In Memory of Mitzy

This may be a bit emotional for me to write, so I apologize if I seem to be over-dramatic, or anything.

My 11 year-old cat named Mitzy died this last Monday. She had been slowly losing strength over the past year, and had two tumors that we knew of. There was nothing we could do except for comfort and love her.

She never seemed to be in much pain, but always as energetic as she could be, and happy.

It felt like a bad dream all day when she finally passed. I had a hard time looking at her, but finally knelt to pet my beloved girl.

She was the first pet that I have had die in my life. I have been rather emotional all week, remembering her every time I look at her toys, pictures, and favorite hideouts.

Even though this has been very difficult for me and my family, God has placed death in our world for a purpose.

Many non-believers or newly converted Christians ask why suffering exists, and why would a loving God bring us pain?

Here is my answer: Suffering produces character. If we had perfect lives and nothing bad ever happened to us, how would we learn to grow in the hard situations?

Even though I miss my cat, I know I couldn’t have held on to her forever, and that my character will improve with this loss if I chose to let it do so.

This is in memory of my cat, Mitzy.

My question for You: What do you sometimes take for granted that you would miss once gone?




I am a young girl in my teen years, pushing through life with the help and encouragement of my family and friends. But more than that, the Lord God is before me creating a path for me to follow. This blog shows my struggles and victories in life, the things I love or dislike. I hope you enjoy browsing through my blog. Before you leave, I hope you understand more fully how much the Lord Almighty means to me.

  1. I’m so sorry for you! I lost my cat who was fifteen when I was 13(I’m 19 now) and he had been my cat since I was born. I still miss him, but we have three other cats and they were a big comfort!
