Disapproving cat....

is disapproving no more




The vet was going to come out at noon. Bob chose his own way out and passed the Bridge at 4 AM instead.

My friend Bob is in pain no more.

Rescued 7 years ago when some asshole abandoned him. He was starving when I found him. Hard to catch fieldmice when it is -15 F. Damned near frozen to death too....All he wanted was food, shelter, and love. I gave that. He gave back in spades.

He was FIV positive. Which is what killed him, ultimately.

'Twas a good 7 years. I think they were good for him as well. He seemed happy and content until Tuesday. The decline was swift.

I shall miss him. If  y'all could say a word to whomever you pray to for him, that'd be much appreciated.



I might not blog for a bit.

I am so sorry for your loss. Hard to lose a fur buddy but they know you loved them and saved them. They know.

We will light a candle in the window tonight to help Bob on his passage over the Rainbow Bridge.

He will live in memory and that's what counts.

I know how you feel. It damn near killed me when my ferret Ragnar passed. But you can console yourself with knowing you gave him a forever home, took care of him, and he had good quality of life.

Also, since nobody, and I mean NOBODY knows what happens after death, you might see him again. Ferret people have a tale about "Rainbow Bridge" where your ferrets go when they pass,and they play in a beautiful garden, by a bridge, waiting for you to come in the fullness of time. Who knows that doesn't happen. Gaffer has heard of it, apparently, so maybe cat people know the story too.
