There was no turning around for him. The blood results came back and his kidney values were horrible. They said only about 5% of his kidneys were working. He couldn't stand, and I carried him the night before (while waiting for the blood results) to the litter box and held him up while he went. He could not live like that. Thankfully he was not in pain, he wanted to eat and drinks constantly which I gave him by syringed (he lapped off syringe) while he laid. |
With no hope (though I hated thinking he was eating, and maybe didn't want to go), I took him in. It definitely was the right thing to do.
Seems like we never just lose *one*, it's always multiple. I hope that's it! The others are old too, but they thankfully seem to be doing ok. I hope they stay that way for a while.
This is so stressful. I loved my Fuzzy. He was the best cat! He was the only one I actually chose and bought, ($40 at a local pet shop 17 1/2 years ago), he was adorable and reached out at me.
Dixie was one of Dave's favorite, she basically lived on the bed, and would sleep up by our heads. She was a quiet little girl, timid, but very sweet.
I'll miss both of them, but life moves on I guess. We all will pass that way at one time or another. Still hard to let go. Be well Fuzzy and Dixie, I hope you found each other and all your other friends from the past, and many other sweet little animals as well.
Rest in peace my sweet little angels.
Fuzzy (September 1999 - March 16, 2017)
Dixie (August 2002 - March 13, 2017)
Both photos were fairly recent (maybe 2-4 months ago).
