Figaro crossed to the other side of the Rainbow Bridge this morning, at 8:15 AM with the gentle help of his Dr.Bends, who was fighting back tears herself. Even she loved what a special boy he was. We both knew we had tried hard to help him feel better and now he does.
I was afraid I had waited too long for mah boy. Around 4:00 PM or so yesterday, he was resting comfortably. At 10:30, I gently carried him into the bedroom, but the movement caused him to be nauseous and sick . . I purred for him, and he seemed reasonably comfortable the rest of the night, but I can just imagine how sick to his tummy the poor guy was. But it was definitely my “sign”.
On our way to see Dr. Bends this morning, he meowed mournfully just once. I cupped his sweet lil’ head in a hand-headbutt and promised him that nobuddy would be poking him in the butt or making him take meds….was just gonna help him feek all the way butter. He slept quietly the rest of the way.
After Dr. Bends first saw us, then went in the backroom for meds, I knelt down and softly head-butted Figgy and stroked him. He purred for me….and continued to purr and purr louder as the anesthesia took effect ~ already feeking butter….he was even purring, very softly, when his final sleep came.
I love my big Fig and I know he is far, far happier waiting at the Bridge for me, than he was being so sick. He can roll in all the nip fields and find shady bushes to hide under and watch the world go by….until we can cuddle again. Louie and Molly and Sugar are there, I’m sure, to greet him….along with all our lovely Angels.
I actually feel lighter of heart now that his suffering is over, but I will miss him terribly. Already do. Setting out 10 plates of mooshy food when I got home…. I sure miss that odd-number 11 “clink”.
