We just had to put our 22 ½ -year-old cat, Suzi, to sleep. Let me tell you, it was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. I can hardly remember when we didn’t have her. The vet assistant brought her out in a nice box and then handed me something else. I couldn’t believe what she gave me—the paw prints of Suzi on clay! I have so many memories of Suzi but nothing compares to her paw prints that I can have forever. They brought me such joy and a smile through my tears. My husband is 80 and he couldn’t go to the vet’s. He was so upset. But you should have seen his face when he saw those paw prints. I don’t know who created this idea, but I can’t say enough about how caring and kind it is. Thank you for making it a little easier to lose our beloved companion of so many years….I’ve heard people over my lifetime say, ‘oh, it’s just a cat or it’s just a dog’, but the Lord created life and any life is so very precious. Every vet should do this and I wish you much luck in reaching out to them all and in encouraging them to use this memento to comfort those of us who cherish the ‘voiceless’ lives we were blessed with.
