I just wanted to write a few lines to thank every one who has p-mailed,
Left gifts & offered condolences. I truly appreciate the love & support offered by all the wonderful feline & humans here on Catster. You can not know what it means to me & my family.
Smokey went to the vet on the 19th of Nov. We had noticed he was slowing down faster than expected. We had them run a complete senior panel of tests. By the time we got all the results back we knew that he was fading away.
I returned home from work last Friday at 12:30. Hubby said that
Smokey could not pass urine. He had called the vet & set an appointment for 3:30. Smokey would go to the litter box upstairs
then just stand there & yowl. Then he would go to the box in the basement & repeat the yowling. It was plain that he was in anguish.
We spent the next 3 hours discussing the situation. We could not let him go on this way. So we had decided to help him to the bridge while at the vets office.
I can not imagine that losing a human child could hurt any worse. Smokey was with me for over 16 years. He was only a Baby. He was a talker & would meet me at the door daily as I returned from work. he would not stop meowing at me til I sat down & held him for a while.
I think I shall always miss that.
Thanks Again for all the support & love.
from: Smokey's mom
