It is with great sadness and a heavy heart to say that Lucky just got his wings.
Several days ago I had to keep Lucky in a dog crate for his own safety and my peace of mind. He was getting extremely weak on his legs and I was afraid he was going to hurt himself or worse. I hated the fact that his last days were confined but he was out on the bed with me when I was home.
I got up this morning and force fed him some Science Diet A/D canned food and gave him some water. I put him on the bed with me afterwards and laid down with him. I told him that I thought today was the day and that I hoped his crossing would be quick, painless as possible and I didn't want him to suffer. I told him that when it was time to cross, that I didn't want him to fight it. I think he listened.
At 11:20am, he made a little crying noise. I was still right next to him. I picked him up and put him in my lap. He made a few small gasping breaths, waved at me with his right front paw, took a few more small gasps and he was gone. It was that quick. He passed in under a minute. It happened so quick that I didn't have time to really say anything to him. The waving of the paw will stay with me forever.
Lucky was a loner, a quiet kitty and never asked for anything. I am glad he chose me to live his life with. I think he was closer to 12 years than to 11 years but regardless of how old he was, he had a happy, loved filled life and he knows it. I know he loved me and hope that we will be reunited again someday.
Rest in peace my sweet boy Lucky. You earned your wings and I hope you fly high and fly free. I hope your spirit comes to visit to let me know that you are ok. You are with Tigger and Shelby and all the rest of the kitties that you loved that have crossed before you. You will always be my cute kitty, my cutie pie. I am the lucky one to have you in my life. Until we are together again...I love you Lucky with all of my heart and soul. God Speed my sweet boy!

Thank you for choosing Lucky as a DDP today! What a very pleasant surprise and an honor to be selected!
Thank you to all for the pmails, the gifts and all the kind words of condolences for my precious boy. I really do appreciate it! He's looking pretty rough today but he's still holding his own. Still going potty and drinking water but not eating. I just fed him a tiny amount of Science Diet A/D a few minutes ago. I don't want to stress him out any more than I have to. He's a fighter and I love him with all of my heart and soul!
Thanks again everyone! We love you!
