all are.

    I am so sorry that you have had to make the heart-breaking decision to release Morgaine from her suffering. I know that it was the hardest, but also the kindest, thing you could have done for her. I admire all that you did for her as her illness progressed. I hope that you are secure in the knowledge that you did everything possible for her, right up to the moment when you knew that she was ready to give up her struggle. I believe that the bond of love we share with our kitties does not end when they have passed to the Bridge. I hope that she will be able to send you a message that she has crossed safely, and is looking out for you.

    With my deepest sympathies,

    Rosalie, I am so very sorry. wings_cat

    I'm shedding tears, too. I haven't been in LL long, but her name caught my attention a few weeks ago, and I've been rooting for both you and Morgaine. I know how hard it is to have to finally accept that it's time. You are a good bean to her to have been able to guide her through this. I am lighting a candle on my altar for her to have a peaceful journey to her next adventure. I am sending energy to you as well. I hope your beautiful memories of her can ease your own pain a little bit now.
    Be well, Rosalie.
    Fly free, Morgaine!

    I am so sorry for your loss. I know how difficult the last weeks have been for you. You have done everything humanly possible that you could have for Morgaine. And, ultimately, you make the hardest but kindest decision anyone could possibly make. To know that your companion had already left is a small gift that Morgaine gave you.

    We are lighting candles to acknowledge her crossing to a place where she is the cat you will always see in your mind's eye and the companion you cherish and shared with us.

    Fly free and land softly sweet Morgaine. Those we most dearly love are at the Bridge to welcome you and share the secrets only other kitties know.

    (((Rosalie))), your soulmate is in another dimension now, but she will always be safe in your heart. I know how wrenching it is to make the decision, but Morgaine had already left in spirit. You gave her the most loving gift of all, her freedom. Our kitties at the Bridge are welcoming her tonight--the night of the full moon--and her kitty friends here in Lantus Land will celebrate her spirit as they remember all their friends who have Gone Ahead.

    Rosalie, you always have your Lantus Land family. We grieve with you and we hope that you will visit us from time to time.

    In deepest sympathy,

    I am so moved by all the love, support and kind words you are sharing with me in this thread. I am doing okay though I find myself looking for Morgaine, expecting to see her in her usual places and then remembering....she is not here in the physical world. I do feel her spirit around and had to lol at the stinky smell of the urine in my rugs. It is lingering here and I really do not mind right now. She left me some strong smells to work on releasing and tomorrow will be a good day to start that process.

    I thought that i would want to take all my photos of Morgaine down for a while but i have done just the opposite. She was a beautiful kitty and very photogenic. She was the subject of hundreds and hundreds of photos and when i got my first digital camera I took so many pictures of my sweet girl in all kinds of poses. I am not feeling sad when i look at these. I am feeling relief and incredible love for this amazing creature who honored my life for over 13 years.

    Earlier my friend Daniel came by to be with me and I sent him home with his van full of cat items. He recently got a young male kitty who needs some redirection from the furniture. So Jude got Morgaine's kitty condos and lots of toys along with a few cases of low carb cat food and lots of other items too numerous to mention. So i am taking the steps to get my space cleaned up and to honor my sweet girl by displaying the beautiful photos of her that I have rediscovered. Her life was full of love and in these photos she was beautifully self groomed and looks so alive and happy. This is how I want to see her in my mind's eye. She was a real character, determined to do things her own way and most of the time I went along with her lead. I may put together a photo journal of her and if i do i will share it with you all.

    I just wanted to check in and let you all know that I am doing okay and really appreciate all of you and all of these wonderful thoughts you are sharing with me.

    Hugs back to you all!

    I am crying so hard right now, as I know you & Morgaine put up a hard fight, done with love & compassion...
    We all may face this time sooner or later, and the pain of loss is the worst pain of all--
    Morgaine is with you, she will show herself & you will see & hear her..She will never be far from you & you will see each other again..MY civvie passed in May 2011, & we hear him jumping off the kitchen counter, leaving us so many signs that he is with us--Grief is the price we pay for love..
    But..Love Never Dies..She is with you..Look & Listen for her.
    I am so so so sorry for your Loss..Hugs & Love & deepest sympathy from us!!

    They are never with us long enough - and when one of us says goodbye, we all share the sadness. But you fulfilled your commitment to set her free and now she is free of the body that was holding her prisoner - free to be young and healthy again - I'm sure there was a party tonight at the Bridge as she was welcomed with those who have left us earlier.

    My thoughts go out to you in your grief - it is truly our pain to let them go - and I send many comforting prayers and hopes that as you remember all the good times, memories and love you've shared, you will smile.

    Thank you all. The outpouring from this board is helping me to move forward. I am so sad and an emptiness of energy exists in my home. Morgaine had a huge presence and even my friends can feel the empty space. Please know how much I appreciate all of you for stopping by and sending your kindness and concern. This special place is full of people who adore their cats and dogs. Some never understand the bonds we share with our special companions so having you all understand my pain is so helpful.
