Orange & White Tabby
When he was first adopted, by a married couple, he was called Simba, there was an older cat already in place, and with his youthful energy Simba became known as Red-Racer. His Mommy de-clawed him.
When the couple split up, the kitties stayed with Daddy who didn't really have enuf time for them, Simba showed some bad behaviour, which lead to his exile, outside on the balcony. I lived downstairs and being a catless cat-person i would 'talk' to him & toss an occasional treat or toy up to the sweet kitty.
When Dad moved he didn't want to take Simba, so he made arrangements with my H to leave him on the property and we would feed him.(Really??) I don't think he had ever been outside except on the balcony.
Poor kitty was so scared, feeling abandoned, crying for his Daddy Not understanding what had happened. He had never even been downstairs before. My husband wasn't going to let him stay indoors at our place, so I set up a box and blanket for nights on our patio.
Just when I was trying to figure out how to convince my H that kitty needed to be indoors at least at night in the winter, Kitty turned up with a damaged front leg...Which took my entire paycheck just to get the Xrays and primary visit. The Dr talked about putting a pin in his leg....even amputation. ~shivers~ I couldn't afford anything they recommended and it has been 4 years this month since his accident. It's made him overweight - less exercize, because he doesn't have the same mobility. He does use the leg, w/o putting his full weight on it and makes Great Kitty Love-Biscuits with both of his front paws.
Fast forward to 2012:
We moved 3 times! I know Mr's fave place was the apt over the park, lot's of sunshine and birds to watch, a little creek running through it. we weren't there long, I hope he has a nice spot like this over rainbow bridge. After providing me with so much love, comfort and wonderful companionship, I had to send my baby boy there.
He had kidney issues for over a year, and special diet and meds could only take him so far. I didn't know if I could help him any further, and I couldn't bear the thought of his suffering, so now he's gone. It's the hardest thing I've ever had to do. The guilt I feel, the remorse, the lonelyness My life is so empty without him.
Everyone who has a kitty tonight please love them lots, they are so very precious.
