Goodbye My Sweet, Sweet Silky

Silky
February 6 2001 - April 23 2013


In 2008 Silky, my beautiful Blue-Cream Himalayan, suffered from a persistent urinary infection which was eventually cured. However it left her with slightly iffy, but manageable, kidney function. A month ago her kidneys began failing suddenly and despite best efforts and care by the vet and ourselves there simply was no chance of recovery.

Last Tuesday afternoon I said goodbye to my beloved and beautiful Silky after a very short stay in the hospital.

I sat with her for a long time and talked to her, comforted her, giving her her favourite chin and ear scratches. She purred and purred. I told the vet it was finally time, and soon Silky died in my arms so peacefully, so gently. I stayed with her for a long time, kissed her and smoothed her fur one last time, and covered her.

Silky was such a beautiful and sweet little girl, such a gentle, funny, and wonderful companion for so many years. Every day with her with a gift and I loved her with all my heart.

I am so shattered, so full of grief and sorrow. Goodbye my little girl, I will love you and miss you forever.

I know my pain and sadness will pass, but it won't be soon.

Silky was cremated and I received her urn yesterday.



The Last Battle...

If it should be that I grow frail and weak,
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then will you do what must be done,
For this last battle can’t be won.

You will be sad I understand,
But don’t let grief then stay your hand,
For on this day, more than the rest,
Your love and friendship must stand the test.

We have had so many happy years,
What is to come can hold no fears,
You wouldn’t want me to suffer so...
When the time comes, please let me go.

Take me to where my needs they’ll tend,
Only, stay with me until the end.
And hold me firm and speak to me,
Until my eyes no longer see.

I know in time you will agree,
It is a kindness you do to me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I have been saved.

Don’t grieve that it must be you
Who has to decide this thing to do
We’ve been so close – we two – these years,
Don’t let your heart hold any tears.
