This morning our oldest Sassy cat, Roxanne passed away. She had lived here on The Hill even longer than we have!
She belonged to our late neighbor’s Patrick & Nancy until they passed and Roxie decided to move in with us. We suspect that she was between 22- 28 years of age!
It’s hard to be too sad as the dear old girl hasn’t had much quality of life lately. She was senile, blind, deaf, and had a hard time using her back legs. But I was beginning to think she would live forever. She never lost her appetite and didn’t seem to be in any pain.
She always had a purr when ever we picked her up but she also had a serious sassy streak which led to bloodshed if you didn’t heed her warning meows.
I could tell she was nearing the end and I’m grateful that I was holding her and petting her as she left. It was peaceful and as near as I could tell she was not in any pain.
I’m sure she is now napping in Patrick’s lap in heaven.
RIP sweet girl
