    Goodbye sweet Ike

    When I opened the back door to feed the outside gang, I found sweet Ike laying in the yard. I think he was hit by one of the neighbor's cars and he ended up in my yard.

    I am so sick about this. I can't even bury him because physically I'm not able to. So I had to put him in a box in the trash. That little baby is not trash. I told him that and hope he understands. I told him to look for his little sibby who died and for Leonardo, Luke, and Leroy. They will all watch after him.

    I so wanted to be able to adopt him some day or at least find him a home.

    He loved playing in the bush. Here is a last pic of him. RIP baby Ike. Please forgive me.

    Oh I am so sorry for your loss. He was quite the pretty boy in that pic.

    He was loved by you and he will end up at the RB. His body is just an empty vessel now that carried happiness and joy to you. Do you have a friend or neighbor that could possibly bury him for you?

    No, I'm pretty much on my own. I've recently developed arthritis in my shoulders and have trouble moving my arms or I'd try and bury him. He was all sretched out and stiff so it would need to be a long and deep hole. Way beyond what I could do.

    Rest in peace, sweet boy. Moff, I am sure he doesn't mind about not being buried, that's just his body, his spirit is now free from pain and hunger and want, and is at peace.

    Oh MoFF, I am so very sorry. That is so heartbreaking. You gave him love, and he knows it. You and he are together always, and he will greet you with love at the Bridge.. One Fine Day.

    I'm so sorry.

    RIP Ike
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    His spirit is gone now, MOFF, way up in the sky, traveling to the Bridge. He understands, and we do, too. So sorry for the loss of sweet Ike.

    Aww Moff, it is his spirit that knows how much you cared for him and his spirit has no need to be buried. His body will take care of itself as it was just a shell for his beautiful spirit to reside.

    Moff, you are a good lady - he knew that and had all of the benefits that you could show him in a short time.

    Rest in peace Ike - and play hard with the rest of the kitties that have gone before you.

    Thank you all so much!

    My vet is only open half days on Thursdays. I called her when they opened this afternoon. She sent someone over to get him for me. He will probably be creamated but that's better than being dumped on a trash pile. Of course there will be a charge but that's ok with me too. At least I won't have nightmares.

    Poor Frankie can't understand why I keep picking him up and cuddling him and cry in his fur.

    Big {{{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}}} for you and for all your beloved furbabies, MoFF. You are such a good, caring, loving person, and Ike knows this now and always.

    I am so glad that the vet is taking care of his body for you.

    God bless you and send you peace and comfort. You deserve it.

    Rest in peace, little Ike.

    Love from Pat and cats

    I've come back a couple of times to post, but LES took over and I had to close down.

    MOFF, I can't tell you how much my heart is aching for you right now. If I could, I'd take the next flight down there and bury sweet Ike, but Gini is right. His spirit doesn't need it.

    RIP sweet baby. You were loved very much.

    Big hugs MOFF.
    Much love always

    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!
