Dear Lynne - I am so very sorry that BooBoo had to leave. You and Bob are the most wonderful people and it was somehow meant that BooBoo would come to you for happiness in his last days. He is well and happy now and I know that doesn't really help at this time--but time passing will dull the pain and accentuate the happy. And, remembering him and how much good you did for him.

He developed difficulty breathing and we rushed him to the emergency clinic. He was dehydrated and had just had his lungs aspirated Friday. The vet recently experienced the same situation with his Himilayan, co-incidentally, though I sometimes think they make stuff up to identify with your pain. I held his little face in my hand and petted him as did Bob and he slipped away almost immediately. I don't think I've cried this much in my life, Bob too. At this moment I can't imagine ever being happy again. Sounds stupid but BooBoo conveyed to me this evening it was time to go and he thanked us. He was so very weak he could hardly walk but he was still purring as we pet him even with the damn catheter in. We know this was best for him but the worst for us. Thank you all for being so very supportive. Lynne
