Sue, I'm so sorry.  I'm glad you were able to let him pass at home on his own 
and that the sib-kits were all there.  GLOW to light his path and ease your

Subject: [Felvtalk] Goodbye sweet Casper

I am heartbroken to say that this afternoon my sweet Casper lost his battle.  
He was one of the most sweet tempered cats I have ever known.  He never ever 
bit or clawed anyone in anger, not for any reason. 

He used to come to bed and make bread in the middle of the night right into my 
stomach until I got in the habit of sleeping while holding his paws gently in 
my hands. 

He loved nothing more then to be brushed with an old blue hairbrush.  In the 
middle of the night last night I was spending what I was pretty sure was my 
last few hours with him brushing him with it.  He was still pushing against it 
with the sides of his face and purring.  This morning when I left for work I 
told him goodbye and thanked him for coming to live with me and being such a 
special kitty.  My mother in law sat with him today and he passed around 2:30.  
She told me the rest of the cats in the house came and sat in a circle around 
him, almost like a vigil.  Orlando has slept near him for the last several days 
and through the night. 

I hope now Casper is in a place where there is no more feline leukemia and he 
can run free and watch the birds and chipmunks all he wants.  Whenever I lose 
one of these sweet kitties they take a piece of my heart.
