We lost a very important member of our family yesterday.
I got Bitty when I was 18, she was my faithful little sidekick through so many important chapters of my life. She was sweet, loud, hilarious, highly intelligent (naturally), softer than baby bunnies, loved having her belly scratched and in between her toes rubbed. Saying she will be missed is an enormous understatement.
I'm so heartbroken about how quickly her health declined and that I couldn't do more to help her, but I'm happy that she wasn't in any pain and is finally able to take a nice long nap without the pup pestering her. He gave her the sweetest tiny little kiss before we left, and for the first time she didn't mind it at all.
I had been working on this little video before she got sick, and I figured it was only right that I finish it for her. Here's to you, Bitty Kitty, the original sassafrass. This home will be much too quiet without you...
