Once in awhile, humans are blessed with the presence of animals. 
Once in awhile, we see that cute little face and just know that he/she is meant to be in our life.
I saw Chloe.
And had to have her.
I was 17.
She was a cute little fluff ball that no one seemed to want.
But when I saw her, it was love at first sight.
And for the next 17 1/2 years, I was blessed to have her.
My kids loved her.
My parents loved her and raised her as their own once I moved in with a man allergic to cats.
Other animals loved her.


Gosh darn I loved her.
That long bushy tail.
The way she meowed...just as if she was having a conversation with you.
The way she nuzzled.
And cuddled.
And purred.  So loud that others could hear her on the telephone.

After almost 18 years of a wonderful, beautiful, loved life, Chloe was wanted in Heaven.
I don't blame them for inviting her.
She was special.

Animals definitely make our lives better and I know how hard it is to say goodbye when those we are closest to are invited to heaven. ((Hugs))

She was beautiful; I love black cats.
My grandmother-in-law has a cat named Chloe.
RIP to her, I'm so sorry for your loss.

Very sorry for your loss. Pets are family, and have their own special language for sure. {{HUGS}}
