Kiwi just crossed the bridge at noon when he took his last breath while I was holding him.
I found him 3 hours ago laid out in his litter box. He was dying. All I could do was hold him until he took his last breath. He was fine at 5:30 this morning when I checked on him. It happened so quick. I'm just glad he waited to cross until I could hold him and tell him it was ok. He's not hurting anymore. I know the cancer took it's toll on him. He never complained. Up until yesterday morning he walked and jumped up on things but the cancer in his leg made it a little difficult but he didn't let it slow him down. Yesterday morning I put him in a kennel to keep him from getting hurt trying to jump up and down on the cat tree or on top of the kennel. He never let on that today would be his last day alive.
Kiwi knows he's loved and that his home is here with me. He's been a part of my life for over 6 years and a part of the indoor family for over 5 years. He was the keeper of the kitties...he bathed any kitty that was near him. I always asked him who is keeper was. He'd bathe the rest but rarely did they bathe him. He was a lover, not a fighter. He was my baby and I will always keep him in my heart. He was way too young to die and he's the only baby I've had so far that has had cancer. He was not the one that deserved that horrible fate.
He is now flying free and no longer in pain. Him and Cookie are together again. Why does God take the ones I love the most??? My heart is broken but I have closure knowing he's no longer in pain and that I was there holding him, loving on him and talking to him right up to his last breath. I love you Kiwi with all of my heart and soul. I will never forget you and you will forever hold a place in my heart and in my thoughts. Until we meet again young man. I hope you and the rest will wait for me at the bridge until it's my turn to cross that bridge and be reunited with all of my babies that have crossed. Rest in peace sweet Kiwi. I love you Kiwi boy!!!
