Thank you Sue for the lovely poem. I can't stop crying but that's ok, it's part of life I hear. I miss him so much it's almost unbearable. I won't leave this group. I have learned so much here and do not know how I could get through this without all my new found friends. And there is so much that needs to be done for these little darlings.
Thank you so much.

Won't someone just love me before I must go Now I am yours, thank god up above I am cared for and hugged, given peace that I need My purr tells my people I'm grateful indeed For the first time in my life I'm surrounded with love. My body is weak, the fight won't be long My people embrace me I wish I could stay But we'll meet at the bridge on some glorious day With the ones who have loved me is where I'll belong So very sorry for your loss. I am sure I am not the only one who hopes you will keep in contact with this group. You and BooBoo have touched many lives.

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
