From Sweetness Into Torture

Maybe she ate something bad

Off of the floor.

Maybe she was bit by a bug

Flying through the door.

Perhaps she was ill,

That's why she

Became viscious.

Her behavior

Suddenly changed

Making everyone suspicious.

Lucy has always

Been the prettiest

I have ever seen,

But I was sorry to hear that

She became very mean.

She wouldn't let her

Mommy Off of the chair,

And her claws with the lunging

Gave her uncle a scare!

So the news came that

The man who came

From animal shelter

Subdued her and took her

From the home

Turned "Helterskelter".

Few days came to report she had no rabies

To run her wild

But she was put to sleep

To remedy this changed

Grand-kitty- child.

My condolences still

To my daughter for her

Sweet kitty loss.

Maybe her next kitten

Will understand

Who really is the boss.

...this story makes me cry for you and your cat, believe me, because my two best friends and only family members in the Stewart clan (that are left) are: Little Miss Tiffy and Mister Gabriel and I live for my cats.

It's a shame to have to lose them and let them go.

Very sad. When you grow attached to an animal it can be heartbreaking when they go. I cried for a week when our dog Buddy had to be put down. Thank you for sharing and please make sure your daughter gets lots of hugs and encourage her to express her feelings rather than keeping them all inside.
