Arrival Story:
He showed up at my house, very skinny and weak but extremely friendly so I just had to keep him. At the time, I didn't have much money so I had to wait a couple months before I took him to the vet. What prompted me to finally take him in was an abscess I discovered on his belly. I had him tested for FeLV, which came out positive. My vet told me it'd probably be best to have him put down because he might not survive the effects of the abscess, but I opted for surgery because Maximo was just so sweet, I wanted part of his life to be comfortable and enjoyable, in a loving, safe environment. He came through the surgery beautifully (he was neutered and had his abscess removed and drained) and came home 5 days later. He then lived for about 7 more months before he started having trouble breathing.

He had feline leukemia and I think he also had feline infectious peritonitis. He lived with us for nine months before his illnesses got the better of him. I noticed he was not breathing right. His breaths were shallow and fast. So I took him in to the vet the next day. The vet did some X-Rays and told me little Max had a lot of fluid in his chest. Then he asked me if I wanted to treat it or have him put down. If I had had someone else there with me, like my mom or dad, I probably would have been strong enough to have him euthanized. But I was alone, and I didn't know what to do, so I asked to have the fluid drained. He died Nov. 9, 2005 while undergoing the procedure to drain fluid from his chest. It was awful. I should have had him euthanized, but I was just not strong enough to do what was best for him. He?s buried in the backyard next to our old dog Sheba. It was really sad he had to leave us, I feel like we didn't get much time with him. But I'm glad that he chose us to be his caretakers for the remainder of his life. He was such a sweet little guy.

My Tail of Devotion for Maximo (In Loving Memory)

My Little Maximo,

I wish I could see you again. I miss you so much, and I am so sorry we did not get to spend very much time together. If only you had not been sick, we'd still be together. I'm sorry I put you through so much that last day you were here; I should have let you go, but I was selfish and wanted to keep you with me. I know you're not sick anymore, but I still miss you terribly. I love you, Maximo, and will miss you until the day we meet again.

This is a special Tail of Devotion
