It was time. Sab fought as hard as he could, but in all probability, it was GI cancer. The nausea medication didn't hold him. He'd vomit & it would just knock him off his feet. His eyes would glaze over, and he'd lay there, catching his breath, before getting up to say hi to me.
I couldn't let him suffer anymore. He slipped peacefully away, with Dr. Alex's help, at 9:18am EST. He made me promise, though, to post this last message when I got home.
My heart is broken, and this is now a catless, soulless apartment. It's going to take a lot of time to get used to that.
I will always be Sab's Mama. He touched so many lives & have left so many furiends in tears now that he's gone. Your love & support has meant the world to us - to me - and I promise I will eventually read the messages. For now, Catster is just too painful a place to be.
But here is Sab, to have the last word:
I am so tired, furiends. I just don't have any more fight in me. Nausea medicine didn't help me. I am in pain. I can't stop drooling. My back legs aren't working like I want them to anymore. Dr. Alex is quite certain that I have cancer b/c the medicine didn't work at all. I asked Mama to post this message for me when she gets home, after bringing me to see Dr. Alex for the last time & helping me go to sleep so I don't hurt anymore. I have had the most pawsome life that a cat could ask for. I had my Mama wrapped around my paws from the very first day.
Furiends, if you wish to share your love of me with others, could you do me a favor? The wonderful people at Diabetic Cats in Need helped me out last year when I got sick with the die-ah-beets-ies. Without them, I wouldn't have gotten to spend the last 15 months with Mama. If you want to visit them, they are at http://fdmb-cin.blogspot.com/
Sab had a fabulous life of love and adventure with you.
He knows how much you loved him.
Purrs for your heart.
Mom just told me but I already knew. *tears*
All those times when you and I were HOWLING, we were sending the Orangie Dude vibes back and forth across the Border.
Manx for being a Big Bro to me. I'll carry on for the both of us.
I'm real glad you're not sick anymore.
Purrs from another orangie, and condolences from his Mom. So sad to lose two members of the family in the same year. Keep Sab's memory close to your heart. He will always be with you.
Our mommy told us you had slipped away from all the pain and suffering, Sab. We know your momma's hurting and we send her soft paw pats and purrs and our momma sends her lots of love and healing hugs.
Loving purrs ~ Maggie, Angel Aggie, Clawdius Meowximus, Purrcilla Softpaws, Stryder and momma Maria
Though I never got to meet Sebastian, he seemed like a good furiend to have and wish it was. Sadly we must endure our furs last time with love, happiness of the days you two had and even the bad days with happiness. For I know that he will be greeted by all the angels @ rainbow bridge. May you, mom be blessed and love by all that know you and Sebastian and find peace, and comfort in the days to come. Let Sebastian fly free now and be ill free. May the almighty be with you in this time of sorrow too.
Sending you lotsa purrs.
