These pictures are of my cat, Daisy. I am very sad to have to say that beautiful Daisy died tonight. She's had a cold for a few days and hasn't been eating much so we scheduled an appointment for her to go to the veterinarian on Thursday. But this evening Daisy took a sudden turn for the worse. We took Daisy to the Emergency Vet at 1:30 am and she died there this morning.
Daisy lived with my husband and I for about 4 years and was an older cat. One day, this beautiful, furry and friendly cat appeared in our driveway and never left! We discovered that she was a Norwegian Forest Cat, our first ever of that breed and a stunning one. Daisy was sweet, loving, relaxed and so easy-going. Daisy probably would have liked a home where she was the one and only Cat but she never gave the other cats a hard time. Somehow our other cats knew to be respectful of Daisy, that she was the feline matriarch. Not one of all our other cats harassed Daisy. They all knew she was special. Daisy loved to rotate her sleeping spot every week. We never knew when she'd change or where she'd end up but she always tried out different areas in our home to sleep. Sam and I could always count on Daisy to be with us wherever we were, whatever we were doing. She followed us outside and sat with us on the deck or while we "gardened". She loved to watch football or a good movie. But mealtimes, especially dinner, were her favorite!
Daisy loved my husband and followed him everywhere. When we first moved to our current address, Sam walked down the block and around the corner to the bus every morning. Daisy used to leave with Sam and walk him to the bus. She would wait for him to get on the bus, too!She was a wonderful cat and a joy to have in our home. We were blessed to have known Daisy and shared her life. She will be missed terribly.
