It is with sadness that tell you that our sweet Buddha was sent to heaven at 8:58am 11/22/10. All of his human family was there to say good bye and mommy got to kiss him one last time. Although it broke mommy's heart, she couldn't stay in the room but our friend and vet Dr. Doug promised to hold him while he left us. He will be brought home to stay with us some time next week.
Thank you for all of your prayer and thoughts. He really did like the fuss as I sat him on my lap and read him your wishes.

I am so happy that my mom is getting my favorite dinner. She told my replacement to go and get Boston Market chicken. I know what I want....I want chicken and corn and mashie potatoes and to sit on mommy's lap and eat it all up. I might let her have a bite or two. I am getting excited to go to the bridge now. Mommy knows it's getting closer too. She looks at me so tired and not wanting to move and is okay. I couldn't make the litter box but she didn't yell and my replacement didn't say a word either. They just picked me up and brought me to the bed and then went and cleaned it up. That is one thing I will say about my replacement. He sometimes yelled when he caught me spraying but just cleaned it up and said that it came with the territory. He's a good replacement and will do good things for my mommy.
Her daughter is nice too. She likes to bonk me back. I told her that when she can't see me anymore and I'm off to heaven, if she feels a bonk it's me. The child yells a lot now. She lashes out more but mommy understands. Her child is only 3. She's a good girl and she is lucky to have her mommy and daddy. Well it's time for me to eat now. Maybe more tonight.

My mommy woke up today smiling. I guess she finally has the peace I had when she brought me home, loved me all these years and then told me everything was going to be okay. She is making a breakfast that she used to make when it was just us. I can't wait to get into the eggs and pancakes again. She also mentioned bacon but I don't think so....(I hope I'm wrong I hope I'm wrong). I have had lot of purrrayers and mommy is reading every one to me. I think this rainbow bridge thing seems like a cool place. I'm looking forward to it.
My first mommy might be there waiting for me. I'll love her and tell her I missed her but I think I'm going to wait around until this mommy comes. When this mommy comes I'll say the same and wait for her little girl. That's who my real person is.
After all of the frightening things that I had to go through, my purpose in life was this....to help mommy's little girl understand the unconditional love of a companion, to learn how to treat any creature with kindness, and to believe that there is a destiny in this world and everything happens for a reason. I picked my mommy because before I was born, her grandfather (whom I can't wait to tell him all the stories when he was looking over the other members of her family) said to me "you are the soul that has to find them. I have this little girl soul here and I think you two need each other. She needs you to start her journey and you need her to end yours. You'll be back and I can't wait to hear all about it".
I will write more tonight and maybe even tomorrow before I go.
Thank you all for your purrrayers.

I don't know why but, I'm just sooooo tired. I don't want to eat, I don't want to play. I just want to sit on mommy's bed and sleep. She holds me close and tells me it will be over soon. She tells me she loves me. I only purr a little now. I just don't have it in me to purr as loud as I used to.
She is still upset but I also know she is okay with what she has decided. I just wonder if, when I go to heaven, will I go alone or will she hold me like she always has. I don't want her daughter to see it though. And I think my replacement might have a hard time too. It's okay. I'm okay. Mommy will be there and I know you both love me.
I don't know who is suffering more now. Mommy will tell you it's me. I'll tell you I don't know. I know I am hurting but I know mommy's heart is breaking. I know she cries every night when I curl up with her. I know she cries when she wakes up and I bonk her head good morning. I do know....it's her. She is hurting more and all I can tell her is it'll be over soon. That and behind the dresser wasn't me.
I'm going to try to write right up until I go off into my silence on Monday morning. But right now, I just want to sleep.
Good night to all.

I haven't been feeling well lately and I've lost a lot of weight. My mom noticed that I felt full even though I really don't feel like eating. She took me to my doctor and he said I had lymphoma. They gave me prednizone and said I would have a decent quality of life for at least a little while.
I took the medicine and I will have to say I got really hungry. Mom got me my favorite kitten food since I lost a lot of weight. I want to eat more and more and I enjoy my treats now too. So far so good my mom says.
The phone rang and my mom is crying again. It turns out it isn't lymphoma. There is carcinoma that they can't do anything about. The vet says as long as I am eating, I should be okay but sooner rather than later, I will not want to eat anymore and the medicine will stop working.
I guess what I want my mom to know is that I've lived 10 years longer than I should have anyway. They were going to put me down as "un-adoptable". She took me in and I've had 10 years being her friend. I got to meet my replacement (her husband). I gained a sister (Ophelia - his Maine Coon) and I got to meet and save her daughter. I guess by doing that last one, we're even on the saving thing. My mom calls me her "old man" and her "buddy". I like it. I also like crawling up on the bed and sleeping on her. This is a new thing but I like it enough to keep doing it....she doesn't mind.
