Moms intuition was right...I haven't been feeling well for the last couple of weeks. I slowly ate less and less. Mom decided after two years of fighting this renal failure it was time for me to be free.
I made my journey to the bridge last night at 6:30 p.m. Both mommies were with me. My passing was peaceful and I knew they both loved me. Mom will type more later, but as of right now, it's still really hard. Thank you to my catster friends, especially the olde furts for their love and support

It's Christmas here at our house! I spent some time with mom this morning before it got too nuts with all the family coming over. Mom thinks this is my last Christmas...I'm not eating as much now and my numbers are getting pretty bad.
She is loving me as much as she can. I can feel the love too...the moms gave me a nice nip mat that Friday's mommy made. It's REALLY nice and I enjoy laying on it. I like rubbing on it as well! There's cat nip inside there!
I'm grateful for family on a day like today....

Sooooo...Spirit....this is probably going to be the hardest one. You are now 17 and we now know you are in renal failure and have a heart murmur. You have been kicking it's butt for the last year though!
We got you when you were just a kitten. You were such a sweet, soft furry kitty! Well, you still are. I got you as a gift for Cindy but what ended up happening is you and I bonded. You were never fond of humans and it's not been easy and you are a skittish cat. Sometimes I blame myself for that. I'm not sure what I could have done to help you get out of your shell. I didn't have much cat experience. I do know that you liked your sister faith and your sister Floppy. It's nice looking back and remembering you with them. I know you aren't crazy about the beagles, but you sure know how to put them in their place.
You and I finally bonded several years ago when we moved to our new house. You weren't happy with the change and you were not too crazy about attention. I wasn't going to give up on you. When you swatted at me, or tried to scratch me, I stood my ground and I didn't get upset with you. That was the turning point. Now I can pick you up, give you scratches, hug you. I'm the only human you will let do that and I love you for the privilege of that! I wish you had opened up to Cindy but I could see Cindy had the same problem I did. I gave up too soon...I got frustrated when you swatted or tried to scratch me. I see you and cindy making progress now and that's a good thing.
You haven't been the most perfect cat, but always Spirit...I have loved you. You have trusted me to know that I love you and only want what's best for you. I think you see that now. I think that's why we get along so well. I love you from the bottom of my heart. 17 years....I wonder how many more years we have together.
