Kiwi Winsch

It is with extreme sorrow that I share that my beloved, precious cat Kiwi is no longer with me. I made the decision to end her suffering on December 6, 2022. Quality of life was always my primary goal for her. She was a fighter with many health issues over the years and always found the strength to overcome and lived her life to the fullest. Unfortunately, she succumbed to recent health issues. She enjoyed a great life with lots of toys and lots of love. We were together for 14 years and 7 months from the day I adopted her on May 7, 2008. Kiwi was a sweet, social, adventurous, and loving little girl. She was a great communicator in her own way and loved to “chat”. She brought so much joy to my life and provided me with comfort when needed. I cherish the time we had together. Although there are not enough words to express how much I will miss her, I find comfort that she is no longer suffering and I will see her on the Rainbow Bridge someday. Rest in tranquility my precious Kiwi love.

Memories Timeline


  1. My precious Kiwi love….it’s been four weeks since I made the most difficult decision to let you go. I miss you so very much and still cannot believe that you are gone. You will always be forever in my heart and thoughts. I cherish the bond and love we shared and I will never forget you. You brought so much happiness to my life and I will always remember all of your playfulness, adventurous personality, and the many “Kiwi kisses” you gave me. I love and miss you more than words can express.

  2. My precious little Kiwi love- 15 years ago today, on 5/7/2008, you came home to live with me. This is the date we celebrated as your “birthday”. It has been a very difficult 5+ months since losing you. I continue to miss you so much and think about you every day. I am grateful for the time we were together and for all the memories we created. You gave me so much joy and love over the years. We went through some tough times with your health issues but you were a fighter and so strong. I will always love you and you will always forever be in my heart and thoughts.

  3. It’s been one year since I made the most difficult decision to let my Kiwi love go. I still cannot believe you are gone, Kiwi, and I think of you many times throughout every day. I miss your love and support more than words can say. You were my everything. I have been looking at many of the pictures I have of you from over the years and reading my Kiwi journal with so many stories and memories from when you were here with me. I knew it would be difficult losing you but the pain and sense of loss has continued throughout the past year. I do try to remember the countless good times we had together and how much joy you brought to my life. You knew when I needed your love and comfort during challenging times. You were so smart, playful, intuitive, and adventurous. I truly wish you hadn’t experienced the health issues you had, you didn’t deserve that, but you were so resilient for so many years and made some major comebacks and defied expectations of your doctors. I will never forget you, never stop missing you, and never stop loving you. I was so lucky to have you in my life, Kiwi, and you will forever be in my memories and heart.
