Bootz The Cat - Goodbye Dear Girl
Friday morning our darling Bootz fell ill and was gone in a matter of hours. My husband and I are still a little shell shocked.
A visit to the vet revealed Bootz The Cat had a collapsed lung and an enlarged heart, with only hours left to live. Bootz did not show any symptoms of discomfort, until just a few hours before she died. We miss her with all our hearts.
We are grateful to have had her in our home for the short time she lived here. This is a sketch of our dear Bootz--I will be doing a full pen and ink based on this graphite sketch, then a colored version.
Bootz The Cat rests peacefully beneath the bird bath--I am sure she must be delighted. Though she was an indoor cat, one of her chief delights, besides my husband and myself--was to watch birds through the office window.
