January, 2008 ( I know a long time ago but I just found out about the daily puppy) I was getting ready for school in the morning then couldn't find my cat -yes,cat- and heard a faint meow coming from the basement, i husseled down there to see if she was okay. Sagwa,my cat, had been hiding for a couple days now and thats a sign of them being sick. I found her laying on a box and picked her up. He head hung over my shoulder and I ran my hand up her back, I could feel her rib cage and spine. At that point, I knew something was wrong and burst into tears. I came upstairs and told my mom that I thought that Sagwa was not
okay. She called work and said that she would be late and told me to take my cell to school and she would keep in touch with me all day. Through the whole day in my breaks I would call or text my mom to see if she got any news, but everytime it came as a no. When I got home from school, my mom came home in tears "Bethany, go get your shoes," She told me "We need to go to the animal hospital" We went, and the vetrinarian told me that she had been sick in a couple different ways. I went into the room and the vetrinarian gave Sagwa 1 shot for falling into a deep sleep, then as I held her close to my heart with tears steaming down my face, she took a needle filled with pink liquid and slowly injected it into her bloodstream, as I held her I felt her last breath blow onto my damp arm. My mom went to pay for the bill for her investigation of her sickness, they gave me multiple books on keeping memories and shutting out greiving. I sent her bodie in to be creamated and her ashes are currently in an urn which is sitting on a throne I was working on for Sagwa before she died. I have many things that I can remember her by and she will be forever in my heart, her daughter is Mittens, my avatar and she too misses Sagwa. My life, even though its been over a year, will never heal, she has left a tattoo on my life, that I can never get taken off.
