|Bump chose me, I think, for a reason, his HCM. If it were not for that, I wouldn't know, what I know now, and be able to help other kitties and their mommy's or daddy's with it. I hear the terror in their posts. I remember that terror. I knew nothing about it, and had no one to help me. So I did extensive research.
It makes me feel good, to be able to help the mommy's and daddy's, give them the information, no one else will, and give them comfort and reassurance.
Just because Bump didn't make it, doesn't mean any kitty with HCM won't. He wasn't even supposed to live past 1 yr old, he made it to 5 1/2 yrs. He gave me alot of love, he had a great show carrer, and alot shuddered, thinking about going against him. I made some great friends on the circuit. And, I got the kittens because of him. I remember his greatest show, in Springfield MA, he won every ring.
I got a very nice card, from my vet, and she wrote a long personal message, made me cry, of course, but the warm thoughts, she intended, came thru. I also got a nice card from the ER vet, it was nice of her to do that too. Best of all, I got a report, from the Health Dept, in Albany, that his brain tested NEGATIVE for rabies. I told the ER vet, I wanted a copy of the report. I knew he didn't have rabies, I feel vindicated now.
I do believe, like Hunter said, sometimes things happen for a reason, sometimes they just happen.
Just as I was on a mission, to find where Bump's came from, took me a whole year, but I found it, now I am on a new mission, because Bump died. And those that know me, know, it will get done, maybe, this was the whole purpose, of Bump, and his saga.
The kittens are acting much better now, which makes me feel better. They don't check his carrier like they used to. I am thankful, they never stopped eating. Happened to me, when one of my mares was killed in a freak accident, my other mare, stopped eating, and just stood in the corner, and hung her head. I know that animals know, when their buddy dies.
