Piper

 If you're a long time reader, you may recall that I got my mother a cat for mother's day in 2017. Piper was a very chubby sweetheart that soon became my mom's best buddy. 
 
When we lost my mom in 2019 Piper went to live with my sister. Actually, she moved in with her while my mother was in the hospital and rehab. Piper missed my mom but came to love my sister and her husband too. 
 
My sister and her husband moved into my mom's old house and Piper was back in her home, and happy, and loved. 
 
Yesterday, suddenly, Piper passed away in my sisters arms. 
 
Earlier this week Piper was at the vets, they couldn't find anything seriously wrong with her except that she seemed anemic. They weren't going to do any extensive testing at the moment, more wait and see because she should be ok. The vet did talk about possibly doing leukemia testing in the future. 
 
I know cats can hide sickness for a long time, but this was a shock. I think we're all in shock. 
 

 I think it's only fitting that her memorial picture has her with her paw on my mother urn. She passed away two years and four days after my mother.
Fly Free Sweet Piper, we'll see you at the rainbow bridge, where you are hopefully in my mom's lap.

This is terrible. I came to thank you for the kind words you left on my blog after Tucker died, and now I find that Piper has followed my boy. I am so glad that Piper was loved; she undoubtedly felt safe and content. Godspeed, Piper. Say 'hello' to my boy for me, please.

I'm here late to pay my respects to Piper. She was so young but now she's together with your (and her) mom.
