Kalenda Maya, 1989-2005

The Mighty Huntress

Her full name (never used except formally, as she had lots of other nicknames - Spud, Meatloaf, Miss Thing, Mighty Huntress, and much later Cranky Old Girl) came about because we got her in the month of May. She was previously "Matilda" but that didn't quite fit her. And in May she has left my life.

When I called the vet just before 3 pm I learned that Maya had expired about half an hour previously. I got some pix of her this morning but this is one of the ways I will remember her always: Maya the tawny lioness, Maya the mighty hunter, Maya the Queen of All She Surveys. She was a wonderful, wonderful friend and I will miss her like crazy.

I am sure I will blubber more about it later but, while of course I would have liked to have her longer, I am very glad that her decline was pretty short in time (e.g. not drawn out and she didn't suffer except for the last day).

Thanks to everyone for their support. It means a lot. A thousand blessings on your houses and (as applicable) felines, lagomorphs, and canines.

It's so sad when they leave our lives. Cherish the memories and take care of yourself. *hugs*

RIP, beautiful Maya.

She was an excellent cat, and I'm glad that I knew her. I'm so sorry for your loss.

So sorry
Very sorry, Charlotte, for your poor Maya. Leave it to me to check out of blogdom during these very days.

Hope you're getting through OK. One good thing, though, as you said, is that she didn't suffer. Another, that she had such a nice long life. A third: she had you to spoil and care for her and show her a good time.

Still, we love 'em and it's hard to see them go. Sorry again.
