MAUWI GOES TO HEAVEN (2005-04-14)
Our cat was boarding at a vet's clinic then while my sister and her
husband were on vacation. When they came back to Sydney, they got
the news from the vet. Since we just got back from a trip
ourselves late Saturday night (more on that later), she couldn't
contact us till the following day. Apparently Mauwi was well one
minute and died the next. She was an old cat and had suffered
some motor dysfunction a couple of months prior (such as bumping into
walls and objects), which the vet had contributed it to old age at that
time. We suspected she might have had a brain
tumor which caused her death. Anyway we would never know the
cause and we don't want an autopsy on her.
It's ominous that I was just talking about Mauwi on Sunday on this
site when her death news came that very night. And the caption on
the last picture of that article is even more presageful, in a bad way.
We both mourn for Mauwi's death, but KL, who is ever so kind-hearted
towards animals, cried a lot that night. We reminisced how we
picked her from several kittens in a pet shop over fourteen years ago
and brought her home enthusiastically. Besides being too shy and
timid, Mauwi was a very loyal and good cat.
Being our first pet, she always has a special place in our hearts. We loved her dearly, may she rest in peace.
