An Angel's Notes for the Day

Alex just took her cousin kitty home to the bridge

Hi everyone, this is Alex's mom, Lisa. I'm extremely sad right now. I came home from running errands to find my sister's cat Moufasa was dying. He's had a lot of kidney issues over the last couple of years and frankly I never thought he would have lasted this long. He was near death two years ago when my sister came home to live with her two cats, Midnight and Moufasa. I started him on B12 injections immediately and a raw food diet and he bounced back very quickly.

Mouffey was a beautiful flame point siamese who had a really big mouth!!! He was the funniest talker and we swear he could say multiple words. He was a huge pain in the neck, he never left Midnight alone, even just last night. He loved to climb in the bathtub and couldn't stand anyone going to the bathroom and closing the door on him, he had to go too. When he was younger, he was a beautiful, full, muscular, strong boy! I always loved the name Moufasa for him because even though he was a short haired boy, he was commanding but had a soft way about him. He was my sister's constant companion when her husband of 35 years died almost 7 years ago. Mouffey stayed with her non-stop after that. We kept joking that Richard took over part of Mouffey's soul just so he could continue to be with Jackie. That's why he was so loud and obnoxious! LOL

When I went downstairs today to feed them he wasn't coming out from behind the chair. I knew immediately something was wrong and when he did come out, he wobbled, couldn't hold his head up and his pupils were dilated. I knew it wouldn't be long and he couldn't even walk. I called my sister at work and she raced home. We wrapped him in a warm blanket and took him to the nearest vet where the doctor examined him and said he had a mass in his stomach and was too far gone and too weak to bring him back.

So I said goodbye and that I loved him with all of my heart and I'm glad I could give him another wonderful 2 years of life with us. He was so loved here and happy with us. He never had so much love before! In my typical emotional self, I cried my eyes out the entire time and I'm still doing it. I'll be crying all night as I do not take death well. I know we all live on in spirit! I KNOW that. Energy never dies and once we leave an imprint on this world and make our mark, it's there forever. But I feel things extremely deeply and losing someone I love just tears me to shreds. I know this was the right thing to do for him. He was suffering and we made a promise that if this happened we'd help him go peacefully and that's what we did. I prayed to Alex and asked her to come and get him and make sure he was safe, happy and comforted.

My beautiful girl will take especially good care of him (even though she hated him here on earth, LOL). She's a terrific angel and I know he's in good paws with her. Thank you all for listening, I know he's no longer in any pain and in good hands now. But my heart hurts! Here's a video of him on youtube talking for his treat:

Luv Alex, Finney & Lacey's momma, Lisa

We are so sorry to read this Alex and family. We will say our little purrs for poor Moufasa. At least his life with you brought him 2 more wonderful years he never would have had. Where he is now at the bridge he has no more pain and no more suffering. It is always hard to lose a beloved pet and friend, but the bridge is now a little bit better of a place with him there. We know our angels Dinah and Eva will be on the look out for him to help welcome him to his new home until he can be with his whole family again.

I am so sorry for your loss. I just know he was greeted at the Bridge with open paws by all the angels. The loss of our beloved fur babies is so painful as we all know. I will purr for you and your sister in hopes you may find some comfort during this difficult time. My angel brofur Teiga will also help take care of him. He will never be in pain or sick again and he will watch over you all from the Bridge till you all meet again.

Hugz and purrs, Sassy and Mommie Wendy

We're so sorry that you had to say goodbye to Moufasa today. He was fortunate to have such a good and loving home, and it sounds like your efforts helped him to be here a lot longer. Though it's so painful to say goodbye, at the end you and your sister were able to help alleviate his struggle and suffering. He had his family and friends there to greet him at the Bridge. Rest peacefully dear Moufasa. Gentle purrs to you and your family...

Gump and family

thank you so much everyone. I loved him dearly and as you know, going through those routines for so long and having them end abruptly is the worst. I've already had to deal with that tonight when I went to give them both their pepcid. No vocal Mouffey to talk to me and do his funny vocals for his treat. I miss him so much already. But he deserves that long awaited rest. He's earned it.

Thank you everyone, We're all so lonely tonight without his big mouth constantly interrupting our conversations, MOL. But we can STILL hear him! His presence is so very strong. I'm so glad he's still here to comfort us.

So sorry for your loss we do know it hurts we send prayers and purrs your way. It is so painful for us when we do all we can for them and then have to release them even when we know it is for the best. I am so glad you could give Moufasa two more years with family.

Sending purrs of comfort to you Alex and your mommy. Moufasa was a very sweet kitty and we know how much the pain and sadness is overwhelming. It's never easy to lose a furchild even when we know that day will come soon. Mommy still misses her Reuben and found the best thing is to create a new normal whatever that might be. She too gave Reuben another 2 yrs. of life before he went unexpectedly to the Bridge. Time doesn't heal all wounds because they are never gone from our hearts. Time will help to create that new normal and soon you will see Moufasa in a whole new light! We will never forget him and he will always be loved!

Hugs and purrs,
Simon & Reuben(an angel)

thank you so much everybody. Today was a little better although I did lay down on my bed briefly this afternoon and shed some more tears. The animal hospital sent us a sympathy card which is always nice. Sigh. It's only been a couple of days and it feels like he's been gone forever.
