Good Night Sweet Molly
My sweet Molly went to heaven on September 5th. It was the ending of an emotional roller coaster of a Summer. Molly's kidney disease started to worsen around the 4th of July but with daily fluids she looked like she was improving. It was a short lived improvement.
Those last 2 months were spent caring for her and loving her. I am glad we had the time as I had to prepare myself for her final days. I gave her my full attention.
We were a family for 15 1/2 years and although I had hoped we could celebrate her sweet 16th birthday together, I will have special memories of my beautiful girl.
I adopted Molly from an organization called Kitty Angels. She was rescued with her mother and siblings from a trailer park in Hooksett, New Hampshire. Her original name was Little Martha but I knew that did not suit her and she became Molly.
She was the only being I knew who became more beautiful with age. One of her vets once said she had a beautiful feminine face. I have to agree, she was a stunner.
I do not believe she was ever in pain, and in the end I had to make a difficult decision but I was prepared for it. My sister and I were there for Molly in the end, petting her head and giving chin scratches as she purred. It was peaceful and calm and I know she was smiling as she went to heaven.
