My little lion, Wally crossed Rainbow Bridge this morning. He was my little baby. He had always been a sick little thing - his immune system was compromised early on from some serious illnesses. What I thought was a cold yesterday turned out to be FIP and we had to say goodbye this morning.

I feel like a part of me is gone. He was the happy Goodmorning when I woke up and the cuddle when I went to bed. I feel so totally lost and so does his adopted brother, Newton. We are trying to get through it with lots of play time and hugs, but my heart is just broken.

Nothing was ever fair for him. He had bad odds from the beginning and I know that it was a blessing for him to live through his early pneumonia and panleukopenia, but two years old is just too soon for me to be okay with this. Just two days ago we were playing with the laser pointer. I'm just lost.

Those we have held in our arms for a little while, we hold in our hearts forever. cloud 9

Yes, two years is much too short a time to be together, but you are wrong when you said nothing was fair for him. Wally did have something -- he had you.

Thank you. But he did far more for me than I ever did for him.

Newton and you will help each other through this. Wally will always be with you ... in your hearts.

Love ya, Wally!

Mom had me for 13 years and it wasn't enough for her. She made the hardest decision a pet parent has to make: to let me go. You did the necessary thing and your baby isn't in pain any more. Be assured he'll be waiting for you at the Rainbow Bridge; he will be healthy and happy. hughugrainbowrainbowrainbowrainbowrainbowrainbowhughug

I'm so very sorry for your loss. It's so difficult and heart wrenching to let them go when we love them so much. hug

Two years....They are so precious no matter how long but that is too short a time.
Wally may be back for another stay in his next life. So sorry and sympathies to you and
the family..

So very sorry for your loss. It surely is never easy to say goodbye to a fluffy member of the family. I wish you & Newton much peace in the days ahead. Your new guardian angel will be there watching over you every step you take. purrs & gentle pawtaps.little angelhug

I am so sorry for your loss, I know what its like. cry frown
I lost a cat named Rusty, I was just little then. He was sick too. Its so sad that these things happen, but they always happen for a reason. If Wallace were to live, it would have been happy and sad. Happy because, well you get to keep your cat. Sad because he would have to live in pain and be sick until it was actually time for the rainbow bridge, but again, things happen for a reason hug. little angel
