Today I experienced a very heavy broken heart as I had to say good-bye to my kitty Boris that I had brought home with his littermate sister Natasha in June of 1998. They both gave me so much love and joy but Natasha had a stroke on April 3 2011 and we lost her. Boris has since gone through 2 rescued kitties and 2 rescued dogs. I loved them all but Boris was my son. We looked at each other yesterday , after a year of him being so sick on and off and dealing with medicine and being 18 years old and tired, and I knew he was ready to cross Rainbow bridge even though I so didn't want him to leave. So, we went this morning and Boris peacefully made his transition. I so miss him already.
