Hi everyone, can you spare some purrs for our cousin Midnight? She's not doing well and mom is afraid it's getting closer to when I'll be coming to get her. She's got IBD and colitis and she's losing control of her bowels and now her bladder. She's still eating with an appetite stimulant, but eating well. She's just pooping all over the place and now she's starting to pee everywhere too. Mom has been taking care of her for almost 4 years now (they live here downstairs) and 2 of those years she's been sick. When her brofur Moufasa died 2 years ago she was really happy at first (she HATED him, he pestered her so bad). But then she became depressed and developed IBD and this past spring, colitis. So anyway, mom doesn't handle goodbyes like this well at all and she knows it's coming. They can all feel it. Can you purr that Midnight stays comfortable for her remaining time and that mom will be able to handle it when her time comes? Mom will really need you all when that happens, she can't even stand to think about it now, she'll start crying. But she's got to be realistic. Middy is about 16 to 17 years old and has a lot going on in her little body. Sigh, my poor mom. She loves us all so much it hurts her so badly.
Thanks everyone, we love you all so much.
Oh my, purrs to your Mommy and poor Midnight....I know that with your Mommy's care, Midnight will be so loved and cared for during this sad time and you will come down and guide Midnight to the Bridge....we are so sad about this...
Hugs & Kisses
Harley sweetheart thank you so much. Mommy loves her so very, very much.
You have got our purr engines going too, and meowmy is pawyering fur Midnight and your Mommy, too.
Alex, your presence to guide Midnight when that time comes will be a comfort to your Mommy, because she will know that you will not only guide her to 'that most beautiful place', you will steer her right to the front of the welcoming lineup.
Pipo, Minko & Meowmy Ingrid
Thank you so much Pipo, Minko and Ingrid. Mommy is trying to hold back from crying even though it's not even time yet. She takes these things so super hard. Mom knows she's given Midnight the best care she possibly could and she's lived a lot longer cause of my mom. Lived with a huge amount of kisses and love. My poor mommy's heart is cracking just thinking about it.
I does anything fur you Angel Alex. Me & Novi sendin' purrs fur yer mama & Midnight.
Is so hard to lose a furriend/furmily member. Take care Ms. Lisa. We send you lotsa LUFFS.
Ingen is that you or is it Baby? Either way, I'll take those purrs and luffs. We needs them bad right now. Thank you sweetie.
Purrs to sweet Midnight and to your Mommy. It is so hard
to say good-bye. But when it is time, you will take her in your wings and gently bring her to the Bridge. Mom will take comfort in that, we know.
Dear Alex, I have told you guys time and time how much I thank you are special. How you have such big hearts and how Momma Lisa is brilliant. So....I tell you again.
Purrs to all of you, Midnight hang in there girl it won't be long. Momma Lisa we are here for you as usual. I'm sorry, I know it's like she's your own kit. Your an earth angel.
Biggles thank you sweetie. We're hoping it's just a setback or a flare up because we had a very unwanted house guest for one night and it set her off. But we can't deny that she's losing ground. She is still eating and wanting love and pets and stuff though so she's not quite ready yet. As soon as she decides it's time my mommy will say her goodbyes and let her go.
Zach, your words are so beautiful my mommy is feeling your warm paws of comfort right now. Thank you my dear and wonderful friends.
We will be purring too. We know you will be there with your Mom and to guide Midnight when the time comes. Your Mom loves you all so very much and that makes it all the more painful for the humans to watch us decline and to say goodbye. We send our purrs, hugs and love.
Thank you Skylar. Just knowing you and all of our other friends are here for us will help my mommy at least know she's not alone. That means everything to us.
Sending lots of purrs and big Normy hugs.
We're all here for you!
We so much purring for Midnight and you mom and all of you! My mom cried for weeks before I crossed the bridge. Each day became so heavy with the sadness of knowing what was to come. She could not bear to think of it either! Helping us cross the bridge when the time comes is the most loving thing of all. That doesn't make it any easier or less painful. Purring for you all!
Oh, we are praying very hard for Midnight to be comfortable and for your Mom too. She's such a wonderful person, loving her fur children so much. I know you'll be watching over your Mom too when Middy's time comes.
Thank you Norman and Skylar. Mommy will take those hugs and love each one of them. Cookie you said it so well sweetheart. Mom knows what is coming and right now she is dreading it! But at the same time, she hopes Midnight will give us a sign that she's ready so she can be peacefully help across that bridge. Mietzi thank you so much. You're all such wonderful friends, mom feels like she is so lucky to have you all and so do I. Thank goodness she won't be alone through this.
Sending her purrs!
Purring for Midnight.
Love, Kibbles family
We are sending purrs and prayers. Midnight is lucky to have such great care and love from you!
I'm turning on my mighty motorboat to produce extra large purrs for Midnight.
Sending giant purrs to your mom and Midnight.
Thank you so much everyone. Today is another day and she is eating like a hog today. We'll take it one day at a time and enjoy each one with her as best we can.
Sending lots of purrs to your Mom and to Midnight.
Sending purrrs from Heaven!!!
Thank you Rose and Indy! Love you guys!
We send our purrs too. It is so hard, even when you know it is coming. We purr that when it is time, Midnight will pass in her sleep peacefully. Just know that we are all here for you guys. mega purrs from the Kitty Quartet
Sending lots of purrs from Minnie and me for Midnight! Mom had a kitty once named Noodle who had similar problems near the end of his life with severe arthritis too, so she knows how Midnight must be suffering.
Keeping sweet Midnight in our thoughts for a soft release,
Penny & Minnie
We're sending purrs, darling. We are hoping she's jsut not feeling well...wondering if the vet thinks a bit of pred would help? But they you are the expert. No matter, purrs for Midnight, and lots of waves of comfort and love for you.
Thanks Tigger, Penelope and Ruffy. Ruff, she's already on pred! It was helping for awhile but she got stressed out by some family drama here and it sent her over the edge. Mom had to clean up lots of poop everywhere this morning, sigh. This is not fun, for anybody.
Hey Midnight when you are ready and not before, we are waiting for you. I know that Alex has a special reserved place for you. Meanwhile, we are sending you purrrrrrrrrrs and hugs from your friends, Alex, Juliette and the angels, Natasha and our Big Ben.....
p.s. sorry to hear about the poop problem. It is not fun to have that all over the place. I know that you are a good kitty and hate it too....purrrrsssssssss always...
It's poop AND pee now Natasha. She's refusing to use her box anymore.
Sending big angel purrs to Midnight and your mommy. We know it can be such a challenge to nurse along a loved one. Specially when you see them failing. It really pulls on the heart.
Molly and Misha
purrs coming from all of us here as well
your mommy is so good to you all, daddy's eyes leak when he hears this.
Thank you Molly, Misha and Blizz! Mommy is making herself sick with worry. I'm trying to tell her to stop that, it is what it is.
So sad Middy is not feeling at all well.
Juss keep her comfortable as much as you can.
Tell her she is so loved by all her families & furriends.
I have started a Candle link in honour of our dearest friend Lisa who is struggling her best in caring for her Sis's cat at this delicate time.
Please Furriends, light up a candle if you would, for love & support!
Luv & purrs,
Kally Kat ღ ღ
I hope this link goes smoothly for you all!

Thank you Simba and my gosh thank you so much Kally Kat! You are so wonderful! I'll go and light one too. Thank you again. My mommy needs all the strength to deal with this whether Middy passes soon or much later. We take it one day at a time. Today has been a good day for her.

She's having a very good weekend Shadow!! Thank you for asking. Those purrs are magic! Keep 'em coming. Mommy just went downstairs and gave her fluids and her medicine. She's such a good girl, never budges or fidgets or anything.
