Early this morning, kitty suffered from a complete saddle thrombus together with a clot to his brain. We rushed him to the emergency vet clinic where he was given aggressive pain medication and we were able to spend some time with him before they put him to sleep in my arms. He went peacefully.

Heart broken? Yeah. Doesn't even begin to describe it.

Oh, it's so hard. I know. I'm so, so sorry. Big hugs to you and yours.

Cathy said...

I am so sorry this has happened. I am thinking about you and wish I knew something to say that could make it better.

Rest in Peace sweet Kitty. "Big Hug" to Dr. K.

Hugs and purrrs.

Oh no, not this.

I am just so, so sorry. All I can say is that I've been there... and I understand the grief. When you love an animal who's been a big part of your life for many years, it just hurts like he** to lose him.

In time the hurt will lessen and you'll be able to remember all the happy times with kitty... even though right now it doesn't feel like that's ever going to happen.

Hugs and condolences to you, my friend, and know that they come from the heart.

P.S. I'll make a donation to the local animal shelter in his memory.

I envy you for getting to be with your kitty when you said goodbye to each other. I simply got a picture text message of my entire family being with my dog when it was his time. I hope that helps you heal faster. You gave kitty the best life ever.

Thank you all. So very much. Your words mean a lot. Thank you for understanding and for taking time to express it.

I would apologize for not updating you all on what has happened since, if it weren't for the fact that I don't feel any need to apologize for the grief that has left me beyond interested in blogging.

I've finally stopped crying at the drop of a hat, but that doesn't mean that I've stopped crying.

I'll be back to tell the full story (because I've learned some very valuable lessons through it that I do want to share should any of my readers have to go through this) when I can do it without collapsing in tears.
