Hello, I'm ilbv I live and work in the Big Apple. I Love Dragons and many other wonderful creatures. I love meeting new people and snuggles and hugs, but if you don't like those that's totally cool too.
I also hugely enjoy drawing and writing. I often draw for those I admire a lot <3 and anyone who wants to toss some coins my way.
I have a big heart and I'm a big dreamer.
My Birthday is March 4th.
PLEASE DO NOT SEND ME SINGLE WORD OR SENTANCE NOTES!
One of my older cats was on her final days. She wasn't being herself anymore and when we pet her we could feel her body shutting down. We called the vet to seek advice, and from there she was taken in. We knew ahead of time that if it was bad, we would let her go.
X-rays found cancer everywhere. The vet said even if she was young, there was nothing they could do. She would have naturally passed away this week in a lot of pain. She left us at 11:45am on March 14.
I'm sad but I'm okay, she had lived an amazing long life, she had two adorable litters, and her feisty personality was always tamed and affectionate with me. 16 years is a beautiful long life for a cat who was so loved and will be missed. She isn't my first cat to pass away, so I've been through this before, and while I'm really sad, I know I'll be okay and we did the right thing. I came home from work, and she wasn't there anymore. I had one great big ravaging cry, and immediately felt so much better after it left me, like exorcising a demon.
My hope was to bury her in the backyard, but because of the frozen ground, we opted to donate her body to the Veterinary University, so future vets can study and learn about the different cancers that cat's have.
There is a financial cost to getting your pet put down, nothing close to the emotional and mental impact it has though.
Now I can carry on, I still have my other cats to look after and love with every fibre of myself, and time heals.
