Snow crossed the bridge this morning. He's lost a lot of weight this last year. Still ate like a horse though. He always slept on the bed with me and he purred when he slept. The last few days he distanced himself from me so I'm not sure when he stopped eating. Then yesterday around 1am, I got up to go to the bathroom. Before I turned the light out, Snow walked around to the other side of the bed and squeezed himself in between the wall and the night stand and laid out under the night stand. I knew right then that his time was near. Had I not seen him go under there, I might not have found his body for awhile which really un-nerved me.
I put Snow in my bathroom so I knew where he was. He drank some water from time to time but he had no interest in food. He was extremely restless too. He'd lay down for awhile and then he'd get up and go lay somewhere else. I held him in my lap this morning for a little bit and talked to him and loved on him. He knows he was loved. I had a bunch of errands to run this morning but when I came home around noon, he had already crossed the bridge. I know he didn't like me fussing over him and he waited until I was gone before he crossed. I know he didn't want me crying all over him. With his trying to hide, I knew he wanted to go in peace. I just hope his passing was quick.
He knew he finally had a home to call his own and he was loved. I know he loved me too. I will always remember his little raspy meow that day I saw him at Petsmart, almost 3 years ago. My life is definitely better for having him share the rest of his life with me. Things just won't be the same without him. I miss his purr and I miss his face rubs against mine. His eyes were like no others I'd ever seen before...He'd look at me and I swear he knew exactly what I was saying to him.
Snow was my buddy and will always have a special place in my heart. Adopting him was the best thing I could have done. He showed me that senior cats are grateful and he showed me all the time. I just wish I had more time with him. He was my Snow Buddy and will be deeply missed. I love you Snow! Rest in peace, my buddy, and I'll see you at the bridge some day. Love and kisses always!
