It is with a heavy heart that I write this post tonight in honour of our beautiful girl Layla. 

This amazing cat gave us the privilage of becoming her family 12 years ago.

She was a stray at my husband's factory and she was all personality.  He brought her home and she stole our hearts right from day one.

Layla was all skin and bones and giant ears that night.  She ate like she had never been fed and continued to eat like that for a couple of years until she became the plump, delightful country cat of our dreams.  She always was happy, meowing at you.  She joined all of our parties often taking a guests seat but no one minded because everyone loved Layla, even people who were not that found of cats liked her.

We always knew where she was.  Either on our bed with her buddies, in the bathtub , on the counter or sitting right beside us in the family room.  She loved my husband he was her savior.

She would pose for pictures with those big owl eyes of hers. 

I noticed this summer she had lost a bit of weight and then a few weeks ago she was breathing heavily .  The news was not good.  She held on for a couple of weeks and today she looked at us with those beautiful eyes and we knew it was going to be our last day with our girl.

We will miss you my sweet doll.  She has been at the bottom of our bed for 12 years, the space is empty now and so is a space in our hearts.  xxxooo
