Alice, 
 I am so sorry for your loss of Murphy. You did so much for him. I was 
heartbroken to read your message and hear that his time had passed. You truly 
moved me. I am so glad you gave Murphy a loving home and then were able to let 
him go when the time was right. You and your family are in my thoughts and 
prayers.
Tanya

 You asked if he passed at home. No, I
 got home from work and checked on him, he 
 was laying stretched out on the bedroom floor. Glenn had
 syringe fed and watered 
 him through the day. He was breathing harder than normal,
 he had been breathing 
 fast, trying to get oxygen. I kept thinking any day he'll
 begin to improve like 
 he did in July and August when he first crashed with
 anemia. I gave him some 
 pedialyte and carried him to the bathroom to see if he
 needed to use the litter 
 box. For the first time, he did not stand up and his sides
 were heaving-he laid 
 out on the linoleum and even laid his head on the floor,
 which he has never done 
 when anyone was near. He was always alert and watching his
 people and 
 interacting. His eyes were clear, but he was exhausted.
 After a lot of tears and 
 wavering back and forth, we ended up taking him to the
 emergency vet clinic. It 
 was very hard, but I did not think he was going to last
 very much longer, maybe 
 another day and thought it would be cruel to let him go
 through the night unable 
 to get enough oxygen-the anemia robbed him of all the rbcs
 needed to circulate 
 oxygen. He was the bravest and most willing little
 guy-always came in for his 
 meds when he thought it was time, never fussed. He was
 truly our little prince 
 and our lives have a huge emptiness right now. Rosie is
 having a time trying to 
 figure out where he is, but I think she will be ok in a
 while. We took him to 
 the crematorium and have picked his little picture urn and
 his name plaque.

sorry that you lost Murphy. You all fought the good fight for him, and did
the kind thing when he said it was time. Hugs to you and Glenn. I know
Murphy had a joyous but bittersweet reunion with his brothers at the Bridge.
Long life vibes for your plucky little Rosie.

He found a good home with you and thanks to you he had the best life he could 
possibly have given what was handed to him. He surely knew that from how he 
showed you his love. Will miss your updates (the improvement ones) and thank

Murphy has passed to the bridge tonight to join Buster, Oni, Jack and

in his eyes tonight that he was tired. He gave it all he had but in the end 
FeLV 
took him too.We will miss him so much-he filled the house with his incredible 
personality. He always ran to the door to greet everyone-he never knew a 
stranger. I will miss his big, poly-dactyl feet going clickity-click around the 
house and how he could leap up the wall and turn the light switch off and on 
when he chased the laser toy. Rosie will miss giving him vampire kisses-she's a 
tough love kinda girl and she is the last Mohican of the 6 FeLV+ kitties we 
began this journey with. Thanks to all of you for your kindness and caring.

It saddens me greatly to learn of Murphy's passing.  Through your posts and 
the photo, I felt I had come to know the little guy.  I am so sorry for you 
and your family for this loss.  I'm saying prayers that Murphy's spirit is 
guided to The Land Beyond suffering.  And may your hearts be eased knowing 
you did all you could to make his life on this plane as good as possible.

Peace.

Alice, I'm so sorry to hear Murphy passed. He was lucky to have you. It
sounds like he loved you a lot. And you obviously loved him, and was solidly
there for him when he needed you.

I also wanted to thank you so much for sharing the details of his final days
- for me, as a first time Felv+/FIV+ cat owner,  that has been one of the
things I have most been scared of because I have never experienced the death
of an animal and I'm terrified because I'm still trying to understand the
progression of what happens, and am worried and ignorant of how to prepare
for it.  Thank you for shedding a little light on the subject, and in the
process helping me, and others like me attempt to emotionally prepare for
the day we all hope never comes.

Murphy through your posts.  I was always anxious to hear how he was doing
and praying for his health.  You are truely an angel for the care you have
given these babies.  They were all blessed to have you.  I will light a

oh Alice,
 
I am so heartbroken to hear about Murphy's passing.  You fought the good fight 
for this dear boy and it angers me to the point of tears that you must go 
through this again, and that all our love cannot save them.  Unfairness aside, 
you know you did right by him, and to love these babies with unpromised 
tomorrows is the bravest thing anyone could do - and you have bravery in 
spades.  I believe he's joined the band of furry angels that are surely looking 
out for you.  Cuddle up with you last Mohican and let the good times wash over 
you both.  
 
we are so so sorry
Shannon and Whimsy

I am so sorry to hear that Murphy lost his battle with this horrible
disease.  You made him come alive for everyone in this group with the
wonderful descriptions of him in your posts.  He was a very special cat and
was so lucky to have you to care for him.  You are an angel to have given
all of these cats so much of yourself.

Alice, so sorry to hear his journey came to an end, but what a journey it was! 
He found a good home with you and thanks to you he had the best life he could 
possibly have given what was handed to him. He surely knew that from how he 
showed you his love. Will miss your updates (the improvement ones) and thank 
you 
for your constant retelling of his expriences, they have been a wealth of 
information for us beginners with this terrible disease.
