Dear Michael and Fam,

I'm saddened by the loss of Lita.  It sounds like she was an amazing cat. 
 Thanks for sharing a little of her story, especially the sweet part about your 
daughter.  I love cats that give head butts!! :)  I've got an 18 year old boy 
that does that.

I guess your family is no stranger to loosing cats, but it sounds as if this 
one 
was probably harder than normal.  Prayers of comfort for you and your family.

God bless,

Mike :)

I am SO SORRY for your loss. It hurts SO BAD. I wish I could speak as 
eloquently has you have for other rainbow kitties. You have given so many of us 
peace. I wish you the same and more.

  tonight we lost our queen, Lita. our very first FeLV cat, she was 18 yrs old. 
  Lita started out as Pink at the SPCA. she was the house cat there for a few 
  years, and was given to me after finding out that my chemo had failed and 
what i 
  had would eventually kill me. This huge torte was a pissy old girl and would 
  hiss at everything. she at her best was about 20 lbs of pure joy. she would 
come 
  up to you and head butt you to get petted, and then jump in your lap and just 
  lay there.
  Lita died at home surrounded by those who loved her, laying on my daughters 
  jacket with her by her side petting her to the end
  Lita had been with us for 8 long years and had been treated for everything 
from 
  Uri's to arthritis, to the starting of a feline form of glaucoma, but she 
held 
  on and fought for all this time finally giving in to liver failure.

  Safe travels across the bridge Lita. you will be missed. thank you for making 
  Second Chance possible

  I know i don't send a lot of things here but we here at Second Chance try to 
do 
  the best we can while running a full house. Please remember that the smaller 
  rescues and homes like us do this from our own pockets. Please help the 
smaller 
  sanctuaries like ours continue to give love and hope to our furry families.

Michael and family,
I was saddened to read that Lita has crossed the Rainbow Bridge.  I can see her 
now in running the show up there in those green meadows.  She had an amazing 
life with your family and know you all gained so much by having her with you.  
We all thank Lita for being the inspiration for Second Chance Meows.  

You all are in our thoughts and prayers
Sharyl

Michael
My condolensces to you on the loss of your Lita.  We all know how special an 
animal friend can be in our lives -- she was clearly special to you and your 
family.  I'm sure being at home, in familiar surroundings, with those who 
loved her was a comfort to her at her transition.
May she be engulfed in peace and bliss, and may your love for her help heal 
your heart.

Bonnie
