Hurts to lose another sweet kitty

loagiehoagieMay 6, 2011

Sigh. Today is probably the last day for my cat Sebastion aka Foofey Boy. He was diagnosed in August with a heart murmur and we were told he only had a few weeks. Well, he has had a couple of seizures and I think he may have had a stroke....he wanders around seemingly oblivious to his wherabouts. I found him a few days ago with his paw in the dogs water bowl staring at it.

Today he can't get up...he is all bones...too weak to stand...so I think this is the end. I'm waiting for my wife to get home to make the appointment.

I know I'll be a mess and am crying typing this out. He is 18 years old and has had a wonderful pampered life but it still hurts.

Sebastian: Feb.14, 1992 - May.6, 2011

Hugs to everyone...........

I'm so sorry. It does sound like his batteries are powering down. :-( He has had a long life and I'm sure a good life with you; this will comfort you in time. I've been there too many times. My sincere condolences...

Thanks for the kind words. They mean a lot. We just got back from the vet. Poor boy was just ready...he had no more fight left in him. He went peacefully and quickly. Shed a few tears but know that he had a great long life and have to try to keep those positive thoughts in my head.

RIP Foofey
