Last night we had to put our 19 year old cat Genny to sleep. I watched her be born 4-18-85, she was the last to be born and wasn't breathing. My mother gave her mouth to mouth. She was named after the group Genesis. She was pure black with long hair and green eyes. She was just like a daughter to me...I even gave my mother a necklace with her picture in it for Grandparents day. She is greatly missed by my husband, my three children, our dog Cindi, our other black cat Darth and myslef. We are having her cremated. I am looking for lockets with a picture of a cat on the front to put a little of Genny in them for my children, so my baby can watch over my babies. I have found comfort from this sight before when she was diagnosed with kidney failure. I also found the idea to make death announcements. Just as the vet put the needle into Genny IV she turned an look right into my eyes and for the first time in a long time I saw peace. I will miss her greatly but I am so warmed with the thought that she has crossed that bridge. Thank you for allowing me to share my story.
