I lost one of my fur-babies today.
Jax had a second bout of urinary blockage, I got him into the vets on Saturday, they have treated him for this before, so I had every reason to expect another full recovery. Except that he didn't. He went into a dazed state, responsive only to pain. We kept hoping. His BUN was 179 today; normal is 36.
Noble, regal, honorable cat.
Watch over him, and guide him on his way
to the spirit world.
May he be blessed in your names,
and hunt ever after beside you
and now it is time for me to let you go.
I could not watch you suffer,
I could not see you in pain.
Now you are free.
Your body is no longer sick,
or weak, or hurting.
Now you can run with the others,
playing and hunting as wild things do.
Because I loved you,
I had to let you go.
You will live forever in my heart
Now if I could just stop crying.
