The little cat didn't make it. She died at home, safe with her family. One of the dogs, who spent most of her time with the cat, whimpered worriedly as soon as she came home from the vet. The dog sniffed her friend anxiously all night and all day. When she died, the dog stopped whimpering, but stayed close to her body until my sister sadly took it away. Animals have some understanding and senses that humans lack. My sister and her husband lovingly buried their family member on the land they just bought. She will always be with them.
