Over the past week we lost our cat Sweetie. We had only had her a year and she was 17 years old. Her name said it all about her she was sweetie. She loved to be held in fact did not like it when you were doing anything else but holding her. She was always purring and was very vocal. We knew she was sick a couple month after we got her and there was not much we could do but just keep her comfortable until she got worse. When I would read or wrap gifts or sit at the computer she would sit on my shoulders and purr happily. We miss her.
We have our dog Nala still who is 17 years old she is enjoying being the center of the attention again.
