Beginnings.

Today I want to share a story with you about the logo and why it has a very special meaning to me. As well as what convinced me to open a shop.

My cat, Calypso had to be put to sleep in 2013 due to cancer. She was about 16 or 17. It's kind of hard to know for certain since I adopted her from a shelter. They say you don't choose animals, they choose you. I believe that to be true. Even with Calypso she came right up to me in the shelter. Originally she was intended for someone else when I got her, my now ex husband. However when we split up I kept her since he could not take her with him and she was always closer to me anyway.

When I first noticed the lump I took her to my regular vet in the area. He didn't want to operate because of her age and strongly advised against it. Well, seeing as this was my second cat in two years to be diagnosed with cancer, and that I've volunteered at many shelters, had several pets in my life and studied Vet. Assistant in school I understood the risks involved. At first I didn't do anything more but when we moved here I decided to take her to a new vet. He did several tests and said he saw no reason she wouldn't be able to withstand the anesthesia and surgery. So we decided to do it.

We actually paid for her to have the surgery about four months ago and it seemed to work, but we were wrong. It came back very quickly and spread into her lungs. At that point there was nothing more we could do for her other than "make her comfortable" and wait.

After about a week of giving her pills every day to try and reduced the fluid on her lungs I knew it was time to let her go. She was not herself at all. All she would do is lay by the water fountain and drink and when she looked at me it broke my heart. Something in her eyes was begging me to make it stop. She was obviously suffering and I could not allow that no matter how much I didn't want to let her go.

I didn't sleep much that night. I stayed up by her side until I could no longer keep my eyes open. We actually had a check up appointment for her the next day for 10am to see how the medicine was doing. We ended up taking her as soon as the place opened instead....to let her go.

She is not the first pet I've lost, nor will she be the last...sadly. Some people think that it's easier to let an animal go when you've had them a long time. That is anything but true. I am grateful that I have two other fur babies to love, and a very supportive boyfriend and friends.

I take some comfort that I know she's now playing with her older "brother" and no longer in pain. She was and will always be my little girl and I miss her dearly.

The day we brought her in to let her pass on I received an unexpected surprise; which would allow me to do something I've always wanted to do. Create for a living. I took it as a sign and my shop was born. Originally launched as Creations By Lynda LLC. It has since been rebranded and relaunched as Kittae Creations.

The silhouette cat logo has remained the same. It was created from one of Calypso's photos. It was my way of honoring her. A way to share her memory and have her live on.
