    I know now that this is a fight that Punky won't win & I've scheduled
    an appt. for 1:15 today at the Vets. Punky is getting weaker by the day
    and his eyes are full of pain. I am just being selfish to want to keep him
    with me, but it just kills me that his life has to end this way. He was a big
    strong boy and he has become a shell of his former self. I cannot let him
    suffer any more with no hope of ever getting better. My poor Punky.

    When you see the pain in their eyes that you know can't be made better, that's when it's time to show them how much you really love them. It is soo hard to do, but this is where LOVE has to guide you. Know I am praying and thinking of you today.

    I am so very sorry.
    I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
    Death thought about it.
    "Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."

    I'm so sorry to hear your latest news. Admitting it's time to say goodbye is the most difficult decision we have to make for our furry loved ones, but it's also the kindest decision when it comes to that point. You tried, Punky tried, but sometimes nothing can change the course of nature. I came across this poem when we had to say goodbye to our kitty, April, earlier this year. I hope it helps you cope with your sorrow, even a little bit. Punky will always have that special place in your heart.

    Cat Poem

    They will not go quietly,
    the cats who've shared our lives.
    In suptle ways they let us know
    their spirit still survives.
    Old habits still make us think
    we hear a meow at the door.
    Or step back when we drop
    a tasty morsel on the floor.
    Our feet still go around the place
    the food dish used to be,
    And, sometimes, coming home at night,
    we miss them terribly.
    And although time may bring new friends
    and a new food dish to fill,
    that one place in our hearts
    belongs to them. . . and always will.

    by Linda Barnes

    Rest in peace, Punky, and play gently at the bridge until that one fine day...

    We miss you. Play gently until we meet again.

    Punky is gone. He went to sleep easily & quickly and didn't fight the
    procedure at all. Before he left I kissed his head & stroked his ears when
    I told him about Rainbow Bridge. I told him to rest easy there & in time I
    would be there too. I told him to wait for me & I would call to him when I
    arrived. We would be together again.

    He looked so peaceful & I hated to leave the room without him.
    I spent some time with him afterwards & half expected him to wake up
    again. I waited awhile until my mind was sure his spirit had left. I will
    miss my little "timekeeper" kitty. Punky always reminded me when the cat
    bowls became dangerously low.

    I am glad to hear that Punky went peacefully...that poor little body couldn't go on any more. He has relief, and his spirit is free.

    More hugs and prayers to you, lizbud.
