How thoughtful of the folks who sent the flowers and card. From all you
said, BooBoo touched the heart of everyone who came into contact with
him--I recall you even saying one vet kissed him on the head as he said
goodbye. I've never seen that happen in the 10 years I've had cats (and
some of them were mighty sick). BooBoo was truly a remarkable little
soul. And you and Bob were remarkable in your devotion to him. You gave
him what he never had until he met you----a ton of love---and he
certainly knew it.
hugs, Kerry

Ah thank you Kerry.  It's been difficult.  I thought we'd start feeling
a little better by now but that isn't happening.  We got a lovely floral
arrangement from the Animal Hospital on Tuesday and a touching card
today from the Vet and all the staff with such kind messages on it and
of course I started to cry.  I miss him so much.  I look beside me when
I go to bed and he's not there and it just breaks my heart all over
again.  Last night I was almost alseep and this picture of him laying on
the table lifeless came to mind and I swear I had an anxiety attack.  We
both know we did what was best for him.  He is no longer suffering but
boy we sure are.  We don't even have any happy memories because he was
never really well.  All we wanted to do was give him some joy.

        Dear Lynne
        I've been out of town and catching up on email---I am so very,
very sorry to hear the heartbreakingly sad news of BooBoo. You and Bob
must be devastated. I hope that knowing your little sweethheart couldn't
have wished for a better and more caring mom and dad than you and Bob,
and that he enjoyed your unstinting love and devotion every minute of
every day he spent with you will eventually bring you comfort. 
        You did the most loving and kindest thing for him on Sunday when
he let you know his time had come.
        But it's so painful, I know.
        Thinking of you, 
        much love and big hugs

        We lost our precious baby tonight.  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.
