Thank you so much for the condolences. I am still pretty sad he
all over my facebook page. I don't know if you can see but here is
http://www.facebook.com/album.php?id=500028466&aid=19598 He's the
gray one on the bottom.
A nutty thing I'm doing is imagining conversations in my head when I
his room and he tells me how he's doing. It actually helps.
wonder if that's a little too nutty or even if it could be real -
- but I don't think I care. I like to imagine him up there calmly
and enjoying being healthy in heaven.
I'm trying to look at the positives. I think it was fairly quick, I
actually home with him, he died and was cremated in his comfy
although I haven't gotten him back yet.
Very important for the end, I didn't have to force him into a cage
to get to
the vet. That would have been bad.. It once took me a nightmarish
and it sounded like I was abusing him as he screamed and climbed up
the screen and the window to not be crated....sheesh - the crate was
too. I finally had to get wooden boards and literally used several as
leverage to block and steadily force him in. He was BIG and strong.
awesome. He was fine btw. Just pissed. Never ever defeated. LOL.
made me smile. I Love him! He had his moments. :)
He didn't suffer from cancer as far as I know. He was finally fat
healthy and clean fur. I gave him as many snackies as he wanted.
I worried his life would end in the worst possible way, as I'm sure
you do, so I am sad but extremely grateful I knew him and it was at
seemingly peaceful. I'm afraid to google it yet. I hope it was.
Most frightening for me was I did not know Animal CPR and either way
so scared, I could not hear or feel his pulse over the loud beating
own heart. I had to get a mirror to check for breath and then wait a
until I calmed myself enough to feel his pulse. I don't think I want
that uneducated again. I really felt the responsibility of his life
trust in me. I think I did ok because there wasn't much I could do
not going to risk that again. I hope I don't need it.
I hope you all give your kitties a kiss and a hug and a thank you
being around tonight. As you know, It matters.
Best to you all and thank you so much for giving me a place to
people are kind of being like..blippy about this...it didn't mean
and they are happy, actually that I have one less cat.. Yes it makes
easier but some people went there SO Fast. :(
It's scary how little animals mean to some people. They just see
don't see heart.
Thank you for having this list!

Subject: [Felvtalk] Buddy left for the Rainbow Bridge today.
HI All, please add my boy Buddy to the list. He was 10 years old,
and Fiv positive.
He passed earlier today about a half hour after a seizure. He had
seizure activity I was aware of, in fact I thought he was in great
and would be around for a couple more years. He went completely
the seizure and at first I actually thought he was dead. But a little
showed on the mirror in front of his nose, and then I hoped he
round in at least some fashion....but it didn't happen, he was barely
breathing, I couldn't tell if he was conscious or not the whole
time - and
then just as we got to the vets, he stopped. There was nothing they
do. I am really grateful I was home (my worst fear was he would be
and able to be with him when he passed and I really hope he was
not alone, and I was trying to help him.
He was absolutely an awesome friend, such a patient cat,
and playful for an old, very tough ex-TomCat. He was finally
and really loving scratchies and pets. A total joy for me to see
safe and happy. I knew him the last three years - after feeding him
last winter is the year I caught him and insisted he stay inside. We
really hard to get to a very good place and it was worth it. He
hardest; he still was willing to trust me.
I am really sad. I miss my friend in my house. His room feels
empty and even though he wasn't allowed out of his room, I feel the
of his physical and spiritual presence everywhere. I am getting him
(in his cozy soft bed he loved, if they will allow it) so he will
sort of, but this is the first time I have had one of my cats in
else's care when out of my house. I never leave them alone in a
place. I know it's weird but it's creeping me out thinking of him
even if he is curled in his beloved bed, at the doctors office. I
like leaving him there. :(
All, if you can, give your kitties a kiss, a hug and a treat today
them for still being around. I know I am!
