I'm finding this diary entry very difficult as I don't find it easy to go to my dear Jack's page. He died so unexpectedly and I still can't quite believe I'll never see him here again.
I took Jack to the Vets on Monday night as he was lethargic all day and wasn't interested in his food at all. He had a thorough examination and the only thing Terry could determine was that his temperature was high. He gave him an antibiotic and injection to bring his temperature down and felt he'd be feeling much better and eating in 24 hours. On Tuesday teatime he seemed much improved and, with coaxing and petting, he ate some minced chicken. I went to bed happy that he was on the mend and, although he didn't come to bed with me as usual, he seemed much more relaxed. At almost Midnight I heard Jack screaming in the back bedroom and went in straightaway, he had been sick and was obviously in pain. I tried to comfort him but he didn't want to know. I phoned Terry's mobile and he came as soon as he could, within an hour, but by the time he arrived Jack had passed away.
I don't want a post-mortem as it won't bring Jack back and would rather spend the money on the kitties.
I miss him so much and just ache to hold him again.
Thankyou so much to all our friends for the lovely messages and gifts, which are a great comfort.
Thankyou to Chandler Ray and family for this lovely poem:-
Fly free, fly high
For once again you will be spry
Nap upon the silky clouds
Today we gather with our heads bowed
Snuggling down in catnip fields
Until your wings can be revealed
Fly high, fly free

I don't have much computer time these days as mum is needing more care with her dementia and a friend needs help. I read updates and messages and try to keep up with furriends.
My kitties have received gifts for birthdays, pirate flags etc. and I haven't acknowledged them, the latest being Queenie's birthday. Also, Jack's human sister was married last Saturday. It was such a happy, relaxed, informal day and helped to lift our spirits. I look at all the gifts and messages and everyone is appreciated so much. Please accept my apologies for not sending thankyous.
Jack's ashes are ready to collect from the Vets but I can't face it just yet, although I want him home where he belongs.
Much love to you All from Jack and Mum. xxxx

Yes, today is my Birthday!!! I'm furry excited 'cos I know I'll be getting treats from Mum! I wonder what it will be?? I know she's got some chicken in the fridge so I'm hoping I'll get some of that and lots of brushing, which I just love!!
My dear furriends Humphrey, Roger and Greta have baked me a beautiful chocolate cake and it tastes as yummy as it looks! nom nom... Thankyou to them for my lovely red heart too!
It's almost 12 months since I was diagnosed with chronic renal failure and Mum didn't think I would make it to my next birthday but I take my meds like the good boy that I am and I'm doing really well! I've put some weight on and my coat is shiny again. Mum is so pleased with my progress!
I hope you're all having as wonderful weekend as I am!
Love & purrs
