I have lost Spooky :(

Spooky left me today. Several months ago he was diagnosed with kidney disease but with changes to his diet and supplements from the vet he'd been doing well. He's gained weight and he wasn't living by the water bowl. He really seemed like he was going to be OK. But then last week he got a sinus infection. The infection cleared quickly with meds from the vet but Spooky stopped eating and quickly went downhill. The vet re-ran his numbers with a blood test and there were far, far worse than when he was first diagnosed with kidney disease. For 10 days I force fed him and for the past couple of days I was giving him SubQ fluids. Last night he was falling whenever he'd walk - and crying. This morning I woke up and he was just laying there gasping. We went to the vet and his temp was down to 98.5. His gasping was getting worse and I just couldn't let him be in pain anymore.

Goodbye, little Spooky. We only had eight months together. I hope you know how much you were loved. By me, by the other pets, and by all your friends at the shelter. Because of you I got involved with Purrfect Pals cat rescue, where I adopted you from. My dedication to the shelter will be your legacy. Because of you lots of kitties will get forever homes. I'll miss your sweet face - your little button nose and your beautiful gold eyes. I'll miss how you loved snuggling up to me - always curling up with me on the futon or hopping onto my lap at my desk. I'll miss your sweet trilling as you closed your eyes and treaded on my lap - looking at me with such love. I adored you, my little man. I just wish we'd had more time :( I never thought I'd lose you this soon...
