I had to get this out tonight though. Our beloved cat of 5 years died today. We had to put him down due to heart failure. It was the second hardest thing we have ever had to do next to burying my grandparents. I think that God takes the good ones early. He knows that they are too good for this earth. It's so sad to think that we will never come home to his meow again, never fall asleep next to his purring, and will never see his shiny, orange coat again. We loved him more than life itself. He hung on as long as he could for us, trying to be strong, but there was only so much he and we could do. They say a loss of a pet is hard, but we didn't know it was going to be this difficult. This has been a day full of crying, praying and sorrow. MacGyver changed our lives dramatically, he helped us through difficult times and made us laugh until our faces hurt. There are no words to describe what this cat meant to us. Our "little man" is in heaven looking down on us, making sure to keep us safe. We'll post some pics when I'm on our other computer.
