Saying Goodbye

It's taken me a week to be able to write this entry for Tony. We said goodbye on February 8, 2007. He seemed to be doing so much better, as I talk about in his last entry. The evening of Feb. 7 it was getting apparent that he was not doing as well as we had thought. His breathing was beginning to be labored again and he wasn't interested in his food. We tried to tempt him with chicken and he would eat a little bit. He walked very slowly and it appeared that he was not comfortable. On the morning of Feb. 8, he went outside to potty and couldn't. I picked him up to give him a head scratch, and he cried like it had hurt to be touched. My husband and I decided that he was no longer enjoying life and that we had to prevent him from suffering needlessly. Saying goodbye was very hard. Tony had lived with us for about 2 years and had completely stolen our hearts. We loved the way he drooled and talked to us. He really enjoyed playing with Sparky when we first brought him home and I have some wonderful pictures of them together. There are lots of great memories and photos and we will cherish them forever. Tony was a special guy and we think he was put into our home for a reason. The part that is hard is why it was such a short time.
Tony - we hope you are having a wonderful time playing with your new kitty friends at Rainbow Bridge. We know you no longer hurt and you can run and jump like a kitten again and we are thankful for that knowledge. Although I write this with tears running down my face, I am happy for you. Please know that we loved you and you will remain in our hearts forever. Until we meet again . . . Mom & Dad, Sparky & Tucker
