Little Edd, Eddie

Quick Bio:
-mixed breed-disabled -deaf
-blind -cat rescue

Arrival Story:
Edward was about 3 mths old when I heard about him. He was going to be " got rid of" on a Bonfire because he wasnt " normal". I drove to the place where he was and took him without even "looking" at him. Once away from that "place" I stopped the car and looked ...I saw a very sick kitten..almost lifeless. Detour to my vets , who looked and said lets end his misery. Edward was lay flat, lifeless but Purring his Heart out. I stroked him and he instantly sat up. Our Vet looked in amazement..He said we have to give him "overnight " at least. We had Edward for just 17 mths. But what a 17 mths that was, .So much Joy and heartbreak...He kept Vets VERY buisy.

Edward started having siezures, He was almost deaf, appeared blind.He lived in his own world, He could see "things" Pink Elephants, invisable mice, He didnt make eye contact very often.His hearing was very acute.He couldnt hear a loud bang but he could hear a pin drop two rooms away. Edward had 3 MRI scans, countless ER Hospital stays, ICU. His Siezures had to be seen to be believed. After 3mths of all kinds of tests they finally found he had a Liver Shunt. He was poisoning himself as his Liver couldnt remove any toxins from his blood.Edward was diagnosed Autistic. He behaved as an Autistic child behaves. He had surgery for his Liver Shunt at another Referal Hospital. He didnt have a seizure for 7 weeks after his Surgery.He was beginning to respond to us, He noticed more things, the other cats etc..Behaving like a "slow to start" kitten. He got a Urine infection ,was gived a medicine for this,.Within 1 hr Edwards Siezures started again. This is where we "lost" our "new kitten" and we where back to square one..People use to say ,"have him put to sleep, get another kitten" Edward fought for his Life and was happy in HIS World. He played with one blue toy mouse.He had one small mat that he claimed for his own.He would run, play eat his Special Diet.He had an indoor padded cage for nightime with CCTV and the monitor by my bed. Edward was NEVER left unattended day or night.Someone stayed in the same room as Edward all the time.Edward had a HUGE will to live, Did it matter if it wasnt in our world? No. He would "pop" into Our World every so often for a moment and give us Eye Contact. That eye contact was enough to bring us to tears. Beautiful. He never meowed, but did a strange chirp when his food was given.He had Vets around the world discussing his Medical history . No one had come across a case quite like Edwards.He made medical history ,Vets in USA and Europe all discussing medicines that might help Edward.His case was being used to help teach Veterinary Neurology students only last month.Dec 07 . Edward had major Seizures but instantly awoke and carried on doing whatever he was doing before the Seizure, He became unresponsive to Phenobarbitone, and Diazipam. Edward lost his last fight due to total Kidney failure. This fight Edward told me he couldnt win. We lost our Special, Special Needs boy on April 1 st 2005.He was so Very Special A true Fighter for His Right to Live , albeit in HIS World.

Hello, I dont get many visitors but today I had 2 visitors to my Page, Thankyou for stopping by to say Hello to me. Thankyou also for your gifts.
I dont talk often , but today I thought it felt right to say my Thankyous ,here in my Diary. I do enjoy visitors but as my page has a sad Story to tell, I guess not many feel they can stop long enough to say Hi. I can understand that.But I was very happy in my Earth World, I did enjoy popping into mums world too sometimes, but My world was all mine.It was just for me , I fought for my world , my life was different from other lives, but it was mine, I wanted to live it ,in my own way...I was alive, just in a different world than most purrs. I knew Love, Care, Kindness and although I did give mum so so many heart aches, fearss, worries, head aches...I knew Mum was there for me, I did know exactly when mum or dad switched on my CCTV camera as I would look directly into it....Only I knew how to connect with the CCTV when I was in my safe, padded night house.It always facinated my mum and dad as to how I knew when I was on TV !!( it was so silent but Edward Knew ! ) I have a Beautiful New Picture on my page.So full of Beautiful Colours, Thankyou so much D Max .Thankyou D Max , White Boots , Midnight Son and Ralphie for stopping by to say Hello to me. Chirps , Edward

Dedicated to All who Understand Living Love and to those yet to feel this Living Love. Hugs n Purrs . Edward, Bagpuss and Lupe, s Mum Lyn


If you ever love an animal, there are three days in your life you will always remember …

The first is a day, blessed with happiness, when you bring home your young new friend.
You may have spent weeks deciding on a breed. You may have asked numerous opinions of many vets, or done long research in finding a breeder.
Or, perhaps in a fleeting moment, you may have just chosen that silly looking mutt in a shelter - simply because something in its eyes reached your heart.
But when you bring that chosen pet home, and watch it explore, and claim its special place in your hall or front room - and when you feel it brush against you for the first time - it instills a feeling of pure love you will carry with you through the many years to come.

The second day will occur eight or nine or ten years later.
It will be a day like any other. Routine and unexceptional.
But, for a surprising instant, you will look at your longtime friend
and see age where you once saw youth.
You will see slow deliberate steps where you once saw energy.
And you will see sleep where you once saw activity.
So you will begin to adjust your friend's diet - and you may add a pill or two to her food.
And you may feel a growing fear deep within yourself, which bodes of a coming emptiness.
And you will feel this uneasy feeling, on and off, until the third day finally arrives.

And on this day - if your friend and God have not decided for you,
then you will be faced with making a decision of your own - on behalf of your lifelong friend, and with the guidance of your own deepest Spirit.
But, whichever way your friend eventually leaves you -
you will feel as alone as a single star in the night.

If you are wise, you will let the tears flow as freely and as often as they must.
And if you are typical, you will find that not many in your circle of family or friends will be able to understand your grief, or comfort you.

But if you are true to the love of the pet you cherished through the many joy-filled years, you may find that a soul - a bit smaller in size than your own - seems to walk with you, at times, during the lonely days to come.

And at moments when you least expect anything out of the ordinary to happen, you may feel something brush against your leg - very, very lightly.
And looking down at the place where your dear, perhaps dearest, friend used to lay - you will remember those three significant days.
The memory will most likely be painful, and leave an ache in your heart.
As time passes, the ache will come and go as if it has a life of its own.
You will both reject it and embrace it, and it may confuse you.
If you reject it, it will depress you.
If you embrace it, it will deepen you.
Either way, it will still be an ache.

But there will be, I assure you, a fourth day when - along with the memory of your pet -
and piercing through the heaviness in your heart -
there will come a realization that belongs only to you.
It will be as unique and strong as our relationship with each animal we have loved, and lost.
This realization takes the form of a Living Love - like the heavenly scent of a rose that remains after the petals have wilted, this Love will remain and grow -
and be there for us to remember.
It is a love we have earned.
It is the legacy our pets leave us when they go.
And it is a gift we may keep with us as long as we live.
It is a Love which is ours lone.
And until we ourselves leave, perhaps to join our Beloved Pets -
it is a Love we will always possess.
