It sounds like he had a great last day, and a good passing. Gentlest of
Bridge vibes to Will.

Thank you Diane.  He had a nice last day, ate a little, begged for a piece
of bread crust from my sandwich, batted it around a couple of times and then
fetched it and dropped it at my feet so I would throw it.  Sat with his
brothers and sisters while they played with a string my mom dangled at them.
 He was so good I started panicking that it wasn't time, but once his little
bit of energy was used up he lay back down on the steps and was breathing
heavy, lots of side movement and seemed uncomfortable.  I decided to keep
our afternoon appointment.  They left us alone for a few minutes in the exam
room, I had his favorite "nursing" blanket on my lap, but he was nervous and
wanted to jump down.  I put my arm under the blanket and  bunched it up into
a little mound under his front paws, he lay right down, stretched his arms
right out with all his toes extended and kneading away, and stated suckling
face down in the material.  It was like he was doing all his favorite things
one last time to please me...When he was done the vet came in, we layed his
blanket on the table, it was a very peaceful passing.  His stuck his little
tongue out at us as he passed, which seemed kind of appropriate.  I am so
grateful for all the kind people on this list who gave me such good advice
when he was a kitten, I am going to stay a member.

Thank you to everyone for your help and support over the past few years, and
hugs to your furbabies, Beth, Blue, Moxie, Dash, Scooter, and Angel Will
