Goodbye to Mina Kitty

<3 My little, furry, ever present Quilty Helper <3

If you have been reading my blog for sometime, you have seen many pictures of Mina helping me with my quilts.  Today she quilted her last quilt with me.  

Poor kitty has been getting thinner and very frail for sometime now and today she stopped eating.  Mina had a strong heart but she had cancer and was starting to show signs of suffering so my hubby took her to the vet for the last time today.  There was really nothing more anyone could do.  When she came to live with us over eight years ago, she was nine years old and on her way to be put to sleep. My daughter and her friend brought her here instead.  She was frightened and angry and it took her a long time to trust us.  Feeling abandoned, she sought refuge in My Boys' room and eventually learned to love again.  One of the things she loved best was my fabric and my quilts.  Mina had here own little basket of quilty comfort in my sewing area, but she was always hopping onto my sewing machine or table to help me with my work in progress. 

Today she sat with me and kept me company one last time.

Often she would sit on my shoulder while I typed or stitched.

<3 I will miss you, Mina <3

  4. Pat my friend,
    I am so sorry to hear you lost your sewing buddy.
    I know how you feel having just lost my Windsor to cancer.
    Hugs going out to you.

  5. Mina had the best years of her life at the end of her life. She was so lucky to have a "quilty" family that loved her. My heart goes out to you.

  6. Thank you for your kind condolences. <3
