Last week I did not comment much and after Friday I didn’t comment at all.
The reason is a very sad one: Tedah, our very old cat, became very, very ill. For quite a while you could see her getting old and having some problems walking (arthritis). But, she still had fun in life and liked nice food, warmth and being stroked.
Last Thursday she stopped eating all of a sudden and you could see she was not happy anymore. On Friday we went to our vet and he said she had a kidney problem, a urinary infection and was a bit withered (and that while she was drinking all the time) and, most of all, a very, very old lady. We never knew her age because in 2002 I got her from a animal shelter; we guessed she was about three years old then.
So, we went home with her, taking some special food (a kidney diet) and she had got an injection with antibiotic. We had to come back on Sunday for the next injection. Yes, on Sunday, Easter Sunday, this very nice vet was coming to do that on his day off!!!
But then it got worse and worse with her.
It was hard to watch, because there was so little left of our happy Tedah.

On Sunday we spoke to the vet and together we decided that we did not want her to suffer any longer. So we had to make that (almost) impossible decision and let her go.
Later on we brought her to the animal crematorium, that was actually closed but also there was a very nice lady that came for us especially.
Today the house feels terribly empty and we already miss her.
She was certainly not the friendliest cat I ever had, but absolutely the funniest and so very much my cat.
So no you know why I did hardly comment last week.
Normally I don't share much personal stuff here, but now I felt a need to do so.
Then this week's challenge.
Laura has asked us to spill coffee, tea or whatever fluid on a tile and use that as our string. I dropped some coffee on the tile
and when it was dry I started tangling. I liked doing this and the tangling was very relaxing; something I can use in these days.

Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope you leave me a comment. Work created by fellow tanglers can be seen at 'I am the diva'.
