Lucky got his wings 22 March 2014

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!

 

Still hanging on

Lucky is still hanging on. He went and drank water on his own today but he hasn't eaten. He sniffs what I put in front of him, seems like he wants to taste it but then changes his mind. I just force fed him a small amount of some Science Diet A/D stuff through a syringe. He swallowed about half of what I tried to feed him. He gets up and moves around on the bed and he even peed on my bed...I should be mad but I'm not. I took today off and spent the day with him but I can't take any more time off. I hope he's not waiting for me to go to work and then dies alone while I'm gone. He's always been an independent kitty, a loner, so it wouldn't surprise me if he takes his final journey alone too. I spent the last 4 days with him. I let him do whatever he wanted to do. He slept most of the time and slept at the foot of the bed the whole time. He knows he is loved and that is all that matters. I love my cute kitty and will miss him terribly when he's gone.

 

Is today the day?

Today might be the day that Lucky crosses the bridge...if not, it will be very soon. I just hope I'm home and can be with him when he makes his journey. Dying alone is my worst fear for my babies.

He sleeps most of the day now. He ate half a can of Fancy Feast Cod, Sole and Shrimp Feast yesterday afternoon but only took a single nibble at the Savory Salmon this morning. He sniffed it, took a nibble and then got up, walked away and laid down somewhere else. His purr motor seems to be on the fritz too...I had to put my ear to his body to hear him purr this morning and it took several minutes of petting to get it started...normally his motor is loud enough to hear across the room and it started immediately, even before I touched him. He's not drinking anything from what I can see. His ears still twitch when he hears me calling his name. Sadly, he is going down the same path Silly did 3 weeks ago...right down to the last meal he ate a day or two before he died.

It's so hard to see my babies like this. You saw them in their glory and you see them at their worst. The vet said he's not sick, he's just old and it's his time. I really think he's dying of a broken heart since Shelby died 3 weeks ago. He mopes around (or he did up til 5 days ago or so...never made a peep though. I found him in odd places, like on top of the ferret cage, when he never slept there before. He always slept on the cat tree or on top of the microwave, which I haven't seen him do in weeks now that I think about it. The night I decided to bring him into the bedroom for some peace and quiet, I found him on the counter in the pantry room...again, another odd spot.

He's never been a fan of cuddling. I never found him sleeping with me when I woke up. He's always been a loner although he loved Shelby and Tigger. Slowly, all the kitties he knew and loved since coming into this home are dying. That has to be taking a toll on him just as much as it's taking a toll on me.

I'm going to miss his squeaky purr. I took a video on my phone the other day of his purr. I'm glad I did because I can't even hear his purr now. He would jump up on the counter when I had something to eat that he wanted. I would give him the first taste before letting any of the others try it. We have a special bond that I don't have with the others and I'm going to miss that til the day I die.

I always knew this day would come but I also wished it wouldn't come for many more years. All I can do is be here for him as much as I can, give him some peace and quiet so he's not all stressed out, love on him and let him know how much he is loved and will be missed when he's gone. I will never regret giving him a home. All he wanted from me was a home to call his own and a human to love him and take care of him. He knows he is loved and I know he loves me. I hope his journey is painless and I'm here to hold him when he crosses. I just hope he lets me do that and doesn't wait until I go to work tomorrow to cross alone. He's going to do what he wants to do regardless of what I want. Time will tell. I love this little boy and can't imagine life without him. I love you Lucky, with all of my heart and soul. You are my one and only Cutie Pie, my Cute Kitty...forever and always! I love you!!!

 

Slowing Down

I'm afraid I'm going to lose my Lucky boy soon. Since Shelby died about 3 weeks ago, Lucky has really gone down hill. I wonder if he's depressed and missing her. He's not eating or drinking much anymore and is dehydrated and all he wants to do is sleep. He still moves around and he just ate half a can of fancy feast but he's just doing things a lot slower these days. I moved him to my bedroom where the dogs can't bother him and he's not stressed out with the yorkies jumping on him all the time. I'm hoping he bounces back but all I can do is take one day at a time and see what happens. His page here says he's coming up on his 11th birthday but he's probably older than that since he was already full grown when I found him. He's lived a happy life in luxury and he knows he is safe and loved here. Whenever he makes his journey across the bridge, he will take a lifetime of love from me with him. Isn't that what we want for all our babies when they leave us?

 

Another year older today

Wow! The years are flying by! Hard to believe it's been a year since my last diary entry. Mom says I'm losing weight and getting skinny and she doesn't like it. I say it's just cuz I'm getting older and I don't eat as much as I used to. We don't need as much as we get older. Since we really don't know how old I really am, I could be even older than my 9 years. Regardless, mom says I'm still cute as ever! I'm her "cute kitty" and her "cutie pie" and that will never change. Mom sang me happy birthday and wished me happy birthday several times today. Of course she thinks she can smooch all over me and she tries, but just like normal, I don't really like that sort of thing and always pull away. I'll let her pet me and scratch my face, ears, chin and neck and I'll purr and purr but that's about the extent of it. I got birthday treats which I really love and I'll get my birthday presents this weekend. Better not be something I have to share with the others!

Happy Birthday to all the birthday animals today! Hope everyone is having or had a great birthday!

Had another birthday yesterday!

I turned 5! That's like 35 right? I don't feel that old and I definitely don't look it if I say so myself! Next year I'll be older than mommy by a year!

Mommy almost missed my birthday! She's been so busy at home, at work, and upset all last week about Simba (we miss her so much!). Then Alfie sent me a special gift (a birthday hat...thank you Alfie!) and mom was confused. Why would Alfie be giving me a birthday hat...mom's thinking that my birthday wasn't for weeks! She's like "his birthday isn't until the 25th" and then she looked at her watch and realized it was the 23rd! Oops! Thank catness that Alfie remembered! Things could have been really bad if he didn't intervene! Thanks Alfie!!!

So mom went shopping on Saturday for my birthday gifts. She brought home something called a Wheel of Fun which has all kinds of holes to go in and out of. We have others like it in different shapes and they seem to be big successes. She got me some treats which most of us seem to enjoy. I also got more catnip toys cuz mom swears we eat those things! Mom's been growing some catnip for us and there's actually little flowers on it now...we've never had flowering catnip before, but I'm going to be the first to try it! So although this birthday could have been a complete disaster, it turned out pretty good.

Alfie invited me to a group called Tabbies With Tudes. They made a background in honor of my birthday which is where I got my current photo. Isn't it beautiful? That was so nice of them to do that for me! I feel so special!!! Thank you so much!!!

Well, I hope all 365 kitties that had birthdays yesterday had a purrfect day! Hope everyone had a great weekend. Happy Memorial Day everyone!!!
