RIP Callie... the Fire Survivor

:(

One day before the 3rd anniversary of my parents house fire, we've lost Callie, the only of four cats to survive the fire. She would have been 20 years old this fall.

She's been declining in health for the past year after suffering some sort of stroke or something that caused issues with her back and hind legs. Today, she had another worse episode that left her unable to really move.

I got to see her this weekend while I was visiting with my parents. She even managed to make the jump from the floor to my lap twice to curl up and sleep. She will be missed.

I leave you with a picture of her with her brother Abu (my cat) who was lost 3 years ago in the fire.

Oh sweetie! *biggest of hugs*

I don't even want to think about my monsters leaving me someday. I can only imagine how difficult it must be for you right now. *more hugs*

At least she was almost 20. That's one hell of a long and fulfilled life. *sniffles*

It kind of closes a chapter. She's the last indoor cat at my parents. Since I can remember there's always been an indoor cat.

My furry babies are the most precious thing to me and my hubby, so I completely understand your loss and sorrow at her passing. I will be thinking of you and I do hope it gets easier knowing that she had a full and wonderful life with your family. ((HUGS))

What a fighter and survivor. I'm so glad your family had these extra years with your miracle cat.

Hugs and thoughts to you and your folks, Kayla. I'm so very sorry.

It's good that you got to see her one last time. She was definitely a fighter and it doesn't sound as if she suffered before her passing.

I'm glad that she got to leave little paw prints in your heart, but sorry that she had to go all the same.

*hugs*
