Meow=Goodbye?

Today I say goodbye to my little friend Lucky the Cat. I have been cat sitting Lucky for the past 5 months, for someone very special. On January 17, her owner Geri was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer. At that time the prognosis looked very grim, and we weren't quite sure what was going to happen. I volunteered to take Lucky and have had her since February. Now 6 months later from Geri's initial diagnosis, she is doing wonderfully. She was quite the trooper through surgery and chemo. God has been good to Geri and I thank and praise him for his kindness and healing.
So it is bittersweet to say goodbye to Lucky. I am so happy that Geri is well enough to take her back, and I always knew that if someday Lucky could go back then Geri was going to be ok.
But at the same time I have grown quite attached to this cat. Lucky has been there with me through a lot of changes in my life. She was always there to greet me at the door, or come sit by my side when I was sad & crying. You don't really realize just how comforting something as simple as a pet can be, but in small ways it makes all the difference. So this is my goodbye to Lucky, may you be a sweet presence in Geri's life as you were to mine...
