Rest In Piece Cotton

It is a sad day in our house.We found my beloved cat Cotton dead outside this morning.We found Cotton over 2 years ago filthy and starving in our yard.He was a little ball of fur that should have been white but was dirty and matted and bloody.I still have no idea where he came from-he had to be just weaned if that.I took him inside and we bathed and cleaned him and he has been with us every since.A couple of days ago he was acting a bit strange,but he is a cat after all so we didn't think much of it.He ate and went outside and that was the last time we saw him.My husband went looking for him and found him outside our boys window.I guess he wanted to tell them goodbye so he laid down there and never got back up.It has been hard on everyone,but especially my husband (even though he is trying not to show it).Brad loved that cat which is unusual for him,and I feel so bad for him losing his pet 4 days before his birthday.I know this is all part of life but I had to get it off my chest so maybe I can stop crying about it.

We Love You Cotton 
 I am so sorry you had to be alone in those moments but I guess that is the way you wanted it.

Aw, I am so sorry for your families loss.

It's so hard when someone loses a pet-It's sometimes even harder then losing an actual person!

Sending love and energies your way.
