My daughter said you can't pick favorites and I told her - with cats you can. Jakie was everyone's favorite. She was the one I could tell anyone - she's the friendly one, you can pet her, no worries. She would go to anyone and happily accept their affection and settle comfortably in their laps. She was a sweetheart for sure.
18 years old - she lived a good, long life.
My daughter Dani and son-in-law Dan were with me and we were all a mess of tears and tissues, struggling to say goodbye, knowing it was the right thing to do - yet not wanting to do it. It was so very difficult for us but for Jakie? Her passing was quiet and gentle and she went with the dignity she deserved. There will be no more discomfort for my pretty green-eyed girl.
Rest well my little Jakie, we love you still and will miss you always.
