Saying Goodbye

Written by Elvin’s female human:

After a long battle with IBD and declining health, Elvin's body wasn't strong enough to handle the anesthesia during a dental procedure today. We knew we didn’t have a lot of time left with Elvin, but it is still a shock that he is really gone. I left right after the vet called to advise me that Elvin was in very bad shape, but I was still too late to be with him during his last moments. He died a couple of minutes before I arrived. Knowing that Elvin died alone was the worst part of the nightmare day.

Elvin enjoyed being involved in all the major events of our lives. When my husband and I were married in our backyard, Elvin (and his older brother Garp) watched the ceremony from a window. He was the official greeter (“kitten bait”) when newly adopted siblings were ready to be integrated into the household. Elvin enjoyed being held (a bit of a rarity in our household), sitting on laps, and getting baths from his sister Hilda. He will be missed.

We too are sorry to hear of Elvin's sudden passing. It is never easy on any of us no matter what happens, not being there to say good bye is very hard that happened to my Mom, she went to work for about 3 hours came home and her kitty had died on my human sisfurs bed....she was alone and we will never know why she died and from what.

You are in our thoughts and prayers during this time of sadness and grieving.

Elvin is a handsome angel now watching over you. May her rest in peace and fly high in the sky with his shining paws.

Xena and family
